Dr Halbretch is very competent. I ended up having surgery with him. I really trusted his judgement on my case. I do think that I wasn't fully prepare by his team for what was to come. They didn't set the correct expectations with me and I felt a bit rushed out of the office. But in the end I trusted and liked him as a doctor.

The nurses were great - very patient, friendly, and thoughtful. The doctor was very rushed and prescriptive. Hand on the door knob so that you felt like you couldn't ask him all of the questions you had. It felt very much like a factory machine line, and not like a personal interaction that empowered me to feel confident about the next steps the doctor suggested. I was left feeling like I had whiplash.

The personnel was very nice, there's no denying that! But waiting in an exam room for 25mins expecting the doctor wasn't great. But anyway, these things happen, and I understand that. My main concern is that I like to establish a relationship with my physicians, meaning I would expect my doctors to get to know me better and not just read a filled up form. Dr Halbrecht seemed nice for sure, and qualified, but after a 25mins wait, I would have liked him to try to get to know me, not just rush in and out. I left like I was just another name on a list...

Dr. Halbrecht was very dismissive of my complicated issues. I had previously had surgery in a foreign country and came to him for help. He did not adjust my medication schedule (despite half the medicines I was on not having FDA approval) and removed the bandaging from my leg with no support. He didn't seem interested in supporting my recovery. This was confirmed by my partner sitting in the waiting room who overheard Dr. Halbrecht berating his office staff for accepting me as a patient and not "screening me" beforehand. Dr. Halbrecht told his staff he didn't want patients who already had surgery. If you're looking for help after an emergency surgery in a foreign country, I would caution you to look anywhere else.

It was my first time meeting Dr. Halbrecht and you can feel his professional presence. He is a renowned surgeon in his field and you feel comfortable knowing he has a tremendous amount of experience. Besides being smart and logical he is also very friendly. And that feeling also extends to the office staff; lots of warmth and friendliness from the front desk personnel to the doctor's assistants. Dr. Halbrecht even asked me about a prior sports injury I had and offered to do an impromptu check-up on it just to make sure I was OK even though I was not there to see him for it.
