Specialties

Dr. Neil T Tucker has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Gastroenterology

    Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
    Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

appointment today 10/8/15

I had an appointment at Dr Tucker office today. Upon arriving there were 5 pieces of paper that said don't touch glass. The office smelled badly. I rang the bell and more than 5 minutes later someone opened the glass and said who rang the bell. I explained my daughter was there for an appointment and they asked for my id, insurance card and referral. I handed them the referral daughters pcp wrote on a presciption pad. I was snapped at and said that referral is no good. Call your pcp and tell them to fax a correct refer all our way and when you ar finished you can ring the bell again. Before I could get a question or remark out the window was slammed shut in my face. I have never been treated so poorly like dirt on a shoe. Iay never meet dr tucker nor I sure I want to if this is the staff he hires and finds acceptable.

Neil Tucker (Can't call this loser a Dr) "Worst Pediatric Gastroenterologist!!"

Wow, I don't know where to begin with guy . It's so sad to know that our tax dollars that go to support Broward Health end up paying for this low life's salary. I'll start by saying he does not know very much about first class pediatric doctoring as Broward Health claims their doctors practice. He is very unwilling to listen and thinks he knows it all. You can’t even share positive experiences you have had with your child since he will tell you that you are wrong. This guy physically harmed our precious child and never had the decency to every follow up to see how our child recovered from his negligence. He's is ruthless, uncaring and I cannot believe that he is still practicing in Florida. AHCA and the Florida Board of Medicine need to investigate this guy before he does more harm to innocent children patient’s. The bad reviews you read here and elsewhere are true and they don't even give you the entire picture of how bad this guy really is. You are better off with Voodoo and a bottle of Pepto-Bismol than coming face to face with this really bad guy who calls himself a doctor. Folks, I'm sorry if I sound so harsh, but there are no nice words for this guy and his practice. STAY AWAY and seek a Gastro somewhere else!
