I LOVE Dr. Halpern, and everyone in the office. I have experienced constant migraines, and I have gone to every kind of doctor imaginable. I even tried a few other neurologists and nothing was working. I am so glad I landedon this office. I felt heard and understood, and she knew exactly what to do to fix the problem. I am basically migraine free now!

Dr. Halpern is a great doctor. She's extremely thorough and doesn't make you feel rushed during the appointment. I did have to wait a few minutes every time I visited the office, but it wasn't excessive. If you have any problemswith migraines there's really no one to see besides Dr. Halpern. Highly recommend.

Dr. Halpern has a lovely office with a friendly staff. I was well informed about my upcoming appointment and Dr. Halpern was very thorough during my visit. She really took the time to listen to my challenges, understand my specific needsand explain them in a way that I could understand. My next steps were very clear and reasonable. She also gave me great options that fit what I was comfortable with. As of now, I would recommend her to anyone! Looking forward to finding a solution with Dr. Halpern for these terrible migraines of mine.

The physician assistant was really great and personable, she made me very comfortable explaining my symptoms and just chatting. She was detailed in her questions and understanding my lifestyle. Dr Halpern was also very personable, it wasa casual conversation that was comforting and felt like they really understood and wanted to help. The PA looped the doctor in enough that although quick with her, didnt feel rushed or like anything was missing. It was a first appointment and we are looking for a treatment plan in a follow up, but they took care of my needs for the time being and gave a timely and easily understood action plan. I would recommend this doctor.

She knew medical history about me that I forgot I had provided and she was aware of it during my visit. She provided me with information about treatment that I was not aware even though i knew of this diagnosis foryears. She worked with me when my insurance cost too much for prescriptions. Although her office is very good, for example, called me to let me know when the doctor had an earlier appointment, the office can improve in other ways. Overall, 4/5 stars for her office and 5/5 stars overall.

It is probably not fair for me to review Dr. Halpern. I have had a headache, the same one, for 30 years, and it would take a miracle to get rid of it now. I also take a lot of medicationsfor other conditions, and it would be hard to add yet another medication on top of what I have. So, when Dr. Halpern told me that she didn't think that she could help me, it was a reasonable response. I just didn't care for her disposition, I felt that her office staff was somewhat rude, and I don't think that I would have gone back again even if she had been willing to take me on as a patient.

She was amazing! So thorough. I switched to her after my neurologist, a headache specialist, was difficult lot get a hold if and just not what I needed. Dr. Halpern was a a breathe of fresh air. Her receptionist was verynice but what I believed to be her MA it tech left something to be desired. Regardless, she was awesome and im glad I made the switch!

My visit with Dr. Halpern went as well as I could have imagined. She was, to my delight, everything I was hoping she would be. Intelligent, attentive, reasonable, thorough, and she has a holistic approach to treatment. I think this isparticularly helpful when dealing with a chronic illness that may have a series of triggers involved. I did not feel rushed; this office seems to prioritize making the patient feel that their care is very important. This is... exceedingly rare in my experience with a colorful variety of doctors in NYC over the last few years. Normally I expect to wait around in a room full of sick, miserable people who are mumbling either softly or loudly about how their appointment was over an hour ago. This office does not overbook. There were no miserable patients waiting. It was a quiet and pleasant waiting room... how bizarre! Also of note is the professionalism of Dr. Halpern's staff. They were very friendly and informative. And also very forgiving after I forgot to bring a rather substantial pile of paperwork to the office I was supposed to have filled out before the appointment. Stress worsens so many health conditions; I feel like when you find a good doctor, believe that they will take care of you properly, and discover that the staff is kind and competent, it alleviates a lot of stress. All this is to say that when I have a pleasant interaction with a doctor as I did with this one, the meeting itself has a positive impact on my mental state rather than hindering it. And many of us with chronic health issues know that can really make all the difference. I am greatly relieved to have found Dr. Halpern and look forward to her care!

Great experience. Dr. Halpern is patient, calm, and knowledgeable and gives you all the time you need to explain your medical story. She listens carefully, explains clearly, and answers questions without the least bit of condescension ordismissal. She works with you on a full game plan to get better with clearly listed next steps. I had told many other doctors that I suspected my headaches could be caused by a certain medicine I was on and they all dismissed me telling me the dose I was on was too small to have any effect. Dr. Halpern was the first to listen to me and taper me off the medicine. My headaches have decreased substantially since then. Highly recommend.

She is caring, thorough and knows her stuff. I can't say enough about her. I have been to several Neurologists who barely addressed by chronic migraines as a serious setback. Dr Halpern took copious notes on my first visit and spentthe time to go through all possible treatments. A rare find in NYC. I'm feeling better and happy to know she is available should I need her.
