    Dr Tucker is good to listen to concerns. He offers options when possible and includes the patient in decisions about their care. I trust Dr. Tucker to do good work, do it correctly, and do it well.

    I haven¿t had a treatment plan described or suggested to me yet because we need my radiation records first before having that discussion.

    Dr Tucker was very nice took a look at me and seemed to know what I needed however I haven't heard anything back and tried calling the office for a good couple of months without a call back and one girl lady who answered the phone was kind of nasty to me and told me to go to my chart which at the time I forgot my password anyway I just need this service and I need help so if I can get that I'd be greatly appreciated
