MEET OUR PROVIDERS

ANGELA RUCKER | MSN, APRN, FNP-C
"Where do I even begin when I talk about my career at Dycus-Camp Clinic?," says D. Scott Dycus, DO. "My father Dr. David Dycus, started this clinic in 1962. My first memory of wanting to join my father as a fellow physician came when I was a young child in second grade. I spent my childhood years running up and down the halls of the clinic observing my father. "
A lifelong resident of Moore, Dr. Dycus graduated from the OSU School of Medicine in Tulsa and then joined his father in practice in 1983. This clinic is where he started his career and where he plans to finish it.
"My father always told me 'If you take care of the patients... the patients will take care of you.' I stand by his motto and we look forward to taking care of our patients medical needs."
Angela Rucker has always had a heart for taking care of people. She learned early on that she most enjoys caring for the older generation.
“My mother worked as a nurse at a nursing home when I was growing up. Every day after school the bus dropped me and my sister off there. I loved doing activities with the residents, talking with them, helping them with dinner,” said Angela. By the time she was 14 years old, Angela had earned her Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) license and worked the night shift at an assisted living facility.
Angela went on to get her Registered Nurse (RN) degree and started managing and directing nursing homes. Even as she was doing that, she knew she wanted to go a step further and be able to manage her patients’ care. This led her back to school and she earned her family nurse practitioner degree.
“When I achieved my nurse practitioner license, I knew geriatrics was where I wanted to be. I treat every patient with the utmost respect. I strive to care for them the same way I would want a provider to care for my parents and grandparents,” says Angela.
Angela is excited to focus on senior primary care. She looks forward to keeping her patients informed about their health so they understand and then avoid or overcome health challenges. She enjoys being an advocate for her patients – making sure they receive the proper medications at the lowest cost.
“I am excited that I will have the opportunity to get to know the geriatric population of Oklahoma and ensure they have the very best care I can possibly give them.”
