Hannibal Regional Medical Group is excited to welcome Dr. James Tucker to their family medicine team.

James Tucker, DO, completed his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine training at A.T. Still University in Kirksville after serving with honors in the United States Army. He completed his Family and Community Medicine Residency at the University of Missouri Columbia and has come back to his home area to establish his practice. Hannibal Regional Medical Group is happy to have Tucker join the rest of the family medicine team as we work to guide the community to better.

During his childhood, Tucker often accompanied his father, Dr. Mark Tucker, to his medical office which developed his lifelong passion of caring for others.

Tucker said, “I remember going into the office with my father and checking on patients and helping out when I could. People often told me they wanted me to come back and provide medical care in the area and that strong sense of community has always stuck with me.”

Tucker is focused on engaging his patients with their preventative health.

“I strive to involve my patients in their medical decision making process. I want to make sure they understand their healthcare decisions so they know why it’s important to maintaining or improving their life,” Tucker said.

Tucker is now seeing patients alongside the rest of Hannibal Regional Medical Group’s family medicine team in Hannibal. To schedule an appointment call 573-629-3500.
