I broke my wrist 21/2 months ago & went to Dr. Tacke for a consultation, after taking x rays he recommended wrist surgery. It's been 4 weeks since surgery & I just had my 4 week follow up today. Short wait time! Staff are pleasant! Dr. Tacke showed me my new wrist x rays, my wrist bones look perfect & are healing well! Dr. Tacke is very thorough, he explains everything & answers all questions, he is very understanding, he is very professional and an excellent surgeon. I highly recommend him!
