Dr. Rucker is everything you want in a medical Dr.. Referred by another Dr. to be our GP, his advice is ALWAYS so spot on and he is the only Dr. who has been able to make the correct recommendations for husband’s unique situations. My husband loves him and will only trust his advice. He is super nice, a great listener and so popular that his office is difficult to get through to. But the quality of his medical care is so great that he is still worthy if more than 5 stars!

My Father, Herbert Carmel, died in a Florida Hospital, after 16 months of sufferring due to the unprofessional conduct of Dr. Steven Rucker. Dr. Rucker refused to exercise his fiduciary responsibility to my father, about the life threatening conduct of my father;s chosen medical proxy holder. This unethical proxy, Herbert Carmel. Randall Carmel, refused to provide my father with continued dialysis, and refused to provide my father with in-home nursing and rehabilitative care.

I would recommend Dr. Rucker because he was conclusive and assertive about his medical findings and I liked it especially and it saved me money opting out of other medicines.
