Dr H alpern, Mrs Silvia and staff in his office are the most wonderful and most caring and attentive medical professionals I have ever met! He is a man who does excellent work! Also he goes out of his way and the extra mile for his patients. A month later after my breast implant surgey, I am extremely happy with my results. ” Thank you Dr. Halpern”. I highly recommend him. :)

He performed reconstructive rhinoplasty on my wife who had an extremely traumatic accident which essentially crushed her entire nose and orbital socket. The surgery was a success and since we've been home he's been extremely available and has proactively followed up with us countless times. We've all been so impressed by his above and beyond demeanor and his legitimate interest in his patients. I would recommend Dr. Halpern to anyone who had a similar need or circumstance.

Excellent Doctor and staff. Highly recommend him. To the comments below but she’s cancer free NO MELANOMA. Surgeries are never convenient and they never run on time completely out of doctors control especially when a trauma comes to play.

My daughter had a 9:00 arrival time for a 10:00 procedure to remove Melanoma from the middle of her right cheek. Dr. Halpern ended up doing the procedure at 5:00 pm- UNACCEPTABLE At the first follow up appt, he "removed the stiches," and at the second follow up appt he said, "Oops, I guess there was one more stitch" and pulled it out which was extremely painful. Fast forward 5 months and she goes for a facial and the esthetician finds yet another stitch- again, UNACCEPTABLE
