Patient Comments (14)
in Novi, MI |
When I fractured my shoulder in Nov. 2016, Dr. Bak was my immediate choice. I had a previous experience with Dr. Bak when he treated my elderly mother several years ago. Dr. Bak was kind, respectful, personable, and very knowledgeable. He put me at ease, was honest about my recovery, recommended a great PT when the time came. The entire staff, both Brighton and Novi, are easy to work with. I am very confident that I have received the best possible care.
in Ann Arbor, MI |
Dr. Bak is very knowledgeable and thorough in his explanation of my condition and potential care plan. He consistently recommends the least invasive treatments first, but offers some visibility on the likely road ahead He has a great way of focusing on my questions and devotes the necessary time to make me feel comfortable and confident in my decisions. I would highly recommend him!
in South Lyon, MI |
I had 2 large full thickness tears in my rotary cuff due to an accident. Dr Bak did a fantastic job repairing my injury and the Core Institute PT team helped me regain full use of my shoulder. I experienced very little pain during the whole post surgery process and am very thankfull to Dr Bak and the Core Team.
Pinckney, MI |
I would certainly recommend Dr. Bak and his office to family and friends. He explained everything about what was going to happen to fix my dislocated shoulder. Referred me to an excellent physical therapy facility close to my home. He is friendly, was not in a rush to get out of the exam room, and answered all my questions in a manner that I understood. The office was clean and all the associates were polite and friendly.
in Walled Lake, MI |
Dr. Bak is an excellent Dr. & surgeon. He takes the time to understand my concerns. He is straight forward and realistic about options. Out of state central dispatch appointment scheduling is maddening, however, the Novi staff is very accommodating and professional. An appointment a month away is well worth the wait to benefit from his expertise. I recommend him to everyone!
in Farmington, MI |
Dr Bak is extremely well versed in his profession. He has an excellent way of communicating the results of MRI and X-rays so that the patient can understand the problem. He takes the time to explain various options and puts the patient at ease with helping make an informed decision. Several years ago he performed surgery for a torn Achilles' tendon. The procedure was a complete success and his diagnosis was right on including the type of physical therapy needed. I highly recommend him.
in Brighton, MI |
Dr. Bak is an excellent surgeon. He takes time with you and wants to make sure your questions are answered. He listens to your concerns. The difficulty is that he is so good you may have to wait for a surgical date. My only complaint is with the CORE concept. Initially, your contact is all with people out of state. Once I got a local number to call, I felt more confident.
in Commerce Twp., MI |
Dr Bak is an extremely caring physician. He is an expert in his field and does an excellent job in repair and replacing shoulders. I would highly recommend, Dr Bak, to any of my friends.
Marshall, MI |
Knowledgeable doctor
Detroit, MI |
Dr. Bak refused to give me an MRI but he wanted to only give me injections without a diagnosis. I had been in pain for months. He was very cocky and rude. I refused injections because I knew it was more serious than that. I left CORE and went to Michigan Orthopedic Specialist in Southfield and within one month I had an MRI, diagnosis of Rotator Cuff problems and a bone spur, surgery and regained 98% use of my arm. So sorry I wasted so much time at CORE. Dr. Claybrooks sent me to him. smh
in Waterford, mi |
Awesome surgeon! Actually listens to you unlike a lot of docs. He does not rush you out of the office and takes time to go over everything with you.
in Brighton, MI |
Easy to talk eith, explains options besides surgery? Does not make patients wsit.
in Novi, MI |
Dr. Bak never reviewed prior history. wanted to start injections and refuse to write a narrative to OWCP without a $400.00 fee, he finally completed a form for $20.00 The patient has a traumatic knee injury. Dr. Bak said he could return to his job (not knowing the state had taken his CDL due to the injury) he had his PA & MA sign his name and wanted to submit form to OWCP. He was the worst doctor, for private insurance he may be okay for OWCP ...Don't bother you will be sorry I was.
in Walled Lake, MI |
Dr. Bak and his staff were outstanding in all areas: ease of scheduling appointment, warm and friendly welcome by all staff, his ability to listen and understand my injury and my wish to return to running/entering races again, his warm, professional, and reassuring manner when he visited me in pre-op, his visit and explanation of the success of my procedure to my friend who brought me to the surgery center (she is a former ICU nurse and thought he was excellent too!.)
