I was living with knee pain for 3 years, one of my friends referred me to Dr Halpern, she said he does MIRACLES. Yes, that he does. I went to see him, he sent me for an MRI, I received the results within 24 hours of my MRI. When I came back to see him for follow up he told me I had a tear and he suggested the PRP injection for me. I had my PRP and all I can say is so far I am 1 year PAIN FREE. I am back to all sports. MIRACLE DOCTOR ! Thanks Dr Halpern and his wonderful staff.
