Patient Stories

Dr. Dagam is known by medical professionals for his expert surgical skill, and by patients for his empathy, compassion and personality.

Let our patients tell our story of expertise, compassion and care.

Allen Barron

Allen Barron suffered from back and neck pain from a pinched nerve for years. Before coming to Dr. Dagam, he was unable to find the cause and a cure. Allen had a lumbar fusion surgery, and is happy to report that he is now “98% pain free” after Dr. Dagam’s care.

Cathie Engel

After suffering from years of lower back pain, Cathie came to Dr. Dagam and received a full medical plan to use a minimally invasive surgery to relieve the pain. Cathie is now back to her normal life – going to the gym and playing with her grandkids. Learn more about her story today.

LauraLee Dachel

LauraLee was recommended by her family doctor to visit Dr. Dagam for a diagnosis. After consultations, Dr. Dagam was able to diagnose LauraLee with vertigo and provide a non-surgical solution along with physical therapy and pain management for relief. Dr. Dagam knows that surgery is not for everyone – and LauraLee’s story proves that.

Tim Radke

Dr. Dagam gave Tim Radke multiple options to address his epilepsy, including brain surgery. Through close consulting and advanced technology, Dr. Dagam was able to cure Tim’s epilepsy and conduct a back surgery years later to relieve his back pain as well.

We listen and we empathize.

Doreen Lackowski

Practice Manager

I’m Doreen – Practice Manager for Dagam Neurosurgery. I joined Dr Dagam’s team in 2013 with 15 years of medical office experience. My commitment to Dagam Neurosurgery is to make sure all of our patients and their families experience the best care possible. What I love most about my job is getting to know we as a team made a positive difference in someone’s life! In my spare time I enjoy reading, baking, traveling, watching movies, listening to music and spending time with family and friends.

Sonia Moore

Medical Record Specialist

My name is Sonia and I have been the Medical Records Specialist at Dagam Neurosurgery for 5 years. I provide, obtain and prepare records for patient charts, attorneys and other providers involved in the patients care. What I like most about my job is my coworkers. Working well together allows our office to run smoothly and provide the best care possible to our patients, that’s what I’m passionate about. Outside of work, I enjoy cheering on the Brewers, Bucks and the Packers - especially going to the games with my family and friends. As time allows, I also enjoy painting ceramics.

Boe Boedecker

Physician Assistant

I'm Beau Boedecker, Physician Assistant with Dr. Dagam since graduating from Midwestern University in 2010. What I like most about my role is patient care — from their first consultation evaluation to all of their follow-through. This includes being in surgery alongside Dr. Dagam. In my spare time, I enjoy a hodgepodge of astrophysics, baseball, traveling the world with my wife and sipping a good cup of coffee.

Cathy Pabich

Surgical Coordinator

My name is Cathy and for the past 4 years I have been Dr. Dagam’s Surgical Coordinator. I do my best to make the surgery scheduling process as easy as possible for all our patients, every step of the way. What I love most about my job is knowing that the outcome of a patient’s surgery helped improve their quality of life, which makes dealing with insurance companies for procedure authorizations all worth it! In my spare time I enjoy being with my family, shopping and watching the History channel and Food Network.  

Tina Spritka

Lead Medical Receptionist

My name is Tina and I am the Lead Medical Receptionist celebrating 5 years with Dr. Dagam and his team. After many years of experience in a Neurosurgical clinic, what I enjoy most is knowing that I make a difference in the day-to-day routine of our practice from triaging phone calls to scheduling appointments. In my spare time I enjoy being outside gardening and traveling with my husband.
