Dr Hakert was extremely helpful. He took great care of me and explained everything in detail so that I understood everything. His medical assistant is wonderful, caring and returns my calls very quickly. I would definitely recommend Dr Hakert.

Wasn't taken seriously by Dr Hackert. Finally had the sense to try another doc after 4+ appointments. Went on to be diagnosed with ulceractions in my terminal ileum which are highly indicative of Crohns. I'm under 30. There are far better doctors in the DHAT network.

Dr. Hakert and the entire staff at Old Town Endoscopy are just great. Without exception, they're all super-friendly, comforting, and really make the experience as pleasant as possible. The nursing staff at Old Town are especially nice people.
