She conducted a thorough physical exam of my shoulder. She looked at my MRI and explained what was going on and what my options were to correct the injury. She took the time to answer all questions.
Dr. Halbrecht was wonderful. She took her time to understand the issue and understand my needs. She is very personable and knowledgeable. Office staff was very friendly.
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.
She should not be judged on the first visit. We will see.
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 were generally 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.
