Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Halpern appeared to be very experienced as the pap smear did not hurt at all (compared with some doctors) and she was able to address my concerns calmly. I also did not have to wait much. The only drawback is that she only does GYN (not OB anymore). I highly recommend her for GYN visits.
Such a great experience. She took the time to listen was so personable. Definitely going to be my new doctor
I did not feel she was appropriate in the way she spoke with me or with her staff. Also, after filling out pages and pages of forms with several repeated questions, she proceeded to ask me those same questions AGAIN during an in-person consultation.
She's awesome. Super approachable and knowledgeable. Makes you feel at ease.
She was really lovely and fast! Had a consultation first and then exam. Always was comfortable sharing personal information. Small operation, nice staff would recommend!
She was very kind.I am definetely switching to her as my new gynocologist!
Great physician. Easy to talk to and makes you feel comfortable. Very impressed.
Loved her! She made me feel so comfortable and the visit was so easy. I am planning on returning in the future for my annual and any other OB-GYN needs.
She is always so sweet and helpful. She makes you feel comfortable and is very knowledgeable.
The office staff are pleasant & the doctor is great -- non-judgmental, very informative, & super competent. She was recommended by a friend & I'll certainly be recommending her to others.
Dr. Halpern is just great. It was my first time seeing an OB-GYN, and I think shes a keeper. She was funny and attentive and sought to fix the problem right away. So far all her suggestions have worked.
I had a great visit! Dr. Halpern was very professional and made me feel quite comfortable.
Dr. Halpern is incredibly friendly and professional. She's very experienced, which is really nice for a patient. Unlike most doctors around the city, she doesn't rush you as a patient and gets to know the individual patient since she really cares; this is quite rare. I would definitely recommend her as a doctor.
My visit with Dr. Halpern was great! No waiting time. She was knowledgeable and easy to speak to. I definitely would recommend her!
Dr. Halpern was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful! I would definitely see her again.
Great doctor. Wonderful bedside manner. Kept me at ease the whole time.
I got to my appotment 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork and was seen immediately. Dr. Halpern was hilarious and made me feel extemely comfortable from the start, despite this being my first-ever annual. I will absolutely recommend her to friends and family!
This was my first visit to Dr.Halpern and she made me feel very comfortable. I went in for my annual pap and was taken into the exam room right away. The office is very clean too! Her staff was very helpful and friendly as well. I would definitely recommend this office.
She is the best. Really charming and smart and and and. A wonderful doctor and person.
She was an absolute delight and incredibly helpful. She made me feel very comfortable throughout the entire appointment!
Excellent and kind doctor. I can highly recommend Dr. Halpern. And she is funny too.
Was putting off finding a OB-GYN in the city for so long, found Meredith and don't know why I ever waited! She is great, super warm and welcoming and gets straight to the point. I have already recommended her to several friends!
Dr. Halpern is just the absolute best. As someone who is younger and has faced problems earlier on in life related to women's health, Dr. Halper is the very first doctor who not only has the skill and knowledge to tackle my medical problems, but has the most wonderful bedside manner. Guys, I laugh all of the way through the appointments. She makes you feel comfortable and cared for, working with you every step of the way. If you are looking for a doctor who is both medically skilled and just a wonderful human, this is the woman for you. Couldn't recommend her enough!
She's the best. No nonsense, spends time with you and is right on the dot. Follows through too. Wish she was my intern.
I have now seen Dr Halpern for over a year and she has been great. I wanted to have several appointments with her before writing a review. I came for a checkup and change of birth control and ended up having to come back a few times for other problems. Along the way she was informative, impartial and did not judge, listened to my questions and concerns. She was quick to inform me of any issues with my results, sometimes calling personally, and always gave me all of the necessary information about the procedures she had to do for my treatment. As a person she is quite straightforward, blunt and goes to the point, which is personally something I appreciate. Because I don't expect a physician to be over-nurturing and unnecessarily polite, she is a perfect fit for me. She is experienced and makes you feel at ease during any exams or procedures. She is now my OBGYN of choice in NY. The office person changes often and I had to call multiple times their billing office with questions, so that wasn't very convenient, but hey, this happens with every doctor office in this country, unfortunately.
She was amazing - my first gyno appt and she made sure to be as gentle and reassuring as possible
Great knowledgeable doctor, will come back.
Second annual check up with Dr. Halpern. She's great!
Great and friendly doctor! Makes you feel comfortable.
I love Dr. Halpern. She's straightforward and informative. The office is clean and the staff is friendly. She's probably one of my favorite doctors in NYC.
Shes fabulous. Direct, super smart, great explanations, nudges when you need it.
My dermatologist was not available, and I had a bit of an emergency & found Dr. Halpern recommended on Zocdoc. I'd like to complain about my visit. First, in asking me my general health questions (smoking, drinking, etc), she was initially professional, and then my answers were pre-empted with "of course you don't" & assumptions about the status & length of my relationship. Second, upon telling her my situation, she communicated that she'd hope I'd book an appt with her bc i wanted a doctor, not seeing a patient that makes her feel more like a backup. She assured me there was nothing bad about this, just that there was a patient-doctor relationship she thought I wasn't really seeing. I found my experience judgmental and quite off-putting. I'd encourage Dr. Halpern to approach appointments with a more open mind both in terms of the patient's background, as well as the patient's needs.
She is awesome.
Super personable and comforting!
I had an excellent experience with Dr. Halpern. Her bedside manner was kind and she had a very friendly and familiar demeanor, even though this was my first time seeing her. She listened to my concerns, didn't minimize my worries or opinions and had a good sense of humor. It seemed she had a great relationship with her nursing staff and they were friendly, as well. My prescription was called into the pharmacy immediately and I was able to subsequently pick it up within a couple of hours, which I was happy about because it was the end of the day and many offices would have waited until the morning. I can see why some of the reviews below may turn some people off (not knocking before coming into the exam room, not letting you know that she would be inserting the instrument, etc), so if you are looking for a doctor who is very by-the-book in the way that they do things, she might not be the best fit, but if you don't mind a little bit more of a casual experience, good treatment with genuine interest and attitude, Dr. Halpern is great.
