I have been a patient of Dr. Paul Tucker for approx. 18 years, and have complete confidence in his care and guidance. During this time, my family and I have recommended Dr. Tucker to several of our friends, We know four of them have become his patients and are very happy to be under his care.. Recently had an episode in another office, he called Dr. Tucker who saw me the next morning, working me into his schedule. He set up a session of monitoring and follow up visits.

I am convinced that Dr. Paul Tucker saved my life. Shortly after a flight from Boston to Austin i had bilateral pulmonary embolisms (i.e., blood clots in my lungs). I was hospitalized for a week of testing and released with a diagnosis of thrombosis resulting from the flight. Dr. Tucker knew my history of extensive overseas travel and referred me to an oncologist who diagnosed lymphoma. I am now cancer free and Dr. Tucker is responsible for staying on it until the correct diagnosis was found!
in Schertz, TX |
Dr. Tucker is very caring and always maintains explicit documentation and is meticulous with detail. Keeps things simple to understand, communicates clearly and concisely. Has a strong ability to analyze problems and get you the correct treatment. Is an emphatic listener and assertive without being intimidating. Is highly competent and respects the opinions of others. Very honest, with strong moral character and pleasing personality. My Husband and I are both would highly recommend Dr. Tucker.
in Austin, TX |
Dr. Tucker is thoughtful, balanced, pacient, and takes the time to thoroughly explain the diagnosis, and treatment options, I am being treated for cardiomyopathy and AI. It is hard to overstate, for those who do not know, how easy it is to feel insecure and paralyzed when you first receive that kind of diagnosis. I’ve had a few cardiologists, Without question, I am blessed ro have Dr. Tucker on my side.

Dr. Tucker is awesome. We feel secure in following his guidance in my recently installed Pacemaker.
Marble Falls, TX |
Dr Tucker has been my cardiologist for the past 24 years. He is simply the best! Thanks to him, serious problems were caught early, and taken care of promptly.
in Dripping Springs, Texas |
Dr. Tucker and the medical staff are an exceptional team, working together to provide exceptional service. As a 12 year veteran of Quad By-Pass surgery, I can say Dr Tucker is the best.
in Austin, TX |
Dr. Tucker's absolute priority is his patients. I can say that having known him first as a nurse 20 years ago and now, after many very positive physician recommendations, as his patient. He is knowledgeable, caring and efficient. Barring emergencies, I have always been seen in a timely manner and his instructions are clear and thorough, Additionally (and very importantly), his staff, physician's assistant and his nurse meet the very same high standards he exemplifies.
in Austin, TX |
Paul is an exceptional listener and problem solver. Based on my symptoms he recommended two non evasive tests while explaining their purpose. His personality is professional and personal. I enthusiastically recommend Dr Tucker to anyone in need of a cardiologist.

I have been a patient of Dr. Tuckers going on 17 years now. He is friendly, knowledgeable, caring, and makes a genuine effort to ensure his patients are taken care of. I recommend him to anyone in need of a cardiologist.

Doctor Paul Tucker along with his entire staff has made me feel I am in the "best of the best" hands for my heart health, His dedication and knowledge makes me feel secure in knowing I am getting the most up to date treatment, I am so thankful my doctor referred me to him.
in Cedar Creek, TX |
Even with a scheduling snafu, Dr. Tucker's staff were professional and gracious in handling my appointment and kept me right on schedule. I have been a patient for over 10 years here and have found Dr. Tucker to be very comfortable and fully engaged in treating me when I am there. He reviews my records, my "numbers", and makes sure to ask me the right questions to give me the correct treatment. He has surprised me on a number of occasions by remembering very specific things I have told him.
Austin, TX |
Dr. Tucker has been my cardiologist for 10 years. As a nurse new to Austin at that time, I looked at cardiologists that I worked with and Dr. Tucker was my choice. He expects the only the best from his staff and gives his best to his patients. His experience means I don't need to have any worries.
Austin, TX |
Have been a patient of Dr Tucker's since 1995 I believe. Without Dr Tucker's expertise my medical issue would have been ignored by me and I would not be enjoying life now! He has been very thorough and cautious, with every decision we have made. He has sent me to specialists he knows in the field relevant to my situation. Our family is in the best of heart health care with him. We feel very fortunate to be his patients and to be able to rely on his care and that if his staff.
in Austin, TX |
We have been very happy with Dr Tucker and his office staff. Recently my husband had an immediate visit and he was seen by PA Molly Kosoris. We were very encouraged by the visit and with the knowledge and expertise of Molly in this particular situation. She was efficient, friendly, put us at ease and did all she could to expedite a procedure that was necessary. We walked out of there feeling as though we had been taken care of by a family member. Nurse Mauri was also part of the success.
Austin, TX |
Everyone is always helpful and friendly. Always in and out in a timely manner. I have recommended him to some friends.
in Bertram, TX |
I do not believe you can find a better cardiologist than Dr. Paul Tucker. Dr. Tucker is the individual that had the ability and knowledge, plus his professional manner to convince me that I must have open heart surgery or suffer a fatal heart attack at any time. I did have the surgery 11 years ago, I still work fulltime, hunt, fish, travel. Seeing Dr Tucker regularly allows me to have confidence in my health to enjoy life. You cannot go wrong in having him as your cardiologist!
in Austin, TX |
My appointments with Dr. Tucker are always pleasant experiences. I am seen promptly, and treated courteously. My questions are answered clearly and concisely in a very professional manner. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Tucker as my Cardiologist.
in bastrop, tx |
A top notch cardiologist!!! He wasn't my first cardiologist but I switched to him a few years ago and it was the best decision I've ever made. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Friendly, competent, and all business. A high level of confidence in whatever he recommends.
in Austin, TX |
He is very completed in his exam; explains things well and is very easy to communicate with through the examination process.
