Doctor Wallach performed a micro disectomy on my back L5 and L5. I was in so much pain I could hardly walk or sleep. He did an excellent job, however he was honest in telling me that there was a five percent of reherniation. Dr. Wallach is a great guy and I highly recommend him without caveat. I’m pain free and back on the tennis courts after 5 months.

Dr. Wallach came highly recommended to me. With his knowledge and highly skilled surgical techniques, he performed a successful cervical spine fusion. From the very first visit I was made to feel involved in the decision to operate or not. He was forthright, caring, patient and kind. He went over all the x-rays with me explaining what was causing the pain. . . this way, I could see for myself what was happening to my spine. He demonstrated how the spine functioned - very helpful. Thank you.

Extremely satisfied with the outcome of my surgery (spinal fusion). After being in pain for many month I was basically pain free immediately after surgery. Highly recommend Dr. Wallach, incredibly skilled (and caring) Orthopedic Surgeon!

I was seen by Dr Wallach after it was discovered that I had 3 compressed discs in my spine. Quality of life was low. Dr Wallach & Karess were caring, reassuring and made sure my needs were taken care of. My pain relief & mobility improved in recovery right after surgery. I am so glad my doctor recommended him to me vs where I was going to go. I continue to rave about him to everyone I know!

Dr. Wallach is a wonderful and highly skilled doctor that has given me my life back. It's really hard living with pain on a daily basis and I can't thank him enough for everything he's done for me. I put my total trust in him and he never let me down. It's not worth living in pain--life is short and meant to be enjoyed:)

After trying all other alternatives to ease my spinal stenosis pain I went to Dr. Wallach. He was very patient in listening to my complaints and in explaining the surgery process. I was not a good patient and his bedside manner was very comforting. Everything went as he had explained and I am now mobile after years of considerable pain..

When Dr Wallach saw the results of my MRI, he immediately contacted me by phone and expedited arrangements for surgery to relieve my pain and restore my life. In less than a week, I was home functioning normally without pain. I have felt no pain since! In less than a week I was doing household chores and exercising in our fitness room. Then, in less than three weeks, I was using our exercise equipment and hiking in the nearby woods. I cannot overstate my appreciation to this superb surgeon.

I have found Dr. ?Wallach to be the most self-righteous, condescending doctor I've ever dealt with. Bar none.

The positive impact Dr. Corey Wallach has made in my quality of life as a result of his medical insight and treatment is quite frankly nothing short of miraculous. The timing of what occurred above was just weeks before Christmas. Dr. Wallach saw me quickly and viewed first-hand how debilitating the herniated disc was to my basic functions of eating, sleeping (zero walking).Dr. Wallach had made personal plans just prior to Christmas but put ALL that on hold and operated 2 days prior to Xmas.

I highly recommend Dr. Corey Wallach for conservative Spine care as well as Spine surgery. As a recently retired healthcare professional, my expectations and standards are very high. Dr. Wallach exceeds those expectations. Dr Wallach excels in patient education and involving the patient in their plan of care. I had a lumbar fusion 6 weeks ago and I feel better than I have in 5-6 yrs. I have gotten back the quality of my life.

My surgery was set for the 19 May, and after about five hours I was in recovery. I had a fusion of three vertebrae, a laminectomy and a decomposition of two other vertebrae. After three days in the hospital, I went to a rehabilitation facility for three weeks where I learned once again how to climb stairs and walk safely. I am now home and walking my dog daily with no pain in either my legs or back. I give Doctor Wallach all the credit for this fact and would highly recommend him to anybody

Dr Wallach is amazing - very thorough, calculated and compassionate. You can see in his eyes and expressions that he's really trying to understand YOUR circumstances and make the very best medical decision for you for the short and long term. And he's just a pleasure to talk to and be around. Felt comfortable from the very first time we met and we had seen another physician and just didn't get that feeling.

Dr Corey Wallach and Rebecca ( his PA ) are my heroes. My experience was incredible from the beginning to the end. Dr Wallach and Rebecca were extremely professional and provided me with all the confidence, knowledge and calmness I needed. I had a herniated disk and was in severe pain for 8 months. My injury occurred doing crossfit. At this stage, my pain has decreased by 95% and I am back to having a full life. While needing surgery is never a good situation, I highly RECO
