    Dr. Tucker is by far the best doctor! He listens, he cares, he asks all of the ?'s. He takes his time but is still somehow on time. He will always be by go to for injuries or anytime I fall, trip, or in general hurt anything! He asks about my family and how they are and remembers everyone! (HE'S THE BEST.)
