How was your experience with the doctor?It was a good visit. I was seen promptly and even though Dr Halperin couldn’t diagnose what I had, he called a specialist and helped me schedule a follow up right away.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Halperin took the time to listen to all of my concerns and symptoms and instead of writing them off or ignoring anything he paid attention and took me seriously. He made the extra effort to use his connections and get me a same day appointment at a specialist because he felt they could better diagnose my illness. For a doctor I was seeing the first time, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I will definitely be seeing him again as my regular primary based on how much trust he built in this first appointment.

How was your experience with the doctor?Wait time was good and receptionist helpful. This is where positivity stops. I found the doctor to be somewhat arrogant, apathetic, and curt. My questions were answered with contempt and annoyance. I don’t understand why I was treated with such contempt as a patient suffering from an ailment. Equipment used also seemed superannuated. Ended up seeing another doctor who was much better and actually helped my condition improve. Would not recommend at all.

How was your experience with the doctor?He asked me a lot of the same questions which he could have gotten the answers to by looking at the form I filled out. In fact, he didn't let me finish filling out the form, so later when I was finishing filling it out after the appointment, I couldn't answer questions like "would you like to get tested for STDs" because if I put "yes" it was already too late anyway. I take specific medication and he hasn't even heard of it (whereas other doctors who don't even specialize in what I'm taking my medication for - such as gynecologists and dentists- know exactly what it is). He asked me if I'm currently in school, and about 5 minutes afterwards he had already forgotten that he had asked (and I had answered) and asked me again. Very quickly he told me he doesn't know what to do and basically told me to find another doctor. And I hate that I'm paying for this.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Halperin is great. He saw me literally as I walked into the office (10 minutes before my scheduled appointment), and had me out of there 15 minutes later. I have a huge issue with needles so he made sure to distract me while he drew blood.

How was your experience with the doctor?I'm relatively new to NYC and was looking for a primary care physician in my neighborhood. I read Dr, Halperin's strong reviews in Zocdoc but was not expecting anything out of the ordinary. However, this was definitely the best medical experience I've had in a long time. Many doctors are friendly but it seems that few these days are personable, Dr. Halperin is. He took the time to get to know me personally and medically. In fact, it may be silly but being a gay man I was a bit nervous discussing my sex life with an older, straight (I'm assuming) man, but once again, he made me feel comfortable on that topic. He is clearly a wealth of knowledge, loves what he does, and is not in it for the money. In this case old school is definitely a good thing.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Halperin's level of care can only come from someone who is truly interested in their patients and satisfied in their line of work. The Dr. spoke with me before my examination and then examined me throughly, even taking my blood, which assistants usually do. He called me a few days afterwards to review my physical. Excellent experience.

How was your experience with the doctor?I am not exaggerating when I say that my visit with Dr. Halperin has totally changed my outlook on the medical profession. I always dread going to the doctor and often feel like they're in a rush to get me out of the door and don't make a real effort to listen to my issues. Not the case here. No computer, all handwritten. No rushing. He asked me a ton of questions about my life, was extremely personable and showed real empathy - not to mention clearly knows a ton about medicine. Thank you Dr. Halperin!

How was your experience with the doctor?If you are looking for a Dr. who spends most of your visit tapping into a computer while you speak find someone else. Dr. Halperin has a great bedside manner, asks lots of questions and gets right to the issues. He put my issues into perspective and I felt better when I left. His assistant is really nice and also has a sense of humor. Rather than just hand me the name of a diagnostic center for me to call, she called right there for my apt. Who does that today? It was very helpful. The Dr is someone who has a lot of experience and wisdom and frankly I trust his opinion more than many of the specialists I have seen who seen to be averse to answering any question not in the area of specialty.Hope this helps for those not sure what to do.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Halperin is just wonderful. He took the time to get a clear understanding of my medical history and the purpose of my visit. He is extremely knowledgable and caring - my visit with him was the least "transactional" medical appointment I've ever had. I trust his expertise, as well as his recommendations for other professionals and specialists to whom he referred me for follow-up treatment. I'm so grateful to have found Dr. Halperin!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Halperin was referred to me by a friend after I was dissatisfied with my current primary doctor. I researched him. He has a great reputation. He was one of the best doctors I've ever had. He is extremely knowledgeable, take time to learn about you and your medical history and has excellent bedside manners. His approach is great especially in this day and age of doctor visits where the doctor only spends 5 - 10 minutes with you. I highly recommend him.
