Dr. Halama quickly turns you over to his Nurse Practitioner first and if she deciedes your case is worth it then he will appear, being waiting over a month on test results! Still waiting!

This is the worst doctor I have visited in the Birmingham area. I have been to his office twice with a scheduled appointment (2 months in advanced) and the two times they have made me wait for more than 1 hour. The last time I went, the nurse practitioner had to see me because he had to go "vote"...more
