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
Love Dr. Tucker and the entire staff!
very knowledgable. took time to answer all our questions.
We love Dr. Tucker and the staff at Children's Community Peds! I feel so lucky to have them watching over my children's health and well being.
Everyone is always wonderful through Children's Community Pediatrics.
efficient. made a phone call to ER on our behslf
I believe this was the very first time we saw Dr. James Tucker. He was refreshing and bubbly, with a very positive and encouraging attitude to my 11-yr old daughter. He provided a thorough but quick analysis of the problem and provided the test results to us. We were very happy with his provision of care.
I couldn't get a word in edge wise and then he left. Not happy with this visit
Dr. Tucker is an excellent doctor and perfect for my boys. He takes the time to thoroughly discuss concerns of his and mine as well.
Dr Tucker is super nice and engaging.
my children are all treated with the best care for over 19 total years of coming there
We love everyone at CCP! everyone I the office is great with my son
I have been coming here since I was born. Dr. Tucker is the best!
We have always been extremely pleased with the care our children receive from everyone at this office!
Great first experience with this practice and Dr. Tucker. We are very confident that we made the right choice for our child's health needs.
I have always had a great experience with this care provider, him and all the nurses are great. I have 5 children soon to be 6 and I would never want to go anywhere else. Sucha great caribg group of people there.
Dr. Tucker is an excellent doctor and all three of my children have gone to him. I trust his judgment and the health of my children
Always a great experience.
I was preparing to leave the practice due to my son's previous pediatrician leaving. However, once I saw Dr. Tucker in RIDC park, I knew I wanted to stay. He was kind and thorough, which for a first time mother like myself, was very important to me. He showed respect for our concerns and personal wishes. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone I know with children.
I bekiebe dr tucker has the children's best interest at heart which is why I allowd my son to be seen my him. however he cut me off several times as I was trying to speak to him and disagreed with me about a common medical condition that we both have. listening skills.....
Dr. Tucker is always very professional, and great with my son, from the time he was born to now (17 years later)! I would definitely recommend him as a wonderful Pediatrician.
Only complaint is the very long wait before in the waiting room and waiting for the physician. With small children it is very difficult to have them remain calm for over 45 minutes waiting for the physician.
This is one of the best offices. I would take my child to see any of the providers up there
always a great experience with Dr. Tucker and the entire staff!
I have had both my kids with this practice since birth. I would recommend to anyone. They both love Dr Tucker, and ALL the nurses and staff are exceptional!
Dr. Tucker and the nursing staff have always been so kind and compassionate with us and our son. Dr. Tucker is very professional and honest with information he provides. He does a great job with our son.
Dr. Tucket and his staff are the best!!!
always positive. genuine caring.
Dr. Tucker is absolutely wonderful! All three of my children absolutely love him and look forward to office visits.
Dr. Tucker has been my child's pediatrician since she was born. I have never seen any need to change. That should say it all!
Very nice experience at this practice...
VERY pleased with Dr. Tucker. He spoke to me and my son in a way we could understand, respected what we had to say, and took his time with us. Very welcoming, very knowledgeable--we're VERY happy with him!
Dr. Tucker was AMAZING. He was so genuine with both of my girls. He made jokes with them and they absolutely loved him. It is truly amazing how he interacts with kids.
great doctor,would choose to see him on a regular basis if he were available at the Natrona heights location
Dr. seems to be in rush and try to get the visit wrapped up as soon as possible. His attitude makes me uncomfortable. They should book the patient that way each patient will have enough time and deserved attention.
Dr. Tucker provided us with information for a nearby pharmacy which we used to fill our daughter's prescription. His suggestion was excellent as the pharmacy staff were extremely helpful, courteous, and speedy. We will be using this pharmacy again.
I called in the morning but was not able to come to the walk in hours. I was given the time that was most convent for me. I waited in the waiting room form about 3 minutes and in the exam room for about 3 minutes. Everyone was prompt and courteous. The nurse was wonderful and Dr. Tucker was fantastic. He listened to my concerns, looked my child in the eye and spoke age appropriately with him and made a diagnosis. After just one day of the medicine, he is already feeling better. I am very pleased with this practice and will continue to take my son to Dr. Tucker.
doctor tucker is a very intelligent doctor but I always feel rushed when im there . there is not a sense of calm.
Dr. Tucker is amazing.
I really like Dr. Tucker, but I wish he would let me speak more about my concerns. He is very nice and good with my child, but quick to cut me off when I try to speak.
Dr Tickets has been my 4 children's pediatrician for many years now. He is nothing but wonderful. Always caring and understanding of any concerns I have for my children. He is very knowledgeable with answering any questions I have and explains everything to me so all of his answers are easily understood by me. Not only are my children in great care with him, he also makes my children feel very comfortable at their visits and he always makes them smile and laugh. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
This doctor was great. Had a sense of humor and very good bed side manner.
