Although she has a very nice bedside manner, Dr. Havlik seems inexperienced and did not instill confidence in me concerning her ability to help me. She gave me conflicting info. about appropriate exercises to do for my condition each time I saw her. Her assistant did not listen to me and gave her incorrect info. which was then added to my medical records. I eventually went to see another doctor because of all of this.
