Kaitlyn (Dukes) Tucker is a certified Physician Assistant that joined Atlanta Diabetes Associates in 2012. She completed her Physician Assistant training at Mercer University in Atlanta, where she received a Masters Degree in Medical Science. Prior to that Kaitlyn did her undergraduate training at the University of Georgia.
Kaitlyn sees primarily patients with Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes but also sees a wide variety of general endocrinology patients as well (including thyroid, adrenal, pituitary, osteoporosis).
She first became interested in endocrinology in 2007, while volunteering for Camp Kudzu, a camp for children with Type I diabetes, which she still remains an active volunteer. While she sees a wide range of ages of patients, teenagers transitioning from pediatric care and young adults hold a special place in her heart!
