I was very nervous to see a doctor about my continuous back pain Dr Hackbarth went above and beyond to help me and insure that I was taken care of. I'm very grateful for his attention and care.

Dr. Hackbarth us the absolute best. I have had to have injections for neck, back, knees and hips for many years. I dreaded the shots so much I would get sick at my stomach at injection time. Dr. Hackbarth uses ultra sound to guide the needle and the shots are almost painless. He has worked very hard to control my pain without filling me full of pain pills. His nurse, Angie, is great, also. She always returns calls or answers messages. Scheduling is good and rarely do I miss my time by more than 5 minutes. The staff in Lufkin and Tyler are efficient and timely, and always pleasant. I recommend him highly, and he is the 3rd doctor of a hundred or so I have recommended.

I met Dr. Hackbarth in 2013. At that time I could barely walk and most of the time I was in a wheelchair or I would try walking with a cane. I was in a horrific accident in 2010. In fact when I first met Dr. Hackbarth he was very honest and upfront with me. He was shocked by the lack of care I wasn't receiving from other specialists. He made no guarantees, but he also said "I promise I will do everything within my power to help you. Because God is truly the only one who knows the complete extent of all the trauma and severe pain you've been dealing with for the last 3 years. Well after many, many, many different procedures. I mean I had so many, some helped a little & sometimes they didn't help at all. That's not Dr. Hackbarth's fault. He tried! Well we made it to 2016 and you know what Dr. Hackbarth NEVER-EVER Gave Up on trying to help me!! I am truly Thankful I was finally referred to a caring, determined, honest and a doctor that has personally suffered a similar pain & understands exactly how his patients feel. I truly don't understand when I hear or read negative remarks regarding Dr. Hackbarth. I promise my heart goes out to you. I know being in pain all the time is truly unexplainable. I truly hope you find some relief soon. I have & always will believed in Dr. Hackbarth's ability to help me. Even if it ever means sending me to another doctor. I hope not, but we go on.
