    I had two bad disks in my neck that were causing some pinched nerves in my right shoulder. Dr. Tack and his staff worked with our insurance to get a double disk replacement instead of the usual fusion for someone my age. The surgery went well, went home without a neck brace, and never had to take the prescribed pain meds. Within a week I was out walking and building up strength. Within four weeks any small little related pains were gone, and within six weeks back to physical job unrestricted.

    I was lucky to have gone outside of the North Shore system to have my back operated on by this fine Dr. My Dr. at NS refused to believe that my continued and worsening pain was to due to the 2 surgeries he did on my spine.After MRIsCTs& Xrays-he still insisted he was right.I went to Tack with the same films&he immediately saw the problem&I was operated on. From the 1st 2 surgeries,pieces were everywhere.DrTack not only fixed my back,he also found a postionous NS piece embedded in me,saving me.

    Dr. does a great job. My surgery was a good experience and I would highly recommend Dr. Tack. He really know his job. Everything went very smooth and not at all stressful.

    I just experienced the scariest surgery of my life-had to have a spinal fusion for my lower back. Surgery was my last resort but I couldn't live with the constant pain in my lower back and legs. I am 3 months post surgery & I feel great! It was a tough recovery-but totally worth it! The leg pain has been gone since day 1 post surgery! And, at 8-10 weeks post surgery, I began to feel "normal" again. Still working on stamina & leg strength, but I am free of the horrible, constant pain. Thanks, Dr.

    Worst Doctors experience ever. Doctor walked into the room like he was the greatest thing on earth, then didn't talk, I discussed what was wrong he just shook his had and then said lets do a MRI maybe that will tell us something then walked out without even a nice to meet you. I would avoid Dr Tack. Also the Nurse had nothing to say wouldnt look you in the eyes. The following day the MRI was denied and all they did was call us and told us to basically figure it out for ourselves.
