HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! STAY AWAY. I WILL NEVER RETURN TO OR RECOMMEND THIS CLINIC TO ANYONE. My procedure appointment took 5 weeks to make as staff NEVER called me back. Arrived on time, confirmed the appointment with office manager made for TODAY -- they said it was for tomorrow! ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! The staff is completely inept and I have ZERO confidence my surgery would be handled professionally or appropriately. The don't return calls and make false promises of help that NEVER come true. As a side note, a prisoner in shackles was taken back in a room with guards. It was very uncomfortable for the patients to see guards with guns and a prisoner waiting with other patients. I stood at the desk for 10 minutes - they had no idea who I was or why I was there. Yet, was PROMISED an appointment that never happened that is a precursor to surgery. HORRIBLE experience and huge waist of time. This staff deserves an 'F' in patient. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!

I walked into surgery and I came out paralyzed. Dr Khavkin destroyed my life! No more walking or riding my bike. Neurosurgeon told me today that damage he did to my spine is permanent! Also found out he has ruined the lives of many other patients.

Dr Khavkin correctly diagnosed my husband's issue after a hospitalization and more than six months of treatment by other doctors. While my husband's congenital condition is extremely rare, Dr. Khavkin operated and successfully removed a fistula located within and around my husband's spine. We only wish Dr Khavkin had been the original neurologist on my husband's case so as not to have lost so much time and functionality. Only time is going to tell if he will regain back use of his legs.

Dr. Khavkin saved my mother's life. She diagnosed with the posterior meningioma (brain tumor) that was located in a very dangerous spot. Dr. Khavkin immediately scheduled the surgery and was able to operate on her within a short time constraint. His bedside manner and caring attitude put us at ease immediately. The brain surgery lasted 8 hours, but was a complete success! My mom had no loss of vision, hearing, or feelings in her body parts. We are forever grateful to Dr. Khavkin and his team!

Within 60 days of meeting Dr K (and providing 3-yrs of history) I had a lumbar fusion of L3-L5, associated facetectomies, laminectomies, forminotomies, and 2-diskectomies and replacements. After 2-years on walkers and canes I was able to stand fully upright on the evening of my surgery. My reliance on Oxycodone and Morphine post surgery ended within weeks. DrTakagi and MrPope assisted (their 125% bills were surprises) as did RedRockNeurodiag.LLC for EMG (+SURPRISE:$12,500 out of network/pocket!)

I recently had a lumbar fusion, L4,5, and S1. Dr. Takagi fixed me! I put this surgery off for a decade because I was afraid and now I wish I would have done it so much sooner. The staff is also very kind and organized. I couldn’t be happier!

The best Neurologist in Nevada if not the world! Probably the most humble and sincerely caring human I know. If you actually get to see him personally you will be blown away at his demeanor and how sincerely caring he is.
