Dr. Hagans believed me and listened to what I was feeling about my body and MY belief that my breast implants were making me sick (BII, breast implant illness). He is easy to talk to and genuinely caring. My surgery for a capsulectomy was June 28th, early morning. I was home that afternoon with almost NO pain! Follow up appointments were great (especially removing my drains, with NO pain or the fact he was done before I could take a deep breath). I am TRULY grateful for him!

I saw him for almost a year for breast pain & architectural distortion on a mammo. Never ordered an ultrasound. Told me to take curcumin & quit worrying. Well here I am with invasive ductal cancer he missed. The man sees too many patients to give quality of care. There are many excellent female surgical oncologist in town that are better options. Do not be deceived. Your health is too important to take a chance.

Sadly, a good bedside manner does not equate to skill, nor does it compensate for an unprofessional staff. Dr. Hagans is very friendly, patient, and seems very caring, as other reviews indicate. Howevet, his surgical standards for cancer certainly seem to be lower than recommended.

Although Dr. Hagans has a good reputation, Beware! He removed my tumor and told me my margins were clear, but they were not! I found out myself after I saw my own pathology report. He did not get all of my cancer! When confronted, he said there was no need to do a re-excision (go back and remove all cancer) because the radiation will get it. I got 1 other surgeon and 2 oncologist opinions and they ALL said I should have had another surgery to remove it. I should have also gotten an axillary lymph node dissection because my lymph node was positive. Nope, Hagans said or did nothing. The second surgeon said the dissection is "protocol." He also misdiagnosed my axcillary web syndrome (cording) and just said it was a blood clot - take Asprin for 4 days and it will go away. Nope...I needed a physical therapist trained in breast cancer rehab to get my arm functional again over a 3 week period. Besides Hannah and Courtney, his staff is rude. The gal who calls you back is a nurse but never greets you, just starts walking 8 feet in front of you, and says, "You know the drill" to have me change. And, they NEVER take your vitals which is protocol in any doctors office for each visit! (blood pressure, temp, pulse/O2) Even 1 week after my surgery to have drain tube removed, with open wounds, no vitals! Unheard of! Moral of the story...see all reports and medical records yourself! If something seems off, get a second opinion and speak up...You're fighting for your life! Needless to say, I'm getting a second surgery out of the area with a top surgeon interested in getting all of my cancer!

Dr Hagans is a wonderful surgeon with awesome bedside manners. Explains and answers all questions at any time. He is a gold star doctor. However his staff is very uncaring and rude. Don't know how such a wonderful doctor can have this sort of staff.

I NEVER had any uncomplimenting issues with the entire office. Dr. Haggans is gentle, soft spoken, caring, he deserves a gold star when it comes to bedside manner. He treats each one of his patients like they are are special. He explains everything in detail, he doesn't hurry, and is never rude. Couldnt of had a better Dr, will miss him when I move. Hope to find a Dr just like him.

Very nice Dr. I was running late , and he still seen me in a timely manner. Heist ended to my issues and talked with me in depth about them. Did not seem hurried and took his time. He has an excellent bedside manner.

After receiving my breast cancer diagnosis I was not sure that I wanted to continue to use this doctor. He sees around 100 patients a day (confirmed by his staff). A close friend who also had breast cancer and was using him told me he came into her room and started telling her what surgery he wanted her to have. He obviously had the wrong patient and had to refresh him on who she was and her history. I decided that even though he was a nice man that he was too busy and seeing way too many patients for me. I choose Dr. Klimberg who is world renown and fantastic!
