Dr. Haber is not only very knowledgeable, he also has a wonderful bedside manner. Not only did he fully explain what was going on, he also gave treatment options with an explanation of the pros and cons associated with them to ensure that I made a well informed decision. I would and will continue to recommend Dr. Haber!

Broke my wrist (non-displace scaphoid fracture) and went to TOCA. Dr. Haber came to see me and based on xray said I need to do surgery asap. I was scared but I knew i have a low chance without surgery as well. I told him I rather not do it and he said okay but you will waste our time and mess with us in that way! Anyways, I canceled my surgery and saw another DR. I was in a cast and thanks gods I'm good. He is a good Dr, but he does not know how to behave with patients, maybe because too bus

Dr. Haber literally saved my hand. He was so good to me during the two plus years that I was in treatment. I cannot say enough positive things about this man. I would use him again in a second if I ever needed a hand surgeon.

Dr. Haber did surgery on both of my hands for severe arthritis. I had lived with the pain and suffering for about three years. It has been two wonderful and pain free years.

Very friendly and efficient office.

I cant believe this Dr. only got 2.4 out of 5 stars. My son had to have surgery on his hand and Dr. Haber did an amazing job!!! We made the job a bit difficult by not coming in sooner on the count of moving, establishing medical insurance, making a appt. etc. (about 3 months after accident) and my son had a tattoo in the same area that he wasn't sure he would be able to save. Dr. Haber made it new again, pain free, saved the tattoo and you can't even tell my son had surgery.

Amazing Dr
in Scottsdale, AZ |
I needed to see a physician urgently on a Monday morning because of a weekend fall injury. I called Mon. at 8:30 am & his office staff scheduled me for a 10:00 am apt. I was taken back within 10 minutes of completing my new patient paperwork. Dr. Haber explained to me exactly what his concerns were about my injury, the two possible directions that treatment may take based on add'l imaging & asked to see me again in 2 days. All in all, I found him very knowledgable, responsive & concerned.
