excellent provider. explains everything. spends perfect amount of time. never rushes through visit and always leaves on a positive note.
Dr. Tucker made special note regarding my child identifying herself as bisexual. This could have been easily overlooked but Dr. Tucker took care in providing reassurance to her about the inclusiveness of his practice and took additional time with me (parent) to learn how we as a family are adjusting to this news. It is clear that our daughter (and any child) will get proper medical attention and care from the physicians in this practice regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. There is even a sticker on the door which I hadn't noticed before. I appreciate that my daughter has a pediatrician who is a true supporter of her medical and mental health.
Dr. Tucker is consistently attentive, kind, inclusive to my child and myself, patient, and funny. We are so lucky to have him as our pediatrician.
Dr. Tucker is an excellent doctor.
great doctor and facility
I prefer to seek advice and guidance from the provider rather than seek outside providers help. Our provider seems to understand listen and resolve all issues when they arrive.
We love Dr. Tucker! He is very thorough and takes the time to listen and explain things.
Dr. Tucker is an excellent doctor for my family!
The staff and nurses are wonderful. We love thos practice.
We appreciate Dr. Tucker's widsom and knowledge. We think he has our son's best interest in mind. He is always on time and makes time to answer all our questions.
Very caring. So lucky!
Dr. Tucker had my daughter laughing and pleased to see him. He gave great explanations. Would definitely see him again!
Dr. Tucker is always so helpful whenever we see him. My older son actually enjoys going to the Dr. thanks to his pleasantness.
I truly love Allegheny Pediatrics. My son usually sees Dr. Gordon whom we trust impeccably, however for his recent illness we saw Dr. Tucker. Love him, great doctor. He spoke directly to our son, as well as us, and listened to all of our concerns. Couldn't be more pleased and as a mother couldn't feel any better knowing that my son is in good hands!
Dr Tucker went above a dbeyobd for us in our unique situation. He showed concern and and provided us with the best care. He and the nurse and the receptionist all came into the office early to treat my children because the schedule was already full. We appreciate the efforts Dr Tucker put forth for our unique situation.
the doctor is very responsible and care for the Child's health condition and follow up his health conditions
Dr. Tucker is the best! he takes him time with every patient and made sure we were all comfortable with answers
we were there for a 2day old well check. loved how the nurses took us right back to a room and didn't keep us in the waiting room. also let us stay in the exam room as long as we needed afterward to breastfeed, etc. I did not feel rushed at all.
all of the doctor's in the practice are the absolute best doctor's you could ask for. we've been going to this practice for 27 years and love it!!
we love Dr. Tucker! There is another CCP and other offices way closer but we drive 40 minutes just for him!
Dr. Tucker is always wonderful! We are lucky to have him as our child's doctor.
this office is always efficient, polite, empathetic and treats my child with understanding and respect. I have seen over the years the shift to asking her questions and listening to her vs the parent- this is ideal in helping to promote a healthy relationship with her doctors. We are so fortunate to have this as our GP team.
Dr. Tucker was knowledgeable and into the office quickly. We came in for a walk-in appointment. He spoke very fast as I assume he was getting in the walk-in patients before his regular hours. Would definitely recommend him as well. He was eager to follow-up with my daughter if the sickness got worse. Very appreciative.
Dr. Tucker is friendly & quick. He spoke directly to my child and communicated in a non-condescending and informative manner.
Dr Tucker is easy to talk to and shows a genuine care towards my kids.

Dr. Tucker is phenomenal with both of my children. They actually love visiting their doctor and look forward to their visits with him. He's top-notch!
We < 3 Dr. Tucker! He has been a great resource for us in raising our children. I'd highly recommend him and his practice!
Dr. Tucker genuinely cares about my child. He asked him questions about plans for life after high school and offered suggestions on how to help make those things happen.
Dr Tucker was thorough, patience, and engaging.
the wait time was more than 15 min, however, he apologized profusely for the delay
Dr Tucker was very informative and happy. He always seems to have the best advice for both children.