Dr. Halpern is the 3rd gynecologist I've been to and the only one I ever go back to. She has the best bedside manner ever. I still remember my first visit with her two year ago where she called me into her office and got to know my concerns, needs and goals of the visit are before the physical examination, whereas the other OB/GYN offices just told me to take off my pants upon entering the office without even asking what I was there for. Dr. Halpern is very personable and approachable with a nice sense of humor. She is also not pushy with her recommendations and respects your decisions. She was also able to find something that none of the other gyne providers did (or at least none of them ever mentioned it to me). The wait time is also minimal which is another plus! I highly recommend Dr. Halpern, she is so underrated!
Dr. Halpern was enthusiastic, funny and very approachable. She answered my questions thuroughly and made me feel at ease. Highly recommend!
I love Dr. Halpern. She is personal and friendly. She makes me feel at ease and comfortable. This has been my second time with her and I'm referring all my friends to her.
She is great! First time with her and will definitely make her my regular obgyn. Quick (but made sure to ask all the right questions) and painless. Went on my lunch break and still had time to spare.
I don't know if I caught this doctor on a bad day, but she had terrible bedside manner. She berated me for going to a Planned Parenthood and pressured me into making her my OBGYN. I understand how long-term patient-doctor relationships can lead to better care, but I did not appreciate her approach.
Dr. Halpern is an excellent doctor. She is warm, open minded and creative. I recommend her to anyone who asks without reservation.
The doctor was incorrectly listed on Zoc Doc. So I showed up expecting to have a OBGYN prenatal appointment to find out the doctor does not practice prenatal care anymore. However the doctors was nice enough to spend time answering our questions before we left.
My visit was very helpful. Dr. Halpern took time to speak to me while still making sure my appointment was quick and easy. I'll definitely be going back!
The visit was very quick. The tech took my vitals in the hallway and not in an exam room. Strange. The doctor was nice but not very thorough. I was a new patient and have pcos so was expecting the usual thorough exam (without a pap bc I already had one for the year at a different office). Nope. I sat at her desk. She just refilled my prescription. If that's all you need then this place is for you.
I called her with a few questions about my birth control. She was extremely sarcastic and rude in her response, as if it were common sense. I was shocked. I've never been treated so poorly by a healthcare professional. I am DEFINITELY going to find a new gyno.
She is lovely! It was a great experience.
Dr Halpern's office has a very relaxed and casual feel. She makes you feel at ease with her bedside manner. She is extremely good at her diagnosis and very friendly.
She was very thorough...my first time with her and I feel comfortable.
I absolutely love Dr Harpern. I have been a patient of hers for about 3 years and found her on Zocdoc. She always makes me feel very comfortable and always reviews my history with her before the exam. She gives great explanations and I trust her completely. The office is in a strange location in Chinatown, but whatever, Dr Halpern is awesome! If she wasn't my doctor she'd be the kind of person I would hang out with and have a glass of wine and laugh.
Dr Halpern is so cool! Super professional, yet easy to talk to. I really enjoyed my visit and felt like I was being taken care of.
The best Great advice. Wonderful personality.
I felt very comfortable at dr. Halpern office, everyone were friendly and helpful. Doctor Halpern was professional and kind.
I have consistently experienced great service, expert advices and a welcoming environment.
Her office is very calm as she sees patients one at a time. Once I raised questions, she was good at describing things.
I never review anything online but Dr. Halpern was great! Started right on time, very friendly and professional, seemed immediately invested in my health.
Everyone at the office was very kind and helpful. I was a new patient, but everyone else who walked in was greeted with hearty hellos by name giving the feel of a welcoming environment with regular patients. The Doctor helped me feel less worried about my ailment, got through all the necessary work quickly, and provided my prescription that day.
Dr. Halpern is amazing. She made me so comfortable. She's friendly and tried to get to know me during our appointment. She answered all of my questions and put me at ease. She's very knowledgeable and down to earth. I'm so glad to have finally found a doctor I trust!
I feel like I finally found my doctor! Thank you Zocdoc for helping me to find my doctor!
I found her manner to be condescending and unprofessional. I felt uncomfortable and unsure.
Dr. Halpern was super helpful and took the time to sit with me and answer all of my questions
Dr. Halpern is so awesome! This was my first visit but I hope to have her as my OBGYN for as long as possible. She was very knowledgeable and informative about any questions I had and was genuinely interested. I appreciated her humor and discussion while undergoing my annual. So glad to have found her.
Meredith is fantastic!
I LOVE Dr. Halpern's office. They are so wonderful and caring, and what I really appreciate is that they always take the time to help me understand exactly what's happening during the procedure or exam. I wouldn't have trusted getting an IUD from any other provider.
I cannot recommend Dr. Halpern enough. She is so easy to talk to, so knowledgeable, and just a lovely person. She always takes an interest in my personal life, and discusses what options are best - specifically tailored for me. I can't imagine a better physician, and as an aspiring doctor myself, she's a role model.
I did not like her bedside manner. At first I thought it was just me, but after a few *terrible* incidents, I've decided to move on to better care with a more appropriate physician. The convenient location and no wait time was commendable - however I'd rather wait longer to be seen by a doctor who is a better fit for my care.
Quick easy very helpful and attentive! Easy to talk to, felt very comfortable.
Love her- great bedside manner
so personable, had worries and she made them disappear :)
Amazing doctor.. she was friendly and understanding. Made me feel comfortable.
Dr Halpern is great and was very understanding when I was running very late for my appointment. I felt comfortable the entire session.
After hopping around to different OB-GYN doctors in the past few years following a few negative experiences, I was pleased to find Dr. Halpern on ZocDoc, conveniently located near my office. I was very pleased with her bedside manner and consultation in her office prior to the examination. She addressed a few concerns I had, including my timing of family planning, and was very kind and thorough. Happy to have found an OB-GYN who takes time with their patients as opposed to some of the negative experiences I've had with previous doctors. Will definitely be back!
