Dr. Halpern is, without question the best doctor I have ever been a patient of. He is exceedingly knowledgeable, displays outstanding "bedside manner," remains fully engaged throughout the visit, and is beyond personable. Dr. Halpern always goes above and beyond to ensure that you leave your visit with him well-informed, confident and reassured about what took place during the time spent together. ..These are the reasons for my scores. I am fortunate to have Dr. Halpern as my urologist! He's wonderful!
