Pediatrician Wendy Tuccille, MD, says it was her high school biology teacher who inspired her to go into pediatrics. She loves having a career that allows her to connect with and help children every day.
Dr. Tuccille earned her medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. She completed her residency at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center in Bronx, New York.
Being part of a team that strives for excellence in care is important to Dr. Tuccille. It's why she chose Phoenix Children's, one of the top 10 pediatric hospitals in the U.S. Her patients and their families also value the level of care she provides, consistently voting her among the best pediatricians in the Verde Valley.
She works closely with parents to provide the best care possible. "Parents are a vital part of care," she says.
In her free time, Dr. Tuccille enjoys exercise, reading and gardening.
