Excellent ! Long wait time but that is because he is the best in the area. As a breast cancer patient, I trusted him. He respects his patients views and surgical decisions in collaboration with his expertise. People come from hours away because he is well respected and has a depth of experience/

My OB/GYN recommended Dr. Habal to me several years ago and I have been going to him yearly since then. He is kind, patient, knowledgeable and empathetic. He has successfully treated a couple of my friends for breast cancer. When you have an appointment, you need to be prepared to wait, but I don't mind. There's a good reason for this. He is a very much in demand physician and he takes his time with his patients. He will answer all your questions, which is more than most doctors do these days.
1). Doesn't schedule appts. 2). At my last visit, I walked-out after waiting for over an hour. Today, I actually saw him, but spent OVER 2.5 hours waiting. Because I had not eaten anything since 7:00 AM (I had an earlier doctor's appointment that included another 2 hour wait on the same day). I asked if I could briefly leave the office and was told that if I left, I would be rescheduled to the "back of the line." 3). I've been much more impressed with the doctors in my "Nonmedical School-Town"

Appears friendly enough but treats you like nothing more than just the next patient he needs to hurry in and out. Never bothered to read my chart which included very important details about my treatment. He then made a major misdiagnosis. Can't warn fellow patients enough to stay away from this man.
