Dr. Havranek and staff were SUPERB. Everyone was friendly and professional, starting from my very first phone call as a new patient. The phone representatives, the girl who checked me in, the front office staff, the nurses, Dr. Havranek and his Nurse Practioner, the after care, everything was a 10/10. I couldn’t be happier.

Professional, kind, caring, knowledgeable, friendly, dignified, pleasant, timely... There aren't enough positive adjectives to describe my recent experience with Dr. Havranek and his staff! I would highly recommend without reservation and plan to continue care with him for the long haul. If you're reading this it probably means you're needing a gastrointestinal procedure and you're looking for confirmation that you'll be in the very capable hands of not only an amazing physician, but with an equally awesome support staff... Well, here's your sign! They are GREAT! Read Less

The entire colonoscopy process, once i got past the "purge" and in the office, was handled very well, with the process end to end explained clearly and in a way to reduce stress. All staff were great and the actual colonoscopy was the best nap I have had in a while. Would highly recommend!

Dr. Havranek explained a procedure I had done before he did it. Was very thorough on everything and i was very nervous, he assured me everything would go smoothly. The procedure was exactly how he explained it. I would recommend this doctor to anyone. A++++++

Dr Havranek and the staff at the surgical center was very professional and caring. The whole process was like a well oiled machine. They are very efficient yet you did not feel rushed and the staff did everything possible to make me feel comfortable. Dr Havarnek made sure that I understood procedure, provided pictures from the procedure and follow up steps. I will be back again and will definitely use him for any gastrointestinal needs.

The entire experience was professional and friendly. The staff was very helpful from the initial appointment to the follow up call the day after. Everyone I spoke to was friendly, warm and kind. The procedure was relaxing and painless. The prep is never fun but professionalism and efficiency of the staff made the day of the procedure a breeze. I highly recommend Dr. Havranek and his awesome staff.

I’m a retired Medical Asst and very picky about my Drs. Dr Havranek is by far the best in Gastroenterology. He’s prompt, personable, taking time to answer any and all questions and in my opinion an excellent physician. I had a routine colonoscopy last week done within the hour of my arrival but not rushed in any sense. His staff in surgery are first class and actually care about me as a patient My husband will have his colonoscopy Thursday and there’s no doubt in my mind that he will be treated equally. The initial call to his office was excellent as well. Very professional and helpful and understandable.