I've seen this doctor 4 times. The first time was just an annual where we talked extensively about birth control methods because I was thinking of switching mine to an IUD. She told me that I could come in next time to get an IUD. For the second appt, I selected "IUD Insertion" as the reason for a visit in ZocDoc. I got there and she had no idea why I was there and told me I had to call in for an appt and that their office doesn't pay attention to the reasons for visits in ZocDoc. I asked if I could leave because I didn't want to pay a copay to just talk again. She told me she was insulted that I would say that and that I was paying for her expertise. She obviously did not record that the last time I was in we talked extensively about birth control methods. When I finally got the IUD, she told me I would barely bleed at all. I called her 4 days later to say I was still bleeding, and she said "well, yeah, there's a foreign body in your cervix. What did you expect?" Being blunt is one thing, but Dr. Halpern is insensitive, and she's insensitive in a field that should require some level of sensitivity. She also has no memory of her appointments with patients nor records any important details of appointments with patients.
She was really nice and understanding. Answered all my questions and tended to all my concerns . I was seen immediately to getting there . The service was amazing ! This was my first time there and I will be going back !
Dr. Meredith Halpern is really great and I left her office feeling like I made a new friend. She answered all of my questions with clear and concise explanations. Nothing was left unsaid, and she made sure I knew what all of my options were. Making appointments with her is painless and her nurse/receptionist is kind and very helpful. I highly recommend going here!
She was simply amazing ! I really appreciated the time and care she devoted to me during my visit..Very helpful, thorough & amazing personality and spirit ! Makes going to the OBGYN "fun" for once. :) that is normally A relatively uncomfortable situation for women, but is anything but that with Dr. Meredith Halpern. Highly recommend !!!!
Was a quick, respectful, and comfortable experience.
Dr.Halpern is fantastic; she gave great attention to my concerns and spoke to me before conducting my annual check up. She was very helpful with answering questions and provided great bedside manner.
One of the easiest visits to the doctors. I went on my lunch break and was seen immediately upon arriving. I didn't have to do a bunch of unnecessary tests. Dr. Halpern was professional, friendly, open, and easy to talk with.
Wonderful person and doctor. Lovely bedside manner.
She's very kind, knowledgeable, funny!, professional, punctual, simply everything I would want in a doctor. Would recommend and will be seeing her again.
Dr. Halpern was incredible. She's outspoken and straight forward, while being friendly and helpful which is exactly what I want from my care provider. I'm happy to have found my new go-to gyno!
Amazing doctor. Made it super easy and fun!
So glad I found Dr. Halpern. She's a gem. A supportive, understanding, kind and experienced doctor. Pleasant, courteous staff. Got seen right away and never felt rushed by anyone.
She was very professional and has a progressive way of thinking.
Short wait times and great bedside manner. Takes the time to explain issues, causes and treatment.
Dr. Halpern is the first doctor I felt comfortable with. I've switched doctors for different reasons. But I never favored one enough to be consistent. I look forward to building a relationship and repour with the Dr. Halpern. She immediately earned my trust when she told me what I needed to hear instead of what I wanted to hear. She took the extra mile to make sure I was ok and didn't depend solely on my "perfect" blood tests.
Dr Halpern is one of the best doctors I have ever seen. A number of years ago I was having trouble getting pregnant and she was incredibly reassuring and positive (unlike my previous OBGYN). When I did get pregnant she was very patient with my fears that I would miscarry. Once I had my son I was sad I wasn't going to see her so often! Overall she's very easy to talk to and attentive.
Amazing Dr, so kind, friendly and highly professional. Would highly recommend her!
Dr. Halpern is great! Love her office.
Really appreciated Dr. Halpern's bedside manner and she put me at ease for my first real gyno appointment. Really great!
Lovely office, little to no wait. Dr. Halpern has a great bedside manner, is easy to talk to and makes her patients feel comfortable. I highly recommend this doctor.
She was very personable, easy to ask questions, listened intently and asked all the right questions to the patient. She also made the visit for a first timer easy!
Dr Halpern was great! I waited for less than 5 minutes before being seen and she was thorough yet quick during the appointment too. Very relaxed bedside manner as well. Would definitely recommend her!
Meredith made me feel confutable. She was very kind, understanding and professional. I would highly recommend her!
Dr. Halperin was so professional and kind. I needed an IUD removed and unlike my previous gyno, she has a really beautiful and clean office and extremely friendly and professional staff. We talked about my medical history and she made suggestions instead of being pushy, which is extremely refreshing. I am switching to Dr. Halpern as my new gyn and I would highly recommend her to anyone else!
I would very strongly discourage anyone from booking an apptointment with this incredibly unprofessional and informed "doctor". I went in for an issue that wouldn't resolve with OTC nor did it seem like any other issue I had. When I visited, she took a test and said she would call within a few days. It was prior to the holidays and she asked how long I would be in town and assured me I would absolutely hear back before I left. I never did. I called after the holiday and left a voicemail - no return call. I called again days later, left another voicemail - no return. I called again today and the receptionist put me on hold and finally came back and said "negative". Well, negative to what? I'm still having the same issue with no resolution - the promise from the doctor was to call with results because she wanted to start with ruling out the issue I had before and then start to trouble shoot from there. When I asked to speak to the doctor from the receptionist - she was irritated that I was frustrated with my experience. She had a huge attitude and said "it was NEGATIVE, what do you want me to say?" I said that we had an entire discussion about what was going to happen after I left the office and that I took her recommendation of trying an OTC product which I have for 2 weeks with no improvement. Instead of being helpful or suggesting alternatives, she was defensive and rude. Further - the office is incredibly dirty - book with CAUTION.
This is the first time that I see a doctor alone as a temporary resident. My experience is perfect. She is quite friendly and considerate. What's more, she even has discovered something else and had doctor recommendations and references for me. Super sweet. Highly recommended.
Dr. Halpern is nice but not on top of her game. She didn't really give me any help with my symptoms, just said that "sometimes you feel bad". That's not good enough for me. She didn't seem to care that I was suffering from my symptoms, just that there was nothing she could do. I appreciate the honesty, but I feel she should have been able to provide me with more and better help.
Dr Halpern always makes me feel comfortable and relaxed in my visits. I was nervous and she calmed me down just by talking throughout the procedure. She's extremely professional and lovely. Would recommend her to anyone!!
