Dr Khavkin did a fusion in my cervical spine and he did a great procedure. The scar in my neck is minimal. His staff has been very helpful in after care.

I trust Dr Khavkin with my life. He has performed my cervical C4-C6 with a C6-C7 revision and my L4-S1. I chose him over another top rated Nuerosurgeon because of his expertise and professionalism. If I should need him in the future, I would not hesitate to travel across country to do so. His staff is courteous and efficient. Nicole goes the extra mile to ensure your hospital and rehabilitation is chosen for your needs.

I personally have recommended at least 12 friends to Dr. Khavkin. He had to operate on three of them. One surgery to remove tumors from the skull, one for a horrible back, and the third for a spinal cord tumor. Dr. Khavkin absolutely saved her life. The other two surgeries were also successful. He refused to do surgery on several others, including myself thus far. Dr. Khavkin is not only a brilliant surgeon, he does everything possible to avoid surgery. I cannot say enough good about the man.

The clinic does not practice social distancing at this Covid times! His wait times are horrific! The clinic is so unorganized! The doctor rushes through your appointment. I definitely have zero confidence in his skills!

I’m super grateful to Dr Khavkin for such amazing results after successful spine fusion surgery. After 3 months of excruciating pain in lower back and left leg, he saved my life and I’m pain free and able to walk, work and even exercise just months after surgery! Other doctors were all about treating the symptoms, not root of the problem, drug money and had no skills to help me. Dr Khavkin was straight forward, honest and I’m so happy to be able to live my life again pain free. Thank you!!! ??

I lived with neck pain for years and when it finally locked up and hurt so bad I was forced to do something, a different Dr. told me it was just a fluke. Eleven months later I saw Dr. Y Khavkin and he ordereda n opertaion immediately to repair bad disks opinching spinal cord. Personnel at surgery center were fantastic, and no pain immediately after operation. I receommend the entire Khavkin clinic to anyone needing good care and advice.

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!

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.

Dr. Khavkin's L1-S1 fusion left my mother with excruciating pain, new-onset high blood pressure, & crippling symptoms such as spontaneous rib fractures due to her back bending & fracturing at L1. It was so poorly done & left her in such bad shape that no other surgeon was willing to risk operating on her. This man's objectives are status and money alone. He does "big", unnecessary, & unsafe surgeries. He looks great on paper, but he does not care or have the know-how to perform well in the OR.
