Dr. Halpren is the best. The only issue I've had is now that Providence has recognized what a talent he is and promoted him to a team leader appointments are harder to book with HIM. If I see another doctor he's around to offer his opinion, if necessary, but since he's been my PCP for about 15 years my preference would be to see him.

Dr. Haplerin is a very good doctor and I'm lucky to have him as my primary care provider. He listens and gives thought to my problems and I honestly think he cares about my health. He's one of the good ones for sure.

I have been seeing Dr. Halperin for the last thirteen years--when I can. As team leader he isn't as available as he once was and when the issue permits I wait for an opportunity to see him. He's great.

Although I visited the emergency room the day before with severe knee pain, no diagnosis was made, but x-rays and sonogram were done. After examining the knee, Dr. Halperin immediately diagnosed the problem and indicated the pain was brought about by severe dehydration. Lab tests were done that confirmed his diagnosis and after taking an anti-inflammatory medication and drinking water for 2 days the pain was gone. Follow up scheduled for 2 weeks to check kidney function that was not what it should be.

Dr. Halperin has been my PCP for over 12 years and he's GREAT. Providence has recommended his talents and added team leader to his responsibilities. I'm pleased for him, but it does seem it's more difficult to schedule an appointment with HIM.

Dr. Halperin and I have been trying to determine the cause for the particular symptoms I have been experiencing since June 2016. He ordered chest x-rays this last visit and it showed something that led to a recommendation for a chest CT which has yet to be approved. This is an insurance issue, not provider's fault.

I didn't get an appointment as soon as I liked because of bad weather and the provider's health. I usually get appointments within a very reasonable time. "Acts of God"