Dr. H was truly fabulous! Made me feel Comfortable and was open to listening to all my concerns and out them at ease. I would recommend for anyone looking for that experience. Feel good knowing I have a good OBGYN in the city! A little side note, she very personable and walks through all the questions, so no need to fill out the Lee forms online in order to "save time"
Dr. Halpern is great! I've seen her twice now and she's a very sociable and straighforward doctor, which is something I appreciate. Her office is clean and modern and her assistants are nice as well.
The doctor was very thorough and sweet.,
Dr. Halpern's consultation was very informative. She answered all the questions I had and gave me the information needed to make the right decision about birth control. She made me feel comfortable before and during my exam. She even told me the room was my "safe space", which made me feel nice. I would recommend her and will definitely be returning.
Loved her! She was friendly and put me at ease instantaneously. She answered all my questions and was able to explain things I hadn't even thought of asking. Glad I've finally found my go-to OB-GYN!
i've struggled to find a good ob-gyn in NYC and she was AMAZING. I'm going to spread the gospel about this one !
Dr. Hapern was recommended to me by a friend. I'd never been to the gyno before, so I was nervous. She made me feel so comfortable, she was really knowledgeable, and she gave me all the time I wanted. She really listened to me and we talked through several options and possibilities for my needs. She was so respectful. I'm so happy I went to her and I'll never dread an appointment again. Highly recommend her!
Dr. Halpern was extremely knowledgable and helpful. I was nervous going to a new Gyno, but she made me feel comfortable right away. The appointment was quick, but thorough, which is what I look for. I highly recommend her. Also, her staff is great!
Very patient and understanding. I felt comfortable asking all of my questions and will definitely be coming back to her office for my next gyn appts.
She did not respect my personal space. She did not knock on the door before entering the examination room after I had changed. She did not tell me what she was going to do next and pretty much just started poking and prodding everywhere. I felt very uncomfortable and have never been treated by a gyno that way.
Super fast, easy appointment and Dr. Halpern was friendly and professional. Great experience as a first time patient. Would highly recommend!
I had two appointments with Dr. Halpern, to talk about and then insert an IUD. Both times went great. She listened to what I wanted and answered questions and explained how everything would work and what changes to expect in my body. I was really happy with my experiences. The doctor and her staff were quick and thorough, which is what I like in a doctor appointment. I was comfortable with her during my initial exam and during the insertion. I was totally at ease, will continue to see her, and would recommend her to other women.
Dr. Meredith Halpern is the best doctor I ever had. She is very professional. I live going to her office, very friendly front desk woman, Dr. Halpern makes me always laugh, she is fun. I would never exchange her for someone else. Highly recommend her to all women out there.
Dr Halpern is always great. She and her staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
She was very personable and explained things in detail. Made me feel extremely comfortable and addressed all my concerns. Wait time was minimal.
No complaints! She was very knowledgable and friendly.
I had a great experience at this practice. Dr. Halpern was very down to earth and I felt at ease discussing my concerns with her. I think I've found a new OB/GYN!
Dr. Halpern is personable, friendly, and professional. She cares about my well being, and I feel comfortable discussing whatever issues I have and feel confident that she will give me an honest and reliable answer.
She was great. Made me feel comfortable. Very sweet, highly recommend.
She is great! Friendly, smart and wants to make sure you get the best care.
I love her! She's a great doctor, and has a welcoming staff. I even got cake! But seriously, she's a keeper.
Very professional and pleasant. I reccomend her.
I love Dr Halpern! She is very down to Earth, friendly and approachable, explains things in terms you can understand and not judgmental (surprisingly there are quite a few judgmental gynos out there!) She is one of my favorite docs!
I think I was double booked; normally I'm seen much more quickly. But Dr. Halpern is great and I'd much rather wait a half hour to see her than switch doctors.
Excellent doctor: knowledgeable, cordial and very committed to her patients.
First visit was amazing. Doctor is nice, knowledgeable, makes you feel comfortable. Place is clean and assistants helpful, and the wait was just a couple of minutes. Would recommend her to just anyone.
By far the fastest and most comfortable exam ever! Dr. Halpern was very friendly and knowledgeable.
she is great!
Dr. Halpern was amazing! I was able to come directly into her office for the initial consult (not just a cold examining room), and I left feeling like she cared about me as an entire person. I'm really lucky to have found her.
Best gyno I have been to! She made me feel so at ease and was so chill/non judgemental. After my appt, I immediately texted all of my girlfriends and recommended they switch- just fantastic!
She was great! Very funny and personable.
Dr. Halpern is always very friendly and personable. Even though I had only seen her once before, she treated me like a long time patient, making what can be an uncomfortable experience very easy.
Meredith is wonderful. I highly recommend her!
My visit was fantastic. Dr. Halpern actually took the time to learn more about me, my health history, and make me comfortable with the visit after not having had a pap smear in a couple years.
She's so nice! I was kind of nervous but she made me feel so comfortable :) Everything is really clean and the other girls are really attentive.
Dr. Halpern is very professional and very sweet! I feel comfortable when I see her for my OB GYN visits. Highly recommended :)
Dr. Halpern was great! I've spent 3 years trying to find an OBGYN in NYC that I feel comfortable with and trust, I've finally found her! :)
It was my first visit to Dr Halpern and I was very pleased with the experience, which I had good expectations for based on the ZocDoc reviews. She was kind, knowledgable and efficient.
Never followed up with results. Didn't feel like a professional doctor visit.
I am obsessed with Mer Halpern. This woman is the sweetest, funniest, best GYN ever and I'm so happy I found her! I've never felt more comfortable spreading my legs for a doctor, as she made the whole process easy and stress-free. Her bedside manner is delightful and she is an overall wonderful human. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! Thank you Mer!
Pretty much the best doctor I've been to hands down. I have had some terrible experiences in the past, but Dr. Halpern was so matter of fact and took the time to explain the tiniest details to me, she even drew me a picture! Also I was in and out in about an hour, testing included. Great experience!
She and her nurses are welcoming. She listened to what I needed and talks to you like a friend. I've only been twice but she talks like we've known each other for years.
Love her! She is the best!
She's really great, she noticed my concern for my health and even though thankfully nothing obvious was wrong she took my concerns into consideration and checked me out anyway. Her staff is very nice too.
