What Dr. Halperin’s Patients Say

review badge

“My husband came to Dr Halperin with extreme pain in his wrist. Dr Halperin was very attentive and made us feel completely comfortable, (my husband is usually very uncomfortable going to see any doctors) while explaining the results of my husbands injured hand. We found Dr. Halperin to be witty and very easy to talk to and he genuinely seems to care for his patients. If either of us are ever in need of an orthopedic specialist again in the future, we will definitely be seeing Dr. Halperin again!” – Review from Terrance and Crista, Healthgrades
