He is right to the point. HE CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE He saved mine I was a heart attack with a 90%/75% blockage waiting to happen. He sent me the best doctors in the world. I have had triple bypass surgery and never had a heart attack thanks to the quick actions of this doctor.

Have been patient of Dr. Hastings for 30 years. He has great knowledge of any concern and treatment I have ever needed.

Dr. Hastings has been our family doctor since 1990. He does not have the greatest personality on the face of the earth, but he is to the point, and ALWAYS wants the best outcome for patients. If you are looking large facility, with several doctors that will just write you a script, and send you on your way, then don't go to Dr. Hastings. He will give it to you straight!

I have been a patient of Dr. Hastings for about 15-20 years now and have always been pleased with the level of care I have received. He takes his time with his patients, is willing to listen and answer questions, is willing to discuss alternative treatments to just take this pill. He is very down to earth. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Hastings to anyone.

Dr. Hastings is very thorough in every aspect of his practice. I have gone to him for over 20 years and have never been unhappy with any service he or his staff have provided.

Dr Hastings is a very good doctor. He has called me at 8 pm at night after my test results came in to change my meds. His office will always try to get you in the day you call.
