What People Say About Dr. Monica Halem, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Halem is an incredibly arrogant and rude doctor. After visiting her for severe acne, I was left disappointed and frankly offended by the way she treated me. Never have I seen such disrespect from a physician. She had me wait over an hour for my appointment and couldn't muster even an apology nor an introduction. She clearly wanted me to make the appointment quick. In addition, she hawks her own products and this seemed to affect her advised course of treatment. Would never recommend.

this review isn't in reguards to the facialist in the office. I have not seen Dr. Halem and don't think I will be. I went in to find out about a medical facial. I thought it would be the type where I showed my concerns and would get a yes or no as to a facial helping. Instead I was handed a mirror and asked to make a frown and to be told I need Botox in my forehead and fillers in my cheek. 1. When the conversation started I said I want interested. 2. I'M IN MY EARLY 20s. STAY AWAY FROM HERE!!!!
