I really like Dr. Hlavinka -- he is knowledge, efficiency, and caring attitude toward patients is greatly appreciated. My only difficulty is in scheduling appointments -- front office is inefficient at keeping website info up-to-date. When I called the office (using the number they posted on my email reminder), the number was no longer working and the Suite number was incorrect. I know this is not the standard Dr. Hlavinka sets for his office, so I'd like to see them improve things at the front

Dr tells me I have kidney stones and need procedure. It has been impossible to schedule and staff does not return phone calls even when they say they'll call back. I hope they don't reply with the same canned response to call their main number as that would just make me speak to their staff when they are the problem.

Dr. Hlavinka has been the urologist for myself and my wife for many years. The care has always been outstanding. As a fellow physician I have the upmost confidence him and believe he will thrive in his in new office. I was just there and it is a marked improvement over the old office. Best of luck Dr. H!

I have been a patient of Dr. Hlavinka for over 7 years. Before I became his patient, I had been treated for chronic urological issues by a number of doctors without relief from pain or discomfort. Dr. Hlavinka took charge of my case, changed my medicine routine and brought me back to good health for the first time in over 15 years. I am a patient of his for life and strongly recommend him to others.

Have been a patient for several years. Dr Hlavinka has always taken the time to thoroughly explain treatment needed and listen to any concerns I might have. Happy to follow him to The Urology Place and need to be contacted for an appointment, preferably mid Jan 2017.

I have been a patient of Dr. Hlavinka for more than 10 years and know him to be a great diagnostician for all of the urological issues relating to my spinal cord injury, taking the time to "hear me out" and then detail the "whys" of his treatment plan and what to expect. He always been responsive when needed which is not always easy given the operating and customer service issues of such a huge practice as Urology San Antonio, though they have improved recently.

I have been a C-5 quadriplegic for over 30 years and Dr Hlavinka has been my urologist for over 10 years. I've had several urologists over the years, but Dr Hlavinka is the best. He cares about his patients and takes the time to talk, listen, explain, and actually get to know his patients. He really cares. He has kept my kidneys and bladder functioning better than expected. I trust him unconditionally. I hope he doesn't retire as long as I'm alive!

Dr Hlavinka seemed to be quite skilled and was very personable. I liked him immediately. However, trying to schedule a follow up appointment wa squire frustrating. I could not get a call through, until I had been on the line for 15-20minutes. Additionally, in my initial meeting with him, I arrived 20 minute early for a 2:15 appointment and spent the next two hours waiting in an exam room for him to get to me. By the time he and I were finished, the office was closed! phone call for next appt!
