Pleasant experience for an unpleasant procedure
Dr Haveranek and all his staff were fast, efficient, made me feel comfortable, and answered all my questions. His nurses were all 1st class. My family has seen Dr Haveranek for years and have all been equally pleased. The only way this could have been made better was magic to skip the prep.

Efficient and professional
Dr, Havranek and his staff worked to get me in to see him in an extremely efficient and professional manner. I was made to feel very comfortable about the EGD procedure required, and it was performed in a skillful and timely way by Dr, Havranek.

I became aware or Dr. Havranek from my girlfriend and when I needed to schedule a routine colonoscopy I decided to make an appointment with him. It was very easy to schedule the appointment and the communication with his staff leading up to the procedure was excellent. I have never been to Dr. Havranek's office and met him for the first time when he came in to introduce himself to me just before the procedure. He wanted to know if I had any questions which I didn't. The procedure went very well and the follow up communication has been good. I would highly recommend Dr. Havranek to anyone needing his specialty of care.

Dr. Havranek performed an endoscopy and colonoscopy for me. His office was extremely helpful in scheduling these procedures. I met him right before surgery and he checked on me while I was in recovery. His team was so professional and kind and I really liked his straightforward bedside manner. I received results of biopsies as he had told me I would and all was benign. As a two-time cancer survivor the results from these procedures have given me peace of mind. I plan to continue to see him for any other gastrointestinal issues.

I've been through two other gastroenterologists before Dr. H. Let's just say I've finally found my guy. Dr. H will not just put a band aid on your problems, he will get down to the source a fix you! My life has improved drastically since being Dr. H's patient. I would recommend anyone and everyone to him. His whole staff is excellent too!

First Colonoscopy at 55 years old. The LVN's are so nice during prep. My Anesthesiologist Manning set my mind at ease. The nurses in the procedure room were talkative, informative, and competent. They set my mind and nerves at ease immediately by being compassionate, warm, and friendly.

Dr. Havranek took the time to understand my medical history and my concerns. Dr. Havranek performed my colonoscopy. The process (pre-op, the procedure, and post-op) was flawless. The staff was professional and made for a stress free experience.