Dr. Halpern was very helpful and straight to point. She listened to all my concerns and offered advice as needed. I will definitely be sticking with her as my OBGYN!
Super quick without feeling rushed. Her nurse/front desk person was very polite. She talked and asked me a bunch of questions during my appointment to create conversation. I personally like that and it makes me feel way more comfortable, some people might be adverse to that but I'm not so it was a huge positive. Definitely doesn't have a rigid or stiff personality which, again, some people might not feel totally comfortable but, for me, it definitely made me feel like I will want to see her again next year!
Dr. Halpern was fantastic. She made me feel so comfortable and was so open about all discussions. She instilled a lot of confidence in her abilities and was very helpful to discuss which medications were truely necessay. Definitely one of my favorite doctors that I've ever seen, and am so happy to have her as my gynecologist.
The dr was kind enough but it was clear that she didn't support my wants for a baby at a mature age. I felt her personal conviction was more important to her than my needs and wants as her patient. I won't mind going to her for a regular check up but I will never discuss personal things with her ever again and would not recommend anyone to see her - not because she isn't kind but because she should ALWAYS consider me first regardless of her own options. I do not want to feel bad about myself just because she doesn't agree with me and there wasn't a medical issue at all.
Dr Halpern took the time to thoroughly explain everything being done in my procedure, including any possible outcomes. She will call you no matter the news and always kept me updated. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new OBGYN.
She is the best! Friendly, knowledgeable, concerned, sincere, caring and easy to talk to about anything.
Dr. Halpern was amazing! She's personable, thorough, professional and made me feel as though she had all the time in the world for me. I'd had difficulty getting in touch with my previous GYN about test results so I was looking for another caregiver that would communicate with me. Dr. Halpern was that person. We had my results faxed over the next day and she called me early afternoon to explain the test results. I will definitely be going back!
She has a great personality and treats you kind.
Considering how personal it is to see a gyno I couldn't have been happier. She made me feel so comfortable and safe. I would highly recommend her and will absolutely use her in the future!
Dr. Halpern made me feel so comfortable in the office. She made the appointment a breeze!
Dr. Halpern is a wonderful doctor. She took the time to talk about a couple options with me regarding family history. She was very thorough and made me feel comfortable. I will definitely be returning in the future.
Friendly, efficient without being hurried.
She seemed rushed and didn't take the time to really listen to me.
Answered all my questions and quick
Very personalable, makes you feel very comfortable
Dr Halpern is the best!! Always super friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her!
She was engaged in learning about me as a new patient. I felt comfortable with her. Girls in the office were very nice. Overall as pleasant as a gyn exam is going to be. I would definitely go back.
Dr. Halpern made me feel extremely comfortable and was very kind and understanding. I highly recommend her!
She is an awesome doctor. Every step of the way she let's you know what she about to do and what ur about to experience. So happy to have found Dr. Helpern, my search is OVER!
She was wonderful
Dr Halpern is warm, frank and easy to talk openly to without risk of judgement. Going to the gyno is not something I usually look forward to, but she made it an altogether pleasant experience, and I even walked out feeling a little more empowered about my own sexual and reproductive health. Would definitely recommend!
The two times I've seen doctor Meredith I felt like the consultation was somewhat rushed and even though she seems very knowledgeable, she does not show much interest in me as a patient. This morning while I was trying to engage a conversation with her about my decision to start trying for a baby, she was checking her personal emails. Very impersonal, I don't get the impression that she cares about me, which is something I look for in a gynecologist.
Nice doctor, easy to talk to. Clean office and nice staff- was in and out in less than an hour.
I've been a patient of Dr. Halpern for many years and she's terrific. Visits are always great, she's very professional as well as very caring and friendly.
She was super helpful, answered all of my questions and made me feel very comfortable. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Halpern is very sweet and genuine. As soon as I came to the office, the receptionist was very sweet, as well as the nurse. Dr. Halpern talked to me as if she'doesn't known me awhile, which made me very comfortable. She explained options and went over all medical history. Very professional and down to earth. Would recommend her to others.
Felt extremely comfortable. Felt confident that my needs were being addressed
Professional yet friendly. She definitely put me at ease.
As a woman in my 30's with no plan for children, I loved Dr. Halpern and her no-nonsense approach to women's health. No judgement, great information, and my IUD insertion was WAY easier than I expected.
She was good. Was a very quick visit. Had good conversation.
Dr. Halpern was extremely rude with horrible bedside manner. I went to her with concerns and left the office in tears because she was so harsh and unsympathetic. Worst of all, she was exceedingly impatient and gave short, curt answers to all of my questions, acting like I was wasting her time.
Dr. Halpern is so kind and friendly, and always makes me feel really comfortable!
I waited only as long as it took me to fill out an intake form -- VERY refreshing! Clean and modern office and exam room + Dr Halpern's kind and affable bedside manner made this the most enjoyable gyno appt I've had in ages.
A very positive experience. Friendly and comfortable atmosphere at the reception and the office.
Dr. Halpern was very professional and empathetic to my situation. I appreciated her sensitivity and humor as it seemed genuine. I would highly recommend her for all gynecological issues.
Best experience I've had with a doctor period. Really friendly and personable.
Dr. Halpern was the most friendly, as well as super patient and helpful in answering my slew of questions. Waited less than 5 minutes before being called in for filling out paperwork/questionnaire of medical history with Dr. Halpern herself, not a nurse. Loved her!
Professional but personable. Made me feel comfortable during both interview and exam. Would recommend.
We are lucky we shifted to DR Meredith!! After one year of TTC, I saw her once, we agreed on a plan (test and treatment) for the next month. One month later, we are pregnant! Can't be grateful and thankful enough for her support!
She was super casual and appeared to be extremely uneducated. Had no idea about Zika in relation to pregnancy.
Loved her! So smart and made me feel relaxed. I feel confident under her care!
I saw Dr. Halpern for a routine exam, and she was a great doctor. She saw me right away and was wonderfully friendly, attentive, and helpful. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Halpern is the best! Highly recommend!
She's great- knowledgable, funny, and she won't make you feel uncomfortable during the more typically uncomfortable moments at the obgyn.
