ER Visit

We found this physician to be very caring and thorough. He spent at least 30 minutes reviewing symptoms and history and made very pertinent observations suggesting a disorder that countless specialists we have been referred have not mentioned or even considered. We are following his advice and hopefully will have a diagnosis for disabling symptoms that have gone on for over a year. Thank you Dr. Halpern for taking time to LISTEN. We need more physicians like him.

Doesn't listen at all

Totally in his own world - doesn't listen at all - repeats the same assumptions and opinions over and over even though you told him facts that contradict. If we're ever in the ER again, we'll request another doctor.

Aloof and out of touch

Came on shift and chatted it up for 15 minutes about his child's education fund, taxes, his boat, all in an open ER so all the patients waiting to be seen could hear. No, I like visiting the ER. Take your time. When he finally came in, his line of questioning demonstrated his ignorance of my problem.

Joseph A Halpern, MD Rating

This doctor is at Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis MD. , if you are ever unfortunate enough to draw the short straw and get him in the emergency room , demand another doctor immediately . He is completely clueless.
