  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I went to dr hack with severe stomach pain .I explained I had gone to mayo and had colonoscopy etc..he ran a few tests which showed high crp and other abnormalities but stated I had ibs and to see a dietician. No follow up! No stool test ordered even though I explained I had mucous coming out of rectum and so much pain that I couldn't work. I was approved ssdi snd struggled for a long time until a different dr ordered stool testing which showed c.diff, many yeasts and high wbc. So I give hack f..akso he would just stare at me when I asked questions.

Hack is a Quack

Keeps changing locations, doesn't let pacients know where he is going. For over 2 years I saw him the turnover in his office help was ridiclous! He pulled up stakes in Las Vegas, no one knows where he went.

Awful!

I saw Dr. Hack when he was practicing in Wisconsin. I came in with severe cramping and diarrhea. He immediately wanted to do a colonoscopy. After the colonoscopy, everything was deemed to be normal and he labeled me as having IBS and gave me some medicene for cramping. No instructions for follow up whatsoever. I came back to let him know the cramping medicene wasn't working for me and he said "Well, what do you suggest?" I felt helpless and six months later I got up the nerve to try a a new doctor. The first thing they did was an x-ray of my stomach and found severe constipation!!! It seems to me that this should have been the first thing Dr. Hack should have looked at. It is extremely frustrating to me that this could not have been found earlier. I am still dealing with the ramifications of this problem today. AVOID Dr. Hack!!!
