    Dr. Haberkern was wonderful with our daughter before her surgery. She had some very unique needs and he was amazing at customizing his approach to help her and us through this challenging time. He was very thorough in phone communications all morning before her surgery, and thoughtful at the hospital. Thank you very much for your kind, thoughtful approach!!
