OMG, there is a reason she was the only Orthopedic Dr. with same day availability. Wish I would have seen the other reviews. Absolutely horrible. She rushed me through exam and didn't listen to any of my concerns. Office is dirty. I would never recommend nor go back. FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR.
in Manorville, NY |
sent to see her for a w/c appt. she is a so called hand specialist and mine is for head,neck and shoulders!! not polite or professional at all. would not answer any questions given and DID NOT examine me in detail at all. would never see her again or recommend her practice to anyone EVER!! don't know how many IME"s a day/week she does but seemed like she just moves patients along for the almighty dollar. How does she sleep at night!!! besides her answers seem one sided for W/Comp!!

Not someone who would normally take time of my busy day to leave a review but if one person benefits from reading this and sees someone else it was worth it . Sent to her for an IME exam for a back injury and she is hand/wrist specialist . If she examined me for 30 seconds it was a lot . Obvious just takes those exam assignments for the money. Was extremely rushed and unprofessional.

I went to see Dr. Habacker for a problem with my wrist. Prior to my visit, I got an X-ray and an MRI. I went to Dr. Habacker because my general doctor said I needed a specialist. When I went to her office, she seemed frazzled. She did not know how to show me the MRI results and needed technical assistance from the nurse to pull up my x rays. She tried to say that the x rays were the MRI results. She looked at my hand quickly and said you are fine. My wrist is still in pain.

I would not recommend dr. habacker to anyone......she is too quick to dismiss your symptoms. she doesn't take any time with her patients......and she overlooks your underlying issues, by not addressing your problems.....
