Dr. Happen is very kind and knowledgeable about everything. She is very warm and caring provider. I see several doctors because I have Stage IV Breast Cancer and she is one of the nicest and most caring.

Words don't exist to praise Dr. Halpern enough. She is by far the best doctor I have ever had the privilege to have - she took a potentially very bad personal cancer and made everything "OK". PLEASE recognize her. If I can offer any additional info, please contact me personally.

WAited for 4 1/2 hours before being seen. Tried to find someone in hall but no one was even available to ask where Dr. Halpern was. She had emer. surgery but NO ONE ever told me & I sat on the room waiting. She explained her delay after finally seeing me but someone should have told me 10:00 appt. Finally seen @ 2:30.
