dr halsted was very smpathetic to my pain. he explained the procedure so i understood what to expect. i liked him alot . he did a great job and i am very happy. the only thing i would like to see him change would be taking out stitches alot more gently . that hurt alot.

I had both my wrists done ,a month apart, surgeries were like clockwork, fast procedure , minimal pain, and incisions look great, first hand heeled nicely, and I have full confidence the other will be fine as well. great staff as well, friendly and informative. many thanks, Jeff Diab

The only reason i was a bit low on the ease of scheduling was not because of Dr. Halsted or his staff, but rather, my PCP, being so slow to coordinate this referral which is required by my insurer.
