in Weedsport, NY |
Dr. Tallarico performed a 10 level spinal fusion and straightened my deformities from scoliosis three weeks ago, and I have able to walk without the pain in my legs and back since I got out of bed the day after surgery. I could not be happier with Dr. Tallarico and Upstate Hospital for all of the wonderful care that I received. The Dr. is very informative and he is direct and will spend all of the time that you need when he explains the procedure that you need.

Had an ACDF w Dr. Tallerico, what a wonderful surgeon, several medical professionals in this area all said I scored getting a surgeon of the caliber of Dr. Tallerico. Surgery came out wonderful, bedside manors I have never seen before. He had my family informed no less than 3 times during the procedure, he even announced to my family the first incision. Great Dr, Upstate had great staff. Downside, which is an "Upstate" thing. Very poor treatment once you leave.
