13/11/13 5 4 5 5 Dr. Hacker makes you feel like he cares from the moment he meets you. He is honest, does not waste your time, and is a very talented doctor. Two co-workers recommended him to me and I have since recommended him to others. He helped me with my broken elbow and I went back to him for help with my knee injury. He has a conservative approach to surgery but is also the chief of orthopedic surgery at two major hospitals. I would recommend him to ANYONE!

17/10/13 5 3 3 3 I have not seen this doctor yet but upon calling his office I was introduced to a lady named Megan who answered the phone. She is abrasive to say the least! When you call ask for Carmen she is a very nice and caring person, she will help you with what you need. I was hoping to get into see the doctor soon (since I can't put weight on my knee) so she found a spot for me and then went so far as to have a nurse call me to help with how I should care for it until my appointment.  Respond

21/08/13 5 5 5 5 Wow. I have never met such a caring and compassionate physician. He invested himself into my concerns, never rushed my appointments, and has me back to 100%. I send him all my friends and family. I would never see another orthopedist anywhere. Dr. Hacker has my complete trust.

27/08/12 3 5 4 5 Scott did a total knee replacement on a very damaged knee 5 years ago. The results were fantastic, far exceeding my expectations. Recovery was fast, range of motion great, no residual pain. Just fantastic. I was 55 at the time.  Respond

23/05/06 4 5 5 Dr. Hacker is a wonderful doctor, I am not so sure about his receptionist. She is not very efficient. I have had problems being scheduled for surgery, she just does not seem on the ball.  Respond
