Patient Comments (2)
in Stafford VA |
Dr. Halpin has been my OBGYN more approx. 20 years. He has outstanding mannerisms, compassion, responsiveness, and conveyance of medical terms to a non-medical person. He has given me his professional medical opinion on issues I had when I was overseas and diagnosed with a medical problem and has referred me to specialists who investigated and mitigated my back spasms, broken bone, torn ligament (neurologist, orthopedic, internist, surgeon). My highest regard for Dr. H.
in Worcester, MA |
Dr Halpin, without notification and to my complete surprise, performed a vaginal and rectal exam on me. Something I've never had prior or after this disturbing exam. I've had 2 children with other OBGYN's and NEVER had such an exam. NEVER.
If you have had two children, it's hard to believe that you've never had a Pap smear, which requires a vaginal exam, not to mention the vaginal exams which are routine to monitor your progress in labor, A rectal exam is necessary to rule out cancer of the rectum and to adequately evaluate your ovaries to detect ovarian cysts and cancers.
