    After seeing 4 different foot and ankle surgeons over the last 6 years since injuring it, Dr. Halloran explained what was wrong and the spectrum of options to treat it--from conservative to surgical--so well. He listened and explained his recommendations. I'd recommend Dr. Halloran to anyone!

He definitely is quality in so many ways. Highly recommend Him.

    Dr. Halloran took extra time and care to continually understand and assess my specific condition and lifestyle needs for proper injury recovery and prevention. He made me feel informed and comfortable through each step in the pre-, post-, and surgical processes.
    in Kansas City, KS |
    My recent knee surgery with Dr. Halloran at the Dickson-Diveley Orthopedic Institute was an exceptional experience. The facility was spotlessly clean and the entire staff from beginning to end were professional, knowledgeable, and very compassionate. I have had 3 shoulder surgeries this past year with different orthopedic surgeons at different surgery centers. The difference in both presurgical and post surgical care was amazing. Dr. Halloran' s medical and surgical expertise was exceptional.
    in Prairie Village, KS |
    Dr. Halloran was quick in diagnosis and laid out a variety of options. He ultimately performed surgery on my ankle. The surgery was successful and after follow up visits I am back to my previous activity. I will recommend Dr. Halloran to family and friends.

    Dr. Halloran repaired a Lisfranc (very painful) fracture in my foot with excellent results. An excellent surgeon who explains and listens.
    in Overland Park, KS |
    Dr. Halloran is one of the best orthopedic surgeons I've ever dealt with - he's very focused on his patients, very honest about expectations, explains alternatives to surgery along with successes for each alternative, great bedside manner, etc... I can't say enough good things about Dr. Halloran!
    in Kansas City, MO |
    Totally impressed with Dr. Halloran. Very good surgeon and very professional.
    in Lee's Summit, MO |
    Dr Halloran takes the time to explain options and show you the xrays. I have seen him for more than one problem over the past 18 months and have always felt he cared what happed to me. He does not rush through the exam and he allows time for questions. He stays pretty much on schedule too. My husband has also seen him and had surgery for a painful condition and had an excellent outcome. I feel I have been fortunate to have found Dr Halloran.
    in Kansas City, MO |
    Awesome doctor! Very caring and knowledgeable.

    Dr. spent so much time examining and discussing options for my second opinion.
    in Olathe, KS |
    He was very personable and knowledgeable. He took his time to make sure I understood he issues and the plan for treatment.
    in Blue Springs, MO |
    I would consider Dr. Halloran to be the very best. Caring, compassionate, and patient. Listened and thoughtfully answered all my questions before my ankle surgery and then after provided to very best care I could ask for. I asked him to treat me like he would a member of his family and I believe I received that level of care. Would, and have, recommend him to others without hesitation. Dixon and Diveley facilities and level of service is what health should be,
    in Overland Park, KS |
    Dr. Halloran's team worked me in with an appointment on a busy afternoon, yet when he examined my condition, Dr. Halloran showed no signs of being rushed. He took the time to ask about possible injuries, onset of the pain, frequency of the swelling, and then tested how much my inflamed Achilles tendon affected my flexibility and strength. One day later, I can already tell that following the treatment plan Dr. Halloran outlined has put me on the road to recovery!
    in Baldwin City, Kansas |
    Dr. Halloran showed great kindness and care in treating my broken ankle. He scheduled me for surgery the next day and assured me that I would be fine. At each follow up visit, he was very supportive and helpful. I especially appreciated how much time he spent reviewing the xrays and my progress. He's charming, personable and highly trained. I would recommend Dr. Halloran to friends and especially, my family.
    in Overland Park, KS |
    Love Dr H... Very personable & explains my foot issues with detail. Thank you