She is super personable and straight forward. Loved it.
Dr. Halpern was exceptional. She is very personable and nice and has great bedside manner. 1.5 years later and I finally found my gynecologist in the city. Highly recommend her.
Liked Dr. Halpern, but was kind of grossed out by the facility (very run-down building). Her assistant also did not seem to know what she was doing, and Dr. Halpern has to correct her a lot – which was slightly concerning considering I was having a minor surgical procedure done. The assistant also did not follow up with my to let me know Dr. Halpern had everything she needed and I was okay to leave – I had to get up and go find someone to ask if I was good to go.
Dr. Meredith Halpern is great! She made me laugh, listened to all my questions and concerns and talked to me during the exam (annual pap) so that I felt relaxed and at ease. She can make an awkward situation seem quick and painless. She's very honest and I adore that in a Doctor. Following up with her in a month and looking forward to it! Her staff was super friendly and helpful as well.
no wait time and she's great! she always knows what shes doing. Very happy to be her patient!
Does not seem very knowledgeable .. had an extremely traumatic IUD experience. Every time I came in, I had to remind her what my case was, what happened last time I visited, and what I was in for. Did not do any prep before I saw her at all. Will never go back to this doctor.
Dr. Halpern was great! No wait to see her, really nice and funny and made me feel extremely comfortable. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Halpern is great – she is so friendly and immediately made me feel very comfortable. Everyone I interacted with in the office was friendly, timely, and knowledgable. I'm so glad to have found Dr. Halpern and will definitely go back
Amazing. Super sweet , very attentive. Right on time with scheduling. Will definitely continue to go back .
Dr. Halpern was extremely friendly and professional! No wait time, extremely helpful and welcoming staff I'm very happy I found this doctor!
Dr. Halpern is the best doctor I have ever had. She is excellent at what she does and I feel as if I could tell her anything (which is an invaluable quality for an OBGYN). Her office is run very well - always on time and always comfy. Truly cannot say enough about her overall.
I loved being around her and wish I'd found her sooner because it took a while to find someone so great!
It was a great visit! I felt very comfortable. The doctor and the staff were very polite and friendly.
She was great! Made me laugh and made it comfortable.
I love Dr. Halpern! I have been seeing her now for a few years. She helped me with quickly diagnosing and addressing some minor infertility issues in 2012, and then later on treated and monitored me throughout my pregnancy and delivered my beautiful baby boy. She no longer does OB work but I still see her for GYN visits because she is simply the best. She's quick, supportive, friendly, caring, humorous, and non-judgmental. I'll see her as long as I can and have recommended her to many people-- she's awesome!
Thorough, knowledgable, and personable doctor! As long as I'm in NYC I'll return to her.
Made me feel very comfortable for a not so comfortable appointment.
Dr Halpern was fantastic. She made me feel at ease, and the appointment went by quite quickly. I'll happily go back to her again for my next exam.
Saw me promptly, seems competent and explained certain things well. Pretty good bedside manner while seeing me, although didn't ask if I had other questions, and was attempting to walk out the door while I was still asking her a question at the end of the visit.
Really kind and friendly made the process very comfortable and explained things clearly.
My first visit was a little rough , likely due to the fact that I was 40 minuets late. Dr. Halpern was GREAT!
She was great. No complaints.
Very patience and kind doctor. She definitely has a great personality and I didn't have to wait to see her. I definitely recommend!
She was very helpful and made me very comfortable right away! Will definitely go back!
Dr Halpern and her staff were very friendly and professional. I felt very comfortable.
Coolest gyno ever!
Excelent doctor. Funny, caring, trusting!
She's just the best. So happy I found her.
LOVED the doctor. HOwever, had to wait almost an hour (about 55 minutes) to see her....
I love this woman. She is smart and hilarious.
Dr. Halpern is wonderful - she's incredibly knowledge and professional, and I can be honest with her completely - she doesn't pass judgement and cares deeply about the patient/Doctor relationship. She takes women's health seriously a d spends time with you to make sure you understand everything happening. Highly recommended for all women looking for a real, smart, honest professional to see for all lady-related issues!
Dr. Halpern was informative when I had asked about birth control options, and more importantly, she was honest about the pros and cons of each option. I felt comfortable in her office because she and her staff were welcoming but not overbearing.
Dr. Halpern was fantastic. She made me feel very comfortable and listened to my needs and was very thorough in her explanations to me. It's a bit strange that she's in the middle of Chinatown, but definitely worth the trip. Highly recommended!
Won't go anywhere else. She's the best doctor, crazy nice and doesn't make me feel weird about anything weird.
I love her, she's great! Nothing else to say!
It was. Y first visit with Dr. Halpern, I came 15 mins late because I had a difficult time finding the place. She spent less than 10 mins with me, asked questions unrelated to my visit and made me feel bad about asking questions after the exam. She said I have to ask the before the Exam and was unprofessional. Left the room with out saying goodbye. Overall, I did not like her. Unprofessional, unpleasant and I will NOT go back.
Very professional with a personal touch. She explains everything clearly and concisely, and was full of recommendations. Love her!!
Did not feel comfortable at all and bedside manner was poor. I left feeling upset and annoyed. Also the waiting area plays really bad, loud techno music.
I always try to avoid giving negative feedback b/c anyone can have an off day. That said, my experience with Dr. Halpern was so bad that I feel compelled to prevent other women from signing up for the same. Dr. Halpern was not interested in answering my questions about how my birth control options might impact a pre-existing stomach condition. She quickly dismissed my concerns and said it's all trial and error. Ok fine. That was before the physical exam, where *while in the stirrups* Dr. Halperin said: 'Gosh, you are so uptight. Loosen up.' Pretty shocking comments from someone in women's health care. & To make things even more uncomfortable, when I notified the office that I wanted to have my records transferred, it took three attempts before they finally released them to my new ObGyn. Avoid at all costs!
She's awesome, very engaged and concerned.
I have never had a better experience with an OBGYN. Dr. Halpern was incredibly attentive and brought me into her office to chat about my history before the exam. She was very knowledgeable and made me feel so comfortable throughout. If I ever were to have an issue, I'd feel confident that I would be able to get ahold of her and get help right away. Definitely going back!
