Patient Comments (4)

in Kansas City, MO
He refused to give me an mri, said there was nothing wrong with my ankle. I decided to get a second opinion. Not only was my ankle tendons ripped but to the point my ankle is severely damaged and i need surgery to get my ankle back to 50%. It will never be the same.

Dr. Halpern does not have the "best bed side manner", but what he has is the skill of a professional and I for one will be letting him do my knee replacement. as a side note I am seeing him at the Paw Paw office where things are done very professional from the time you walk in the door till you...more

The best orthopedic surgeon in Kalamazoo period. He is brilliant, a skilled surgeon, wastes no time with fluff, and isn't afraid to do FMLA paperwork

I had a serious accident, and he happened to be on rounds at Bronson hospital and they told me I'd never walk again and he fixed me up and I'm doing fine, walking fine and getting by better than ever. So take the time to see him, he's the best !,??
