Dr. Talac and his staff are amazing. They are so kind and tentative. Dr. Talac takes his time to explain everything to you. I never felt rushed or like my questions annoyed him. In a world of doctors with crapy bedside manner Dr. Talac is a breath of fresh air! I have and will continue to recommend him!

Dr. Talac did back surgery on me in December of 2014. He did surgery on my L4 and L5. I didn't get any better, and he said he had all he could do for me after giving me an injection in my back. In December 2014, I was in so much pain that I made an appointment with a Neurosurgeon. She did an MRI and xrays. She said that she didn't know what Dr. Talac did to me, but I wasn't the first one of his patients to come her after having surgery by Dr. Talac.
