Corinne N. Tuckey-Larus, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.

Dr. Tuckey-Larus hails from Norristown, Pennsylvania, just outside of Philadelphia, PA. She was educated in Philadelphia through college and medical school. She now lives in Midlothian, Virginia with her native Virginia husband, Steven. They are parents of three children who have proudly entered three different prestigious schools.

Once I rode horses, and I look forward to one day enjoying my horses again. I danced for over 20 years, having to give those endeavours a rest because of schooling. I am an avid outdoor enthusiast; I used to be a runner and a biker. I unfortunately was injured by a motorist while running and have since focused my attention to other athletic endeavours.

Dr. Tuckey-Larus has been named one of America’s Top Obstetricians and Gynecologists by the Consumer’s Research Council of America.

Congratulations to Dr. Corinne Tuckey-Larus who received an Honorable Mention for being voted the “Best Bedside Manner” in the 2013 Our Healthmagazine!

This month, Dr. Tuckey-Larus will be presenting at the Women’s Business Council Coffee Break on a Women’s Heart Health panel. The event is on February 25th from 7:30-9:00 AM at Thunderbolt Indoor Karting in Richmond, VA. Registration is necessary. To learn more, click here.
