I've visited her office many times for my now 2 year old and I just love her and her staff very professional and kid friendly.

I went to her a few years ago. She wasn't willing to file the paperwork to fix my nose properly - so nothing else was done. She was unconcerned about serious problems. Claimed I didn't have sinus infections or polyps (which doesn't match my record from elsewhere). Skip ahead a few years and I now have tooth roots going all the way to the nasal cavities. Turns out if you don't treat these things, it eats your bone. Tooth pain constantly. Don't trust this doctor with your care.

Dr Habenict is the most honest Doc I know. Great bedside manner and is fixing my nose soon.

0 stars! My son had a CT scan that shows unilateral choanal atresia. CT said his one sinus blocked by bone.I called office this morn they told us that we did not need to bring anything. I was unable to go, as the appt. was made on short notice due to our Pediatrician saying this needed to be fast tracked,I had to work. My son and his father got there she wanted a copy of the ct scan disc.Since we didn't have it she said there was nothing wrong with our son, sent away and told to clean better!WOW
