Miami, FL |
No waiting time. Clear instructions. Great and knowledgeable doctor. Listened very well.
in Sunrise, FL |
I really didn't have a problem with Dr. Tucker, he was nice and informative. However, I can't give him a good rating because of the completely unprofessional treatment I experienced with his office staff. I still have not received a return phone call from the doctor, it's been over a week. The written instructions I received were not the same information he told me in the office, I need clarification & dosage information. I called 4 times, & the person who answered the phone was extremely rude.

Although wait times are not fun for this dr, what other doctor do you know that works at 6:00pm on a Friday night? I don't know any. he has always been wonderful with my daughter and patient and forthcoming with his information. I think he's a compassionate, caring doctor
Winter Haven, FL |
I cannot express how unhappy I am with this Dr. We waited two hours with no apology.
Pembroke Pines, FL |
He was great with my son and he is a friendly doctor. Doesn't make you feel like he is in a rush to see you and get you out. He takes his time with his patients.
in Fort Lauderdale, FL |
He was kind, comprehensive and we never felt rushed- patiently answered questions about our daughter's condition. His staff was excellent also. You may end up waiting a little bit but his thoroughness is what takes a little longer and he provides that care for everyone so be happy about it
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Outstanding staff and Doctor. My child was sick and needed to see a doctor right away. Office staff called me back when there was a cancellation. Very knowledgable Doctor. Good bed manners
in Ftlauderdale , FL |
Horrible experience today waited 1.5 hr in the waiting wood and another 1 hr in the examination room it's now 6:30p and are leaving without being seen. I hope they don't think I'm letting my insurance pay for this visit.
in Plantation, Florida |
Dr. Tucker is amazing! I've been suffering with Ulcerative Colitis for 5 years (I am 15 now) and for the first 4 years was seeing a different GI. In those 4 years, they did nothing to help me. Since I have started seeing Dr. Tucker in March of 2015, he has helped me tremendously. He has fought with my insurance company for me, tried many different treatments, and given me hope that I will obtain remission. Yes, his office wait is long but it is so worth it. He really cares about his patients!
