Ratings for Dr. Mark A. Haber
I didn't choose to see Dr Haber but when I had my first kidney stone, he had the first availability in that office. He spent just a couple minutes with me and said my stone was small and shouldn't cause pain (it was, and bleeding!) and to let it pass naturally and try to catch it. That's it. I had a lot of pain for many days afte that, and it changed for the worse. I was never offered pain meds. Finally they did another scan and the stone was now stuck and had to be removed with surgery, and he put a stent in for a week afterwards that was quite painful. Still no pain medication, which is very different from the experiences of some friends and co workers at different doctors. The stone was very rough and spiky and larger than indicated on the CT scan. It honestly felt like this doctor just didn't care, he certainly was quite cold. Thankfully this is the worst experience I've ever had, but it's really sad to see there are so many others on here with similar experiences, going back several years. I wouldn't expect much change.
Don't Bother: Just waited 90 mins pat waiting time. Then was told he is in surgery. Took a day off for this and was not even seen. Then I called the appointment line which he leaves at 3PM. I feel like the were just kicking me out. Never even met the guy!
I was an established patient when I discovered I had kidney stones. I went to my appointment and gave a urine specimen. I tested it with my own strips before we even left the house and it showed that I had a lot of blood in my urine. Dr Haber came in and said my CT scan showed that I had stones but that they were so small that they would pass on their own and they shouldn't be causing me any pain. He wouldn't give me anything for pain. I think that's an abuse of authority. #1- if men had babies or constant kidney stones, there would be gum ball machines full of pain meds in the lobby of every building. #2- if you don't like being a doctor, quit or take up another specialty. Please don't take it out on your patients. #3- don't lie about test results. People can and do monitor their own health, with accurate products, they buy on the internet. And you can buy ANYTHING on the internet. #4- don't be a jerk. You WILL be reviewed. So, all in all, save your sanity, your kidneys, your ureters and your bladder. Find a doctor who cares. It's not this one.
Worst experience at a doctor I have ever had!! I was referred to him due to the amount of kidney stones I had been producing. I will say it was very easy to get an appointment that was the only good thing. I ran all over town to get records of CT scans and hospital visits. I was completely prepared for the appointment. He came in said, "so you have stones? When was the last one?" I told him about my recent hospital visit a few days ago an that the pain still has not gone away. He said we will get you set up with a CT scan. Give me just a second and I'll be right back. He never came back. His nurse returned and said they will contact you within a week for a CT scan and he called in an antibiotic. After the CT scan you will contact us for a follow up. I said what about the pain I'm currently in and the stones I haven't passed. She said sorry this is how we do it. His bedside manner was horrible, he spent all of 2 minutes with me and never even examined me. He asked me 2 questions and said he would return and never came back. I was absolutely appalled. I am 24 days away from being married, in a whole lot of pain, and continued kidney stones. He did nothing for me. I will make sure everyone knows how horrible he really was. No sympathy, no knowledge, nothing!!!
I went in thinking I had another kidney stone..he didn't even examine me. He told me he couldnt help, but he'd lead me into the right direction. I started to cry & he told me I had no right to cry..that he had other patients dying from cancer that would love my pain. He went on to talk about other patients and then left me..my "examination" was maybe 3 min after I waited 45min in the waiting room & than another 30 in the room. His PA was just as friendly..I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO HIM.
He is an excellent doctor.He did retrograde pyelogram for me .I trust him.He has refereed me to another doctor for my robotic pyeloplasty whom I do not know at all.But just because of my trust on doctor Haber, I am going for the other doctor.I hope everything works well with the other one too.
Waited 1 hour and 15 min for first visit. No one could tell me how long the wait would be. Had prostate biospy done, very painfull with 17 total shots, no medication , told I could go back to work. The local pain medication wore off, felt like I had been fisted by a gorilla. Past bllood for 2 weeks after. Information provide me not exactly factual. 3 visit doctors office canceled on me, just as well, Im not coming back
