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
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!!!
Dr. Tucker is absolutely wonderful! All three of my children absolutely love him and look forward to office visits.
always positive. genuine caring.
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.
