Dr. Mark H Haltrecht has the following 1 specialty
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr. Haltrecht has been my doctor for a couple of years things have changed, he barely is in the office and if he is totally inconvenience his patients because he barely is in the weekends...he has his PA in which I do not prefer to see. His staff is horrible they to busy worrying about ordering food, they accept walk-in and totally forget about their prior walk-ins that have been sitting there for hours and take in the people that walk-in after me, this is an issue. I will not recommend anyone, time to find another Doctor.
Dr haltrect has been my doctor for eight yrs I followed him from Lawrence to merrick dr haltrect saved my grand daughters life when she was 6weeks old when her pediatrician was making my daughter think she was a neurotic new mom I stayed with dr haltecht because I trust him and his medical advice...
Just saw Dr. Haltrecht yesterday and was totally satisfied once again. He is very caring and personable and always thorough. He even takes the time to make my children laugh and feel comfortable when I have to bring them with me to the office. I also work in healthcare and the office is well run, even better than where I work. The negative reviews are probably wack jobs who didn't get the pain pills they were after!
Don't really get the negative reviews- great doctor and smooth run office. Probably the most thorough doctor I've ever seen with a great bedside manner. Really helped me with a serious issue, performed an awesome back adjustment and did a full checkup in one visit. Office staff was super friendly and virtually no wait- best doctor's office experience in a long time!
I've never come across such an arrogant doctor in my life. He is the type of person who waits until you're finished talking just so he can hear his own voice. He does not listen and interrupts you frequently. When he is wrong, he will never admit it. He waved off my condition, something that has put me out of work for a month, and has given me no diagnosis nor treatment for it. ("Have you tried yoga?") He only ran blood tests because I demanded it. Additionally, he told my family member behind my back, in their appointment, that he does not believe me and spoke horribly of me. A doctor should only discuss a patient's history with the patient only. Highly unprofessional through and through. I came here for the convenient scheduling - walk in's, what a mistake!
