I have been a patient of Dr Halpren for 20 years and he is great. He listens to my complaints and refers me to the appropriate specialist without hesitation. He doesn't worry what his medical group thinks of my referrals or medications prescribed, he does what's right for me. My last doctor wouldn't refer me out because he was worried about what the medical group would think. Dr. Halpren is the best GP in Santa Cruz county, hands down. Ed Price
