stay away

Care from this doctor became adversarial and completely lacking in compassion. He also missed a very important side effect of treatment and, when identified, failed to treat it. Almost cost me my life. Cannot advise strongly enough to stay away from this incompetent provider.

A 5 STAR DOCTOR

Though I rated Dr. A. Hallum as a 5 star doctor in 1/2012, I mistakenly typed in the number 4. He is excellent.

RUDE

This physician is the rudest person you will ever meet. He attended my mother-in-law during her final months battling ovarian cancer. He was inattentive, blaming (her for the disease), disagreeable, rude, argumentative, and prideful. Losing someone to cancer is hard enough with a kind physician.... Dr Hallum was horrific. Do NOT leave your care in the hands of this person.

Both Dr. Hallums are exceptional. I called with a concern and I was seen that day, They are very low -key and took away my anxiety. I know they give me the very best care.
