Ratings for Dr. David K. Hafen
Dr Hafen was recommended to me by my pediatrician after my insurance changed. I have been going to Dr Hafen for at least 10 years always felt he and his staff were very nice, knowledgable and professional. The receptionist even stands out to me as a very nice person so I am surprised to see comments to the contrary.
Dr Hafen refused to prescribe me a known benzodiazepine stating that they have a high risk potential. However he prescribed another medicine that he didn't even know was a benzodiazepine. It is clear that he has little to no knowledge of pharmaceuticals at all.
Dr. Hafen is a great doctor. Very caring. Highest marks for his professionalism. His staff is unfriendly and unhelpful. There is always a terrible wait. I've never waited a shorter time than 45 minutes and I've seen him for 5 or 6 years. The wait has made us think of switching doctors.
This doctor had been fairly decent until he put high-pressure - like a used car salesman - to get surgery through an associate of his. The surgery was optional and I chose to not get surgery and have had no problems for the 8 years since and still feeling fine. Dr. Hafen employed fairly extreme tactics to get me to seek surgery: "In opting to not get this surgery you are going against the entire medical industry!" I found it very unprofessional.
We absolutely love him. He listens to our concerns, and is very good at his job. We would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an amazing doctor that cares about his patients over all well being. We have been his patients for 6 years and plan to see him as long as we live in the area. Amazing dr. and we consider ourselves lucky to have found him.