Dr. Tucker is a good doctor. Although this was my first probably my last walk in visit. Dr. Tucker rusher through both kids visits. Felt like I was putting him out. This is not his normal bedside manner. Although if I make an appointment or walk in, you recieve the same amout of money. Very short. I could have gone to med express. Thought I went down there for doctors who work well with kids. I have never felt like this in either office in past. I don't think I will use your walk in program again.
Dr. Tucker has always been very compassionate and thorough when meeting with us.
Dr. Tucker spoke with my daughter with a firm but very caring tone that made her want to listen to what he said and want to follow through with his recommendations once she gor home.
Fabulous practice! Great concern showed. Short wait. Great follow up.
everyone at this office is professional, prompt and courteous
Thank you for talking to my kids without infantilizing them. Mutual respect for parents and kids are very appreciated.
Dr. Tucker has always been wonderful to my son, makes him understand, is open with questions/concerns, feels comfortable with him as a doctor.
It was a positive experience.
I love this doctor's office! Everyone is so nice from when you walk in, until you walk out! I wish they took adults so I could be seen there!
very kind and patient.
The doctor was really good with my child. He removed my son's staples without him being scared. My son didnt even know it was over! Very happy with the doctor! I can tell his is very experienced with kids!
Dr. Tucker's bedside manner was much improved this visit. I can really tell that he's making an extra effort. Well done and keep up the great work!
I love Dr Tucker and his staff, they are just wonderful!
Dr tucker is wonderful and helpful with suggestions/advice
We love CCP, the nurses, front desk staff and doctors....truly top-notch!
A consistently good experience with the staff and doctors at this office.
We love Dr. Tucker. He is always friendly, upbeat and to the point.He makes us feel comfortable and taken care of.
We are treated as if we were family members. from receptionists, to nurses, and doctors (dr.tucker usually) they all are so helpful, caring and I am lucky to have them there for my children.
love dr. tucker and the way he handles my kids and getting them thru tough stuff
Dr. Tucker is very present during every visit. He genuinely cares for my children.
I am always impressed with the level of care we receive in this office.
this is an outstanding physician and practice
Because of my husband's health history, this visit was particularly stressful for me. Dr. Tucker validated my concerns and alleviated my fears. He was able to take my very shy son and get him to interact with him. He was patient with my concerns about my son's health and provided recommendations about his care and was willing to follow-up with us before the weekend if his condition did not improve. It is such a relief to know that if we cannot see Dr. Koenig we know that we will receive the same level of care and compassion with Dr. Tucker.
I am very happy with the care my family receives at this office. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Dr. Tucker goes above and beyond to treat the kids both physically and emotionally. He is supportive in dealing with our questions and concerns. We are treated like family!
the staff worked us on for an unscheduled visit the day I called thanks to dr. Tucker's flexibility to help his families. this was very appreciated.
Dr tucker is very good and we recommend him. he's ways good at advising our kids and speaking to them clearly.
Dr. Tucker is wonderful! My husband and I couldn't be happier with the care that our daughter receives. The entire staff is great! Bragg about Dr. Tuvket and the staff every opportunity we get. keep up the excellent work!!
Dr. Tucker is the best! we love him and my kids look forward to seeing him. He Always makes them laugh. he is a wonderful doctor and person.
Dr Tucker is fantastic!!!
love Dr Tuckers office.
wouldn't mind more warmth when checking the child's body for a rash since she is age 11, she is more modest now.
We have had Dr. Tucker for all 3 of our children with the oldest being 13. He started out in a different office which wasn't all that close to us and when he relocated even further from us, it wasn't even a question for us to consider switching health care providers. We trust Dr. Tucker immensely with the care of our children. He always takes his time with visits, explains things thoroughly, and has even had us come in in his lunch hour to talk with us.
My daughter loves Dr. Tucker. He communicates so well with her even though she's 7, that she's disappointed anytime we have to see another provider for a sick visit.
Dr Tucker has gone above and beyond to make sure my kids are being taken care of. I couldn't ask for a better or more informed Dr.
Dr. Tucker is professional and personal. In my appointments with my two girls, he has taken the time to explain conditions and even drawn diagrams for me. He really cares about his patients and their families.
Dr. Tucker was recommended to us after the birth of our daughter in January. We are very pleased with our first 2 visits with him. He made use feel comfortable and eased our new parent concerns. We will definitely be continuing to visit him!
Dr Tucker made several calls to follow up how my daughter was doing
dr. tucker is a wonderful doctor, he puts my kids at ease, and I know he's doing what is best for them.thank you for caring:)
We all love Dr. Tucker, amazing doctor!!
Dr. Tucker always listens to my cares and concerns. I appreciated his write-up regarding ticks.
