Specialties

Dr. Robert A Havard Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

Dr havard continually misdiagnosed me throughout the course of treatment. I would not recommend him at all. Seek treatment elsewhere if you want a chance...

Doesnt Care!

Because of this MD's failure to diagnose my Mother's small bowel impaction over the course of 3 dr's appointments in one week (that my Mom made b/c she new something was wrong) she couldn't eat for 3 days, her bp dropped perilsally and she died at the main hospital while they tried to save her in an emergency surgery. All the clinicians were like "how was this not caught earlier?"Other major issues are: He takes on a tremendous amounts of patients at once. Due to his enormous case load the quality of his care drops. My mother and I got the impression we were just numbers with dollar signs pasted on our foreheads. He is always out of the office, has other Dr. give you bad news. Doesn't call or answer calls. Horrible bedside manner. He gives the impression everything is "okay" when really he is giving you a death sentence. My advice: go somewhere else... please beware, and "see" this Dr. at your own risk.

Dr. Havard and his staff are undisputed Masters of their art.

My experience is based on a b cell lymphoma I contracted a few years ago. Under the care of the good doctor and his staff, I underwent chemo. Yes, I lost hair and weight but did not suffer any nausea. The environs and support staff were so pleasant that I almost looked forward to my treatments. Maybe I was lucky, but perhaps Dr. Havard should be credited... at least that's what I think. Do yourself and your loved ones a favor...talk to Dr. Havard.

Prostate Survivor!!!

Dr.Havard is my guardian angel!! I am very grateful to him and his staff for saving my life. Especially the front reception girls. They always greeted me with a smile and respect. I would recommend Sequioa Regional Cancer Center to anyone that is going through the horrible disease of cancer.
