Wait time was horrible. Spoke to people who were regulars who have waited on average 3 hours to be seen by the doctor because of the poor scheduling system used by this office. I waited 2 hours as a new patient so i guess i was fortunate. The doctor was short and to the point. Have one diagnosis before realizing the issue i had was the result of the other issue which I’d told to PA and was in both my charts. He seems very laid back and not treating anything with urgency. He is a knowledgeable doctor, but after this issue is resolved I will not be coming back.

Receptionist was very friendly and patient. W. Lackey was professional, personable, and friendly. I was misdiagnosed by urgent care and he told me immediately (so relieved!!!!!) and later showed me my xray and pointed out why. He was recommended to me and I would recommend him as well. Thank you!

The wait time was over an hour .. i was sent for an xray before seeing the doctor which i found weird and of note, the receptionist, despite being nice and helpful, she was very loud even when she was talking about confidential information like complaints, diagnosis, results and prescription.

Dr. Lackey himself is very nice, takes his time, listens, and from what I understand from other patients, is a fine surgeon. The biggest drawback to seeing him is the extremely lengthy wait times.

I've had a lot of lousy experiences with doctors, so I always go into a first appointment with a degree of wariness. Dr. Lackey was great from the first moment. He listened, asked good questions, pulled up images on the computer to help me get a sense of what's happening with my shoulder, answered my questions and was totally reassuring.

Having not attended to my injuries in a long time, I found the refreshing open conversation and thoroughly informative session to be the most beneficial visit I have had with a medical professional in a long time! He addressed every concern large and small without being dismissive; maintained a pleasant and plain-spoken demeanor, and made sure I had peace of mind before I left. His staff in the W 26th office was cordial, efficient; office clean. Go to him. He knows what he's talking about. Highly recommended!

Awesome, he knew his profession and took his time with me. I am a female athlete who is a serious lifter and he was very knowledgeable about athletes and my shoulder injury. He has excellent bed side manners and was very receptive. He is now officially my orthopedic doctor. I am keeping him for sure.

Dr. Lackey is extremely nice and thorough in his answers and explanations. I've been having lower back issues since the beginning of June and seeing him was the first time I had answers and a plan for recovery. He was also very sympathetic to my condition and gave me great advice alongside a plan to move forward. My appointment was located at the 134 West 26th Street office, but none of his staff was there at the front desk to help, which was odd. I also waited 40 minutes, but Dr. Lackey came out and apologized himself. If you are willing to wait at times he's a great doctor.

9am appointment, 9:30 XRays, in patient room at 11, seen by the doctor at 11:30, out by 12... you do the math. All of this was because I pushed to be seen, to the point where when I was in the private room and heard a patient being seen who came in TWO HOURS after me, I spoke up... again. Bedside manner was okay. I am a nurse for a great hospital on the UES so I am very understanding but this was unacceptable. Never again. Don't waste your time... literally.
