Patient Comments (4)

Dr Hathwar explained my problem very thoroughly and the tests I would have to go through. He communicated with me by phone and other doctors . He used his computer so we knew exactly what was wrong

I can't help but wonder who and what the previous survey respondents encountered. I've had the opposite experience from these negative comments on every visit. Nice, helpful staff - always! As for Dr. Hathwar - he is: kind, warm, knowledgeable and helpful. He is easy to talk to and responsive. He treats me for COPD and Sleep Apnea and has literally saved my life. I recommend him to everyone in need of a really good doctor

Staff is extremely rude and not helpful at all. Good luck trying to get a hold of them. You will be put on an endless hold(over 8min) and when they actually answer they are clueless. Dr. Hathwar seems pretty knowledgeable however he wants you to come to his office and pay co pay for things that can easily be done over the phone. Had to take 2 hours off during the day to visit office and pay $40 copay just to spend 5min with him so he could tell me that I needed to schedule another study!

I find Dr. Hathwar very warm and concerned about me as a patient. He has been attentive to my condition and aided me by diagnosing and treating my sleep apnea. He is easy to talk with, clear in his conversation in regards to my issues and I believe him to be very knowledgeable and caring.
