Finding quality medical care as well as a caring medical physician who will both listen to you and advise you of your treatment options, do not have to be mutually exclusive. At the Springfield-Burke Family Practice, we look forward to creating a long and healthy relationship with you.

We are a small practice that focuses on individualized and preventative care. Our doctors are trained to treat patients of all ages - from newborns to senior citizens. Let us know how we can assist you with everything from routine preventative care, such as physical exams, vision or hearing screening, and acute care.

As a family physician, Dr. Alton Tucker knows that the better informed our patients are, the better we can be of service to you. That is why if you have a question or concern and call our office, you always will get a call back. Our doctor and staff thank you and appreciate your trust in our care for you and your family.

To The Patients of Huntsman Medical Center:

It is with regret that we announce the separation of Dr Tucker and Dr Nekoba.  Effective July 1, 2009, they will no longer be in partnership.  Dr. Tucker will carry on as Springfield/Burke Family Practice Corporation and Dr. Nekoba has chosen to join Loudoun Medical Group (LMG). Initially, both physicians will continue to see patients at the current location.

The physicians are working diligently to make this transition seamless for their patients.  The one change that needs your attention is the change of primary physician with your insurance company. You will no longer be able to see Dr. Tucker and Dr. Nekoba interchangeably. Please select one of the physicians and contact your insurance carrier immediately. Delaying this choice will require referrals for some office visits.
For those patients choosing to continue with Dr. Nekoba, you will be asked to sign a form (one time only) that indicates your desire to remain with Dr. Nekoba. This will also serve as a record release to have your records transferred to Dr. Nekoba. You may stop by the office to take care of this form at your convenience although we do request that this is done prior to any office visits. Dr Nekoba will be continuing to practice at the current office location.

Dr Tucker has chosen to move his practice to a new location beginning September 1, 2009. His new office will be located just 5 miles from the current location. The new address is 8991 Cotswold Drive, Burke VA  22015. His phone and fax number will remain unchanged.

Both physicians look forward to continuing their patient relationships and will continue the medical care that you have come to know. If you have any questions regarding this transition, please feel free to talk with your doctor.

Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation.

Sincerely,
Alton Tucker, MD
Jeffrey Nekoba, MD
