Description

With a philosophy for patient-driven health care, Dr. Kirk Tucker, MD, with Adena Internal Medicine – Franklin Clinic in Chillicothe, Ohio, focuses on providing patients with all their options in treatment and helping them find one that fits best their lifestyle.  Dr. Tucker has been an internal medicine physician with Adena Internal Medicine – Franklin Clinic for the past nine years, working primarily with patients outside the hospital.  In his primary care practice, some of the common illnesses Dr. Tucker helps care for include diabetes, chronic blood pressure, cholesterol problems, asthma, emphysema, chronic kidney and heart disease.

Dr. Tucker feels he is different from other primary care physicians because of a personal experience he had with a chronic disease.  A personal diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes had a significant impact on how Dr. Tucker treats his patients and how he delivers information that could have a shocking impact on his patients.  Using this experience, Dr. Tucker seeks to impart comfort to his patients by helping them understand that a chronic disease can be managed and that a full and active life is attainable.

In his off time, Dr. Tucker enjoys spending time outdoors with his three sons and enjoys classic cars.