Dr. Halpern is honest and makes me comfortable when I visit her. She a great personality and is approachable :)
My experience at the doctor was Very Good!!! The doctor is knowledgeable and patient. I didn't feel rushed and she answered all of my questions. The staff is Great!!! Very warm and professional. The office is very sheik, clean and so comfortable. I feel like I'm in good hands!!!
Was great! Best experience I've had with a provider in a long time. So pleased to have found her!
I loved Dr. Halpern. She was nice, professional, and took a real interest in getting to know me and my medical history. The office was decorated nicely and had a modern feel. The wait time was very brief which is always a plus! Her staff was very friendly as well. I definitely will continue to see her as my GYN.
She and her office staff were excellent Diagnosis right away great bedside manner Highly recommend this dr and this office.
Beautiful, clean and quiet office. Great environment. Would highly recommend.
Dr Halpern was fantastic! Non judgemental, friendly and everything was super quick (in and out within 30 mins including check in-plus it was my first visit to her). I'd recommend her to anyone who gets nervous going to the gynecologist (like me).
Kinda funky but in a good way. It was my first time so always a bit nervous in these. I'll have to try her again to see if she will stay my primary GYN.
The wait time was close to an hour but, Dr. Halpern was wonderful and extremely easy to talk to. I will definitely be seeing her again.
I told the doctor about pains I was having and she responded that my concern was ridiculous because the pains were normal for everyone and expected and said I should just get used to it, instead of checking it out. She then was so distracted talking about her upcoming vacation during my exam that she disposed of the results on accident and had to do the exam twice, and she was not gentle.
She's fabulous. Not a long wait time, she's friendly and personable. I completely recommend her.
Dr. Halpern was very nice and seems very profanational. It was my first visit with her and she made me feel very comfortable.
Very professional, highly recommended!
She's very knowledgable and very friendly. I'm so glad I found her!
She was personable and very helpful! Would go to her again.
She was very friendly and funny and made me feel comfortable. I hate Pap smears or anything involving a speculum but she kept my mind off it by chatting with me -- before I knew it the whole thing was over! Best experience w a gyno.
She was extremely helpful and made me feel VERY comfortable. Not to mention, she is funny!!
Practice was very easy to find, clean, and was seen right away! Dr. Halpern was professional, kind, and informative. I would definitely recommend her.
She Katherine best! Very friendly and witty! She told me great stories about doing some medical work charity in El Salvador, my parent's home country! ????
Absolutely phenomenal doctor. I have awful anxiety about visiting the ob/gyn and Dr. Halpern made me feel very comfortable. She is an amazing brilliant doctor. Very knowledgeable and patient. She sat down with me and heard my concerns and talked me through everything.
Dr. Halpern was friendly, up on pop culture and made me laugh the whole appointment. She was super welcoming and laid back, informative and kept it real. She made me feel comfortable and like I'd been a patient of hers for a while. Her staff were friendly and kind as well. She's my new OB/GYN and I definitely recommend her.
There is a reason why this doctor has plenty of availability! Her bedside manner is nothing shy of horrific. I wouldn't send my worst enemy to see her. No people skills, rude and aggressive. Read her Yelp reviews before you go and then make the right decision and decide to see someone else.
So personable and professional. Came in for more of an emergency situation, but changing to Dr. Halpern as my primary OB-GYN because she was SO lovely to interact with. Very highly recommend!
Good doctor, makes you feel comfortable and at ease.
Meredith was personable, empathetic and quick. Great doctor and office is easy to get to.
All staff at this surgery were lovely. Dr Halpern was extremely friendly and professional and put me at ease straight away. A great experience.
I really like her. It was my first time with a female doctor and I really felt comfortable with her.
Dr. Halpern was great. She was very personable and easy going. she was also knowledgable and took a lot of time to sit down with me as a patient. Would definitely recommend her
A very thorough and easygoing annual. She's super nice but down to earth and matter of fact. I'll definitely be coming back!
I just went to Dr. Halpern's office today. First off I want to say the 2 young ladies that were working with her both at the front desk and in the back, were EXCELLENT. As for Dr. Halpern, she made me very comfortable and made my examination so much more relaxed. I appreciated the personalities of every single person I encountered at her office and will def be back.
I was running late due to unforeseen circumstances and I felt terribly for it. Dr. Halpern still saw me and treated me with every respect. She's professional and kind and definitely listens to what you have to say. Very nice office too!
Great and easy visit!
I had my first visit with Dr. Halpern yesterday and it was great. Seeing a new doctor, especially an OB-GYN can be awkward but Dr. Halpern knows how to make an uncomfortable experience comfortable. She was very personable, attentive, and timely. I've already recommended her to friends looking for OB-GYNs in NYC.
Pre-filling the form might have helped reduce the wait time.
Very quick, easy, doesn't make you feel uncomfortable in anyway. Highly recommend!
She was amazing and so was the rest of the staff. Really friendly and nice environment. It was my first visit with her and first time at a gyno and she answered all my questions and concerns. I highly recommend her she was the best!
I felt comfortable talking to her and would definitely go back to see her again with any concerns.
Amazing experience with Dr. Halpern, will be returning
She's the best! Straightforward, non judge-mental, easy to talk to.
It was great! Dr. Halpern has a very easy-going demeanor, and I love that I was seen right away. I was there for my annual gyno appointment, and I was in and out of the office within 20 minutes!
Very friendly as well as the staff. I am glad I found this office.
I'm so glad that I was fortunate enough to meet & work with Dr. Halpern yesterday. She answered all of my questions, explained the process for the examination and was efficient. Highly recommended. Couldn't be entrusted to a better doctor. Needless to say, as a result, I officially have a new "Lady Doctor" :-)
Dr. Halpern is super nice and very informative. Clean office environment and I was seen immediately. Highly recommended.
Super genuine, nice, and made me feel very comfortable. Would return to her in a heartbeat and reccomend!
As a new resident to NYC, I was looking for a new OBGYN and couldn't have been happier with my choice. Would reccommend Dr. Halpern to anyone!
Dr. Halpern was very friendly, professional, and efficient.
I visited this doctor 3 times and had unsatisfactory experience. I found the doctor rude and not helpful. I am now looking into a new obgyn.
