Patient Comments (5)
Bridgeville, PA |
Wonderful doctor. I have had migraines for years, with increasing intensity and frequency over time. Dr. Stakic is the first doctor to help me find a way to manage them. It took some time and trial and error with different medications, but my migraine frequency has decreased from 15 to 20 days per month to 1 or 2 days per month, and the intensity is completely manageable now. It has changed my life. No quick fix, but he took the time to work with me to figure out the best management plan.

I had a new patient appt. with Dr. Stakic. He spent 45 min with me reviewing my history and recommendations of treatment. He was kind and patient with my many questions. I was very happy with my care. Treating headaches is complex and he had a good understanding of the problems I have been facing and what needs to be done to lessen the severity of my headaches.

Dr. Stakic barely talked to me for 5 minutes before telling me that I was just a headache person and that I could try trial and error with medications. He told me to just pick one of the options, offering no insight other than some side effects for each. I made it clear that I was uncomfortable picking one for myself and that I was worried about side effects being worse than my actual migraines, to which his response was there is no free lunch. I ended up reluctantly picking a seizure medici

I've been seeing Dr. Stakic for over 4 years now. Though he sometimes runs behind (as many of the doctors in the headache center do), when you get to see him he always takes his time with you. He reviews your treatment options thoroughly, and thinks carefully about what might be best. He does a great job sharing the decision making with the patient. He explains things very well, and is very compassionate. He has really helped bring my migraines under better control.

While presenting with an extremely difficult case, Dr. Dr Stakic has proved to be an excellent diagnostician. His interpersonal skills were excellent, he exhibited in A large amount of empathy when dealing with my situation. I had headaches and vertigo for months, and he contacted every medical professional he knew and more in order to arrive at an appropriate diagnosis. His impressions proved to be right, and he aided in saving my life.
