“Dr. Tucker and his staff did an excellent job.”
– Nathaniel E.
“Dr. Tucker has always taken the time to listen and understand the issues I've had with living in chronic pain. I'm finally able to live a normal lifestyle thanks to Dr. Tucker and the staff at NTO. I would highly recommend Dr. Tucker to anyone surrering through chronic pain.”
– Scott B.
“Dr. Tucker never rushes me out. He's been very patient with my situation and together we are making progress. He has an awsome staff as does the entire North Ortho practice. Thank you all.”

“I may be prejudiced in my reference to Dr. Tucker. Of the 11 doctors I go to, Dr. Tucker I feel most personal with.”
– George C.
“I've been seeing Dr Tucker for about three years for pain management. I have every confidence in his ability. Most recently, about 2 weeks ago, he did a rhizotomy on the lower left side of my spine, L2-L5. I had back surgery in Dec 2016 where Dr Briseno replaced L4 & L5 with rods and screws and after 4 months the discomfort in my lower back had not subsided, so I decided to see Dr. Tucker. Since he had to go behind the rods & screws, it made the procedure more difficult. It's been awfully rough this time, and I continue to wait optimistically for relief because of the confidence I have in Dr. Tucker and because of prior success of his treating my pain issues with both zrhizotomies and epidural injections.”
– Gloria D.
“Three years ago, Dr. Tucker performed a radiofrequency ablation on my left knee. I had undergone cortisone and "Rooster Comb" injections previously with only short-term success. Dr. Tucker explained the process of radiofrequency ablation to me and we set a date to get it done. It was a tremendous success regarding my aching knee. I got to watch the whole thing on a video screen right in front of me. It was painless and the results were just as I expected them to be. I'm going back to Dr. Tucker for the treatment of pain in my lumbar spine at L4 and L5. His approach will be substantially similar to the one that fixed my knee. Dr. Tucker told me about the RFA procedure and I was completely on-board with it. It was one of the best health decisions I have made in my life.”
– James C.
“Dr. Tucker has gone above and beyond to help me through my ordeal and never gave up on my situation even when I thought there was nothing else that could be done to help my pain. I never thought I would be this active and pain free again! His nurses are friendly as well!”