Dr. Halpern was so warm and easy to talk to. She addressed all of my questions and concerns, and while we were chatting, I felt no discomfort from the procedure that I had been dreading. I felt like I was in great hands, and would definitely recommend her! Glad that I've found such an amazing OB/GYN
This was my first visit with Dr. Halpern. I had a great experience. She is very nice, makes you feel super comfortable, and is super professional. I didn't have to wait to be seen at all. I would definitely be coming back to Dr. Harpern in the future and will recommend her to some of my friends.
Was very disappointed with my doctor's visit this afternoon. I was uncertain as to what was wrong with me, but I was experiencing pain, something felt off and I wanted to get it checked out. When I explained that to the doctor, I was treated like an uninformed idiot and a bad attitude. Wouldn't recommend.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Halpern, and after many negative experiences at each gynecologist that I have visited, I really wasn't expecting much. On that note, I am so glad that I found Dr. Halpern. I walked in, all my zocdoc forms were printed, and they took me in exactly at my appointment time. Dr. Halpern saw me immediately, and made me feel very comfortable. She was patient and thorough in getting my history, and helped me relax during the exam. Her office staff was excellent: the nurse was very capable, and the receptionist was efficient. After years of dreading my annual exam, I am so relieved to have found Dr. Halpern.
I've been going to Meredith Halpern for 10 years and i think she is a great doctor.
Dr Halpern makes an awkward situation comfortable,she is both personable and knowledgeable which is often hard to find in a doctor... I will definitely be going back to her.
Meredith and her staff where all super friendly, overall very light hearted and professional. Good bedside manner, made me feel comfortable right away and I even had a couple laughs :) While there they went out of their way and let me see their sonographer for a ultrasound because I was worrying about a medical complication they did not think I had to begin with, turns out they were right. I really appreciate them hearing me out and double checking to be on the safe side.
Dr. Halpern was an outstanding doctor. She was able to help me understand a misdiagnosis I had been given in the past, and her and her team were friendly, clear, and made me feel thoroughly comfortable.
Dr. Halpern was fantastic! She was very helpful and made me feel comfortable. The person working at the front desk wasn't very friendly, but everyone else was great.
Dr. Halpern is great! What a lovely person. Both her and her staff are informative, personable, and helpful. Very short wait, too. Been raving about Dr. Halpern, recommending her to friends. She is down to earth and readily explained anything I didn't understand or wanted to know more about.
Dr. Halparn was amazing. She really listened and addressed my concerns. I would definitely recommend her.
Dr. Halpern was very friendly and talkative. She made what can be an unpleasant experience quick and comfortable.
Dr Halpern was very knowledgable, efficient, fun, and sympathetic. Everything I hoped from my gyno. 10/10 would recommend.
Dr. Halpern was personable and professional. She was great to talk to and was not critical of my lifestyle choices. The exam was quick and painless. Highly recommended.
Informative and pleasant.
Very cordial and to-the-point. Dr. H is very friendly, warm, and, thorough, and funny and makes you feel at ease. Also a very nice staff that was flexible with my schedule. I had to move my appointment last minute and they accommodated me in the same day! Only complaint was that the bathroom was a bit dirty.
I was super late and they accomidated me. Dr Halpern is very sweet and thorough. Easy to talk to
It was great, very informative on my condition.
She is amazing and very understanding.
Dr. Halpern is great. She makes an otherwise dreaded appointment comfortable. Dr. Halpern eases your mind with her kind, nurturing, and human bedside manner and then of course medically tests and treats you just as effectively.
My appointment was at 1pm. I arrived at 1245pm and was filling out the remaining paperwork for 5 minutes (filled out other paper on ZocDoc before I arrived) then I was seen at 1:00pm. The office staff person was attentive and efficient. Dr. Halpern was welcoming, personable, and funny. She wasn't rushing but wasn't wasting my time either. Would recommend her to anyone in the city.
She was very personable and her assistant was very professional. The office was clean and quiet and I felt like they were quite thorough with my check up.
Dr. Halpern is terrific! Direct, great communicator, took lots of time to understand me and my history.
Great staff overall, Dr Halpern is nice, easy to talk to, and made me feel at ease throughout the visit. Will definitely come back in the future.
I had a great experience at Dr. Halpren's office. The wait time was short, but I never felt rushed. Dr. Halpren is very friendly, personable and easy to talk to. The staff is also super friendly and helpful.
Loved her. Best OBGYN I've ever been to. Professional, kind, and easy to talk to.
I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Halpern. I have a pretty severe phobia of doctor's offices, even when it comes to routine check-ups. Dr. Halpern immediately set me at ease with the genuineness of her caring and her laid-back nature. She could not have been more understanding and patient with me. I will most definitely return to her in the future.
I was very nervous coming for my appointment and Dr. Halpern made me feel comfortable right away. She actually picked up on my nerves and by addressing them helped me enjoy the appointment. Even with a slight scheduling issue both her and her staff were incredibly friendly.
Dr. Halpern was very friendly and made me feel relaxed from the moment I met her.
Super chill and friendly. Dr. Halpern was easy to talk to and very attentive and knowledgable. The hospital staff were all friendly and nice as well
She was very welcoming and put me at ease. she was ready to answer any questions.
Meredith was absolutely wonderful. She made me feel very comfortable throughout the whole appointment and it was also very quick and easy. I left feeling like I made a new friend! Highly recommend her.
Dr. Halpern was great! I hadn't seen a physician in a few years and she put me right at ease. Glad I found her.
Very nice, made a usual tense visit to the dr. a very nice experience.
Dr. Halpern is fabulous! She is down to earth, relatable, comfortable & efficient. We got through everything I wanted to talk about. This apt was actually a joy--and you can't say that for all OBGYN sessions. Cannot recommend enough!
Dr. Halpern is the best, I've been seeing her for years now and really appreciate her straightforward manner. I would recommend her to anyone, especially people who normally hate going to the doctor's office!
She was the best gynecologist I've ever had. Kind, funny and very professional.
Great dr and I will see her on a regular basis as my go to gyno. She has great bedside manner and listened to all my concerns. I highly recommend her.
