Bio

Dr. Havill grew up in northern England, in a small town in Cheshire. A far cry from where he would eventually end up in Colorado Springs. He had a keen interest in clinic medicine from a young age. Joining the doctors on rounds throughout high school piqued his interest and subsequently he attended medical school at the age of 18, to become a junior physician at the age of 23, a standard practice for British doctors.

He attended St. Bartholomew’s medical school in London, to follow in the footsteps of many historic pioneers of medicine including William Fleming (discoverer of the circulation) and even the fictional character of Dr. John Watson. After medical school was complete his initial practice included general medicine and general surgery, emergency medicine in the East End of London from which he gained an excellent insight into a wide breadth of clinical medicine. At that time that he decided to practice adult internal medicine in the United States of America.

He completed his residency training in New York medical College at St. Vincent’s Hospital in internal medicine. He was then inspired to become a nephrologist, rounding with the nephrology specialists in New York City. Nephrology appealed to Dr. Havill as it integrated a combination of physiology, pathology and chemistry, whilst providing care for some of the sickest patients that we may take care of. A most gratifying experience.

He entered Johns Hopkins Hospital for his nephrology fellowship training, working alongside some of the leading researchers in the field and wonderful clinical physicians in clinical nephrology.

Following fellowship, he initially practiced in Las Vegas, before the heat became too much and he decided to transition his practice to Colorado Springs.

Having moved to Colorado in March 2017 he looks forwards to providing care to the Colorado community. He has a special interest in End Stage Renal Disease, providing care for dialysis patients, specifically for patients that dialyze at home and taking care of patients with varying degrees of chronic kidney disease.
