Dr Tackey is rude and does not care about his patients. Unfortunately i learned this the hard way, so im hoping my review will help someone out there avoid the pain of dealing with Dr Tacky.

Didn't introduce himself when entered the room...(didn't know he was the Dr). Very unfriendly and almost rude.... Shoots off questions and doesn't seem interested in your answers. I would never recommend anyone to him and I won't be going back...

Only problem is he doesn't spend enough time with patient. He needs to smile when coming into room. He knows what he's talking about and take very good care of you in an emergency
