Patient Comments (6)
in Watervliet, NY |
Dr. Kaback is an Orthopedic Surgeon, specializing in injuries to the elbow. Dr. Kaback is very professional, has a good attitude and is a likeable person. I think Dr. Kaback did a great job repairing my elbow injury, (torn triceps tendon), and based on my experience, I would give him top honors as a surgeon. Although I had a full cast on my arm for a month after surgery, my injury was pretty much pain free, immediately after the surgery as well as to this day, two and a half months later.

The man should not be practicing medicine - period !!!

Dr. Kaback operated on my husbands shoulder, not once but twice. He missed the fact that my husband had much more than a torn rotator. We ended up at the Bone and joint center for a third surgery. If we knew then what we know now, we would have gone to Dr. Das from the beginning. Get a second opinion people and save yourself the heartache and 18 months of agony.

We are so thankful that Dr. Kaback performed surgery, under extremely difficult circumstances, on our Aunt. Beyond his remarkable surgical skills, Dr. Kaback's upbeat personality reassured both the nervous patient and family members - prior to and after surgery. His Physician's Assistant, Nomi Klein, is a gentle, kind and compassionate professional. Her medical skills and understanding of patient needs are amazing. Both are very adept at explaining things, listening and answering everything.

I had rotator cuff surgery by Dr. Kaback on April 12 and had virtually no pain after 2 days. By three months I am as good as new. Not only a great surgeon, but he has a great bedside manner, and a good sense of humor.
in Cohoes, NY |
I'd recommend him to anyone! Took time to hear my concerns and opinions and worked with me to pick a surgical option we both agreed on. He went above and beyond to research my unusual issue. I couldn't be more pleased!
