Dr Halaby took really great care of me, he is a wonderful surgeon. Terrific bedside manor. Explained and even drew out a diagram of what he was going to do. He made me feel really comfortable. I needed emergency abdominal surgery for ingesting a wire from a grill cleaning brush that perforated my bowel. If you have one, please throw it away and tell your family and friends too. He also fixed a small hernia in the incision area. I did not get to choose him, I hope you do, you will not be sorry.

Dr. Halaby explained what my surgery entailed and was very personable and showed concern for me. I couldn't have asked for a more competent surgeon to be available when I needed emergency surgery. He saved my life. During follow-up visits, he answered all my questions and was very thorough.

I chose Dr Halaby because one of my Dr's thinks that he is a Great Surgereon. He did surgery on my wife which she was in the hospital for a number of days about 3 years ago. I just had surgery two weeks ago and I'm doing great.

I chose Dr. Halaby from many general surgeons in the area for my hernia repair surgery based upon input from several health care professionals, as well as the fact that Dr. Halaby had his residency at Strong Hospital in Rochester, NY. I made a very wise choice! Dr. Halaby is a very skilled surgeon who is compassionate and patient oriented. He readily takes the time to explain any question or concern when asked and appointments aren't rushed. I am very satisfied with his care.

Dr. Halaby performed a lumpectomy on me two weeks ago after I had a bilateral mastectomy in 2013. He also performed the bilateral mastectomy. He is a very caring professional Dr. I wouldn't consider anyone else to operate on me. I wouldn't of known I had surgery except for a minor incision which I had absolutely no pain from. Thank you Dr. Halaby for being a caring physician !

If I looked for 1000 days I could not have found a better doctor than Dr Halaby. Following major back surgery Dr Halaby discovered two blockages in my digestive system. Within hours he had performed the necessary surgery, and I was in the way to recovery. This was a difficult surgery in every respect, given the other surgery I had four days prior. I highly, highly, highly recommend Dr Halaby and his excellent staff
