Amazing staff as well, super fun and friendly, so glad I came across them on Zocdoc.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Halpern is so warm, fun, informative, and above all, kind. I came in on a referral from my GP's office for an invasive procedure, but Dr. Halpern did research form me and found that it was not actually the appropriate course of action based on my results and age. She explained everything so thoroughly and really put me at ease. I will definitely continue to see here for all of my women's health needs.

How was your experience with the doctor?OH MY GOD. NEVER EVER SEE THIS DOCTOR.Had been seeing another OBGYN for 13 years who I loved but I moved recently and needed a doctor within a realistic distance....and boy am I upset I chose this one. I had my previous doctor send over my medical records and she completely disregarded them - while ALSO being skeptical of my diagnoses and anything my previous doctor said or did. She took time out of our appointment to unreasonably and thoroughly explain what PCOS was (which I've been diagnosed with for 13 years)  as well as what Endometerosis was meanwhile my previous doctor explained it to me, gave me flyers and websites to look at to understand it...She was rude, cold, in a rush and made a few unprofessional comments. Never have I ever been to a doctor that raises her voice at me when I'm explaining a concern I'm having about my body. I left her office almost in tears.

How was your experience with the doctor?Bad bedside manner. Very rough in the way she speaks to you. Doesn’t care about your questions or offer helpful suggestions that are relevant to you. She even yelled at me on the phone once. The office doesn’t call you back with your results either. She had me switch to a birth control that actually made me feel horrible for a full year. I finally found a new obgyn who helped me choose the right pill and I’m doing a lot better.

It was quick and easy, and she talked me through everything during the exam. I'm so happy that I chose her. I've already recommended her to multiple friends and plan on continuing to do so.
