What People Say About Dr. Melissa Halbach, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Halbach delivered my son via induction followed by C-section . There were serious complications during the surgery, and she was quite guarded and defensive afterward. I never received a call from her (after the mandatory follow up while I was in hospital still), and at my 6 week checkup she didn’t even inquire how I had/was recovering. I often felt that her “do you have any questions “ (no eye contact) was more of a way to rush me and end the appointment, rather than a genuine concern.

Feels like she rushes you through the appt. also a bit judgmental and defensive when answering questions. She will rarely offer up information but just stares at you while repeatedly asking ‘do you have any questions?’ What if I don’t know which questions to ask? Not very forthcoming or informative.

She has delivered two of my children and has always taken the time to listen to any concerns I have. She is professional and friendly.
