He didn't do nothing for me. He performed open heart on me a few years ago and all of the arteries closed off 3 monthes afterwards leaving me in worse shape than I was before.

I give him credit for being one of the doctors at PMC for saving my dad's life. Pikeville is fortunate to have him, and I for one, am glad he's here. I would reccomend him to anyone.

I'm sorry to hear that your surgery didn't go well. Honestly though, I'm not sure if there's any heart surgeon that has a 100% success rate. Look on the bright side, you're still with us, so you're surgery wasn't a total failure!

Dr. Havens is a wonderful physician. He did a lobectomy on my dad as he had lung cancer and it took a while for him to get his strenght back but he did good. The chemo was what got him. First treatment caused him to have 3 mini strokes.
know him too

Why be disappointed with what the Dr goes to save your life.I have had 3 carotid surgeries and maybe another one in a few months.The Drs are doing all they know to do to my arteries and keep me alive,not their fault they are blocking back again.They do their best to un clog them and keep me alive..Amen to the Drs for what they do for us to keep us alive.Your life is in the lord's hands...

Dr. Havens is a great dr. he has done heart surgery on my mother, sister-in-law and also 2 friends from Island creek and they all are dong great.. Dr. Haven put a defibellator in my sister in laws son and he is doing great after having a heart attack.
My mother had a heart attack on wed. and they did heart cath on Sun. and heart surgery on Tue. He did 4 bypasses and a aortic valve replacement on her in May 08 and she is doing great. My sister in law had 3 bypasses june 09 and the friends from island creek had 10 bypasses and a aortic valve replacement done and as i said all are doing great.
AFTER SUCH SURGERIES IT TAKE TIME FOR YOU TO RAGAIN YOUR STRENGTH.

I WOULD RECOMMEND DR. HAVENS ABOVE ANY OTHER HEART DR. AT PIKEVLLE MEDICAL CENTER. IF YOU NEED TO HAVE SURGERY HE'S THE MAN TO GO TO.

Dr Havens is one of the kindest, caring doctors I know. He has done surgery on multiple people I know and some people I'm very close to. The doctor
does everything in his power to save every patient that he operates on. The ultimate outcome is up to the GREAT ONE in heaven. If the person's time is up all of the medical interventions in the world won't save him or her. God has the final say so in all of our lives. Dr. Havens is awesome in his line of work and I would trust him with my care or my family's. And I trust that the Good Lord will take care of the rest. Prayer Works, Try it!!

He did biopsi on my mom and cut an artery. And ended up almost dead. It ended serious and had to cut her wide open to fix artery. Froze her lung to shrink it and paralized her diaphragm . She can't breath now. Walks 10feet and has to stop. Now she needs 24 hour care. She cant afford the care. Should I sue???

He probably didn't cut an artery. Your mom probably had a tumor that was lying close to the pulmonary artery and when he did the biopsy she began to bleed. And the reason why shee ant breath is because she probably has lung cancer not because of the biopsy... Just saying

How much does your mother weigh, that could have an effect on how well she breaths also.

How could someone have 10 bypasses when humans only have 5 arteries going to the heart. dummy
