This is a doctor who will listen, who truly cares about his patients, takes time to explain everything in detail in which the patient understands and has the best bedside manner I have ever encountered! The staff is very helpful and caring. I will soon get an operation and I trust Dr. Talac wholeheartedly.

Thankful and Hopeful show details Thankful and Hopeful
by Wendy on Sep 30th, 2015

My husband was (for a lack of a better word) jerked around by a few other doctors for years when it came to helping him with his back issues and none of them helped. A co-worker of my husband's referred him to Dr. Talac after her surgeries with him. So we made an appointment Dr.Talac explained in detail all of my husband's issues and answered all questions without making him feel rushed he walked out feeling at ease about having his much needed surgery. My husband had his surgery almost a week ago and so far so good I can't thank Dr. Talac and his staff (at his Richmond office) enough for all they have done. Hopefully my husband will get the mobility and pain relief he has so needed after recovery and therapy are over.

He has been a wonderful doctor to me. He shows concerns and takes the time to make sure I understand what's going on what out next steps are and so on and so forth. I was having issues with the doctors office who referred me and he actually asked for the phone and got after them for dropping the ball in providing him the necessary dics/paper they were to provide for my first visit. I like him very much and feel comfortable in his care.

Wow, a spine surgeon who actually spent time with me. He worked me in to be seen right away. I had to wait for about 20 minutes (only reason he doesn't get 5 stars on that one). He spent a LONG time with me in my exam going over and explaining to me why I hurt. He actually talked me OUT of surgery. So great.

This guy is unbelievable. He is friendly and made my back pain go away in 2 weeks. He makes you feel like that you really matter.

by Floyd L. on May 23rd, 2014

Dr Talac is an excecellent Dr. After having failed procedures in Jackson and Vanderbilt. He is the only Dr that found the problem and assured that he could help. Finally got approved for surgery after a year and a half of lower back pain due to ruptured disc. After having the surgery I woke up with the pain gone. Dr Talac has given me my quality of life back. I am forever grateful to him. I highly recommend this wonderful Dr.

by V Walker on Apr 10th, 2014

This was my first visit and was a work-in. Treated with nothng but kindness, and professional staff. I was pleased with my office visit with Dr Talac. I felt assured he would be there if I needed him to help me if my condition worsens. I have worked in nursing for appx 50 year and I understand time frame between Dr and patient, and he spent time to answer and explain my condition and give time to answer any questions my husband or I had to ask. I would and have already called and recommended him. Thanks Dr Talac for being such a compassionate doctor in such a rushed world we live in today.

best dr ever show details best dr ever
by Gloria Beth Ferguson on Jan 24th, 2014

I had been in severe pain for 3 yrs. I was first sent to a Dr that gave me spinal blocks. It did not help at all. And this Dr missed inserting the needle once. I was balling. It hurt so much. Then I found Dr Talac. We had trouble w insurance (of course) and Dr T did all he could to work that out. I was actually on the table ready for surgery when I was told no the insurance will not cover it. Again I was beside myself. The surgery went on but not the full surgery I needed. Then after 4 mts still in pain the ins did pay for surgery to repair collapsed discs. After this surgery I have had no more pain. Cept for arthritis in my back which does cause a lot o pain but not like what I had for 3 yrs. When I was on the table ready for the second surgery Dr Talac came in and said he couldn't do the surgery because the ac had gone out in operating room. So again it was put off til next day. I think Dr T is a great Dr and person. He did all he could for me and I finally was able to get on w my life. I wish him and his wife all the best and thank you so much

Cancelled again!!! show details Cancelled again!!!
May 31st, 2013

Twice I was schedule for surgery and twice my surgery was cancelled due to Talac calling it off. The nurse told me he had a plane to catch and it concerned me more that he planned my surgery on a day he was leaving town! This recent surgery is a revision of the previous surgery gone wrong! You are lucky if you can get answers out of him because he will not stay in the room long enough to address concerns you may have. Too busy for that! Not happy with him and my back has not been right since he told me, " I take care of you". Have not seen any results of that yet! Do not go to this man for surgery, unless you like for people to waste your time!
