Rude, Racist, DO NOT GO!!!

If I could leave ZERO stars I would. I was referred to him through the VA Hospital fr my knee surgery. He was EXTREMELY rude, not listening to me telling him about my symptoms or anything of that nature. Shunned everything and wrote it off as a "bone bruise". MRI showed a torn ACL, MCL, Lateral Meniscus, PCL, and severe damage to my quad. And this guy recommends ice for a week and thats it. Literally. My fiance tried to interject and he cut her off and yelled at her until she was in tears. and he went racial with his remarks. I am black and my fiance is Native American. the utmost disrespect was showed.

I was referred to Dr. Halverson and left his office frustrated because he dismissed my chronic leg pain and tests supporting a long-term condition. He said he looked at my records and nothing was wrong with me, which seems odd because I had a variety of tests supporting an already-diagnosed condition. I am literally in pain every day and Dr. Halverson did absolutely nothing to help me.

Repaired 2 shoulders for me. I was told by a previous MD that 1 shoulder was not repairable. He is very professional, knowledgeable, skillful and personable.

I had suffered from two prior surgeries from another Physician and still had constant knee pain. I saw Dr. Halverson at the suggestion of a friend, underwent the standard office visits and evaluations and was scheduled for a third surgery. I am pleased to say that the third time was a charm. Whish I had the ability to see Dr. Halverson first. It would have save a lot of pain over the years. Thanks Doc for a job well done.
