Ratings for Dr. Howard J. Tucker
Fantastic! He is out of retirement. He is currently working at St Vincent Charity Hospital. I have been seeing Dr Tucker since I have been a child, for almost 50 years, he is a very special person, friend, doctor, and mentor. The man is brilliant. He continues to attend conferences and keeps updated in his field. He extends himself and goes that extra mile for all of his patients. You never will have to speak to a nurse if you are sick at home, he always returns phone messages and provides information his patients require. I love this man, he is an inspiration to the medical field and other people he meets!
Dr. Howard J Tucker is brilliant. He knows all the old school medicines and will refer to those that the new MDs are taught in school not to prescribe as they can have side effects that scare them, he works closely with his patients and will monitor them extensively. He is easily the best neurologist around. I have a tricky condition and he has fought to help me legally and medically, he cares way more then other doctors who push you in and out.
He may not always be on time but that is because he spends a lot of time with all of his patients. He is an absolute fantastic MD and person. He will always take the time to call you back. He will always find a way to see you if you need help or a perscription filled. He listens, knows a lot about medicine, and cares. I don't know what I will do when he retires. Dr. Tucker you are great!
My girlfriend suffered for a month waiting for her prescription. He also has yet to call her back regarding her MRI results after leaving numerous messages for him. Absolute non sense. Very poor healthcare and all he does is feed people pain pills and turn them into drug addicts.
I don't know what I'm going to do if he ever leaves. He actaully understands the pain I'm in and addresses it, he doesn't brush me off and tell me it's all in my head and physical therapy will do the trick. Another Dr said that and it didn't work. Right now I'm stuck though he's gone for at least 6 weeks and I need meds. Pretty soon I won't be able to stand straight let alone stand at all. Can ANYone help me? I need a good Neurologist that understands what severe pain is. If you have a name of a good one in NE Ohio area please post here! Thanks so much. I don't know how much longer I can take the pain.
Dr. Tucker is without a doubt the best doctor you will ever find. He is caring. He listens. He works with you. You are a person to him, not just a file number. He has been in practice for a long time and has the human quality that is lacking in so many other doctor's today.
