Ratings for Dr. Flavio Habal
Dr. Habal and the surgeon he worked with quite literally my life a number of years ago. He has been my gastroenterologist since for more than 20 years and I have consistently received the best care. He is caring and knowledgeable and my appointments with him are more like visiting a friend or family member. I hope he doesn't retire for a long time. I can't imagine being able to duplicate the relationship I have with him with another doctor. Although I have had difficulty Getty through to his office assistant at times, this has improved greatly. It is important to remember that his is a busy practice and it is not all about any one patient. His staff is generally very good at responding in a very timely manner by phone and email.
Dr. Habai is the best gastroenterologist. Period.
I have known this doctor for a long time and have been in his office several times Recently, I was extremely disappointed . He did not even listened to me and seemed to be very distant and detached. In the end I left his office without any help. Luckily I was sent to another gastroenterologist .
He is an amazing doctor, he saved my dads life even though his case was very complicated. He took the decision to do a scope and than a surgery immediately to stop variceal bleeding. He was extremely knowledgable and explained to us all the risks involved. Loved his compassion and honesty. We need more doctors like Dr. Habal. :)
I was assigned to Dr. Habal early last year when I was admitted to TGH for abdominal pain. So far Dr. Habal's the best doctor (including GPs) I've ever seen. He's attentive and knowledgeable, most of all he cares about his patients. I was discharged and undiagnosed with residual pain and nausea, I had to go back to the Emerg within a month of leaving the hospital. Dr. Habal would personally come down to the ER to see me and even called me at home afterwards to check on me. I've been seeing him ever since and although I'm still undiagnosed he continues to give me medical advice and options for treatments and diagnosis. I can't imagine patients giving him bad ratings at all. I hope this is also helpful for peeps out there looking for a good GI specialist.
I just had an appt with Dr. Habal last week. He was recommended by my family Dr. who assured me that I would really like him. I was SUPER impressed. He was extremely knowledgeable, gave me great advice, and he had a great sense of humour to boot. Life is too short not to have that. We waited ten minutes before called in to see him, which I was amazed as I was honkering down to read War and Peace having previously waited for Specialists over the years. This was a very pleasant surprise!
