I should start by saying that I don't see doctors often. I went to see Dr. Halbrecht for consultation on my right shoulder, which is sore from many years of remodeling work. I found her quite clinical and expedient. I wouldnot say she was warm and friendly. With hardly any eye contact she repeated a few things that I told her assistant and when I offered some more info she told me she didn't need me to talk, that she had her assistant's notes. She then pointed out the her assessment of my x-rays, had me perform a series of range of motion movements, made quick deductions, told me to get physical therapy from her approved office, and said to come back in month for further evaluation. I paid top dollar for her time. I did not like our interaction and wasn't exactly clear of what I could do for myself, as she passed me off to the physical therapist. I am not planning on going back to pay her for a follow up. I achieved my main goal of finding out if I had serious shoulder injury and will take care of my needs from here.

She gave me more information about my condition than I got from the previous two orthopedic surgeons combined. Not very good news, but it better to be informed.

Dr. Halbrecht is very knowledgeable and I trust that she gave me the best treatment available. I wasn't a big fan of being offered additional products, but I'm pretty frugal and it wasn't a problem to graciously refuse. The staff weregenerally good, however it was not appealing to overhear a staff member complaining about a patient. I thought that was pretty unprofessional. Despite these caveats, I think she's a great doctor and would visit her again.

Dr. Halbrecht seemed very knowledgable, but I did not get a lot of one on one time with her. Also, the Zocdoc scheduling system was wrong, and I had to change my appointment time.