Dr. Tucker has always given my son exceptional care. We moved to the South Hills, but continue to see him because he is the best in the area for my son. We appreciate his professionalism, honest and direct approach, and his knowledge. He has always steered us in the right direction for our son's medical and emotional needs.
Appointment right away, was seen right away, provider was very caring.
Dr. Tucker was very nice during our visit. I appreciate the time he took to talk to my child while treating her warts on her foot. He kept her so busy talking that she didn't even realize he was done with the treatment. He made our visit very smooth and free of pain. Thank you
Dr. Tucker was wonderful. I literally brought my daughter in straight from picking her up at daycare, with no appointment, and he was super attentive and helpful during my daughter's sick visit.
Dr. Tucker is wonderful! He is very knowledgeable and caring.
dr tucker made sure to call me early the next morning to check on how my childwas doing. I'm really thankful for that.

Dr James Tucker is by far the absolute best. He is the most caring doctor I have ever met. I always feel he has my children's best interest at heart. He isn't aloud to retire till my children are grown up I would be lost!
always excellent, always respects my concerns & goes above & beyond, the whole office is wonderful, I'm confident my kids get the best possible care
I met with Dr. Tucker without my child today about some mental issues related to school. Dr. Tucker listened and explained things in terms I could understand. I felt like he gave me all the time I needed, and I will not hesitate to contact him in the future regarding this matter.
Dr. Tucker is an excellent physician. We had concerns about my son's appetite decreasing and weight loss, and his questions about familial and social issues showed that he is very tuned in to what adolescents have to deal with. We have always been happy with his care, and are very lucky to have him as our sons' physician.
Dr Tucker was wonderful as always
Dr. Tucker, Dr. Gordon, and every single provider at CCP Allegheny Pediatrics are uniformly outstanding health care providers for our children. We have been grateful for their services for more than twenty years now. It is an evidence-based, compassionate, competent practice at which we find excellence in every aspect.
we love Dr. Tucker!
Dr Tucker was very helpful in regards to my child's concerns. He seem to have a very caring attitude about my child well-being
Dr. Tucker is always very compassionate and willing to answer any questions we have.
we have used children's pediatric for 17 years and have always been very happy with the people and services involved.
Dr. Tucker, Nurses, Office Staff are all very respectful, efficient and caring. I would highly recommend this provider to others.
My daughter has been going to see Dr. Tucker since she was born, he is one of my favorite providers at the RIDC Park location. He listens to what I have to say without interrupting me. All of the staff are very friendly. the nurse at my office visit yesterday was absolutely fantastic, my daughter loved her and did even realize she received a shot. I have recommend a few people to this office and they all have loved it.
I love this place and feel fortunate to have the entire staff as my provider. my kids really like Dr Tucjer. he always makes them laugh and puts them at ease.
We did not have an appointment. We used the walk in option. We were taken back to the room right away. The entire staff showed concern for the health of my child. I was extremely satisfied with this visit. Being that my child is an infant and has never been sick before, the doctor explained everything in detail about the steps for my child to get better.
Dr. Tucker followed up via phone after hours to check on my child's progress/health. It was very much appreciated and gave us peace of mind.
Dr Tucker is always extremely helpful and patient
We are always pleased with the care at Dr. Tucker's office. I have never taken my children anywhere else.
Best office around! Best physician on the planet :-)
Dr. Tucker has always made us very happy with routine or sick visits. I am always so surprised with the amount of time he takes at annual visits to discuss growth and what to expect with our daughter. Very pleased!
It made a world of difference to my child and I that Dr. Tucker was willing to wait for us to arrive when I called in with a concern about an ear infection. It saved me the time, worry and stress of knowing that her doctor would see her in an environment where she is comfortable and close to home.
My children have seen Dr. Tucker for the last 6 years and I highly recommend him to my friends and family. He is a wonderful, professional provider who has always demonstrated a concern for the well being of my children.
great experiences so far with both providers we've seen thus far. it's been wonderful coming to this pediatric office.
I've had bad experiences with one doctor before I switched to this practice. I am so glad I did. This practice is very friendly and the wait time is amazing. The staff are very kid oriented and explains things that you as a parent understand.
All of the doctors and staff always takes such great care of my son! Love this office!
love all the nurses & doctors!
The staff and doctors are always very kind and helpful.
we always have a great experience
