Statement


“I want my patients to feel that they received the best-quality care from someone who truly cared about them. It’s fun to work with children because they have a positive outlook on life and are real fighters.”
Dr. Haws and his wife, Kellie, have nine children. I enjoy spending time with my family, serving as a Boy Scout troop leader and tracing my family genealogy.
