Ratings for Dr. R. William Halterman
Dr. Halterman is the type of doctor that listens to you and is not an alarmist. He will research your symptoms as needed and is very thorough. He is an excellent doctor and I recommend him highly. His staff is always friendly and helpful. Appointments are scheduled so that there is very little waiting time.
This doctor does not listen to anything I say, dismisses my symptoms by assuming I'm just asking for drugs, and has sent me for every test and to every specialist in the book. While I appreciate that he is trying to be thorough, even the specialists I have been sent to can't understand why I've been sent to them.
Dr. Halterman was convinced I was depressed, and when I got an eval that said I wasn't, he didn't believe it. He sent me to a rheumatologist to prove I didn't have any problems, and when the rheumatologist diagnosed a disease, he didn't believe it. My last visit, he stood over me sitting in a chair, raging and screaming. After that, I got my records and saw that he had serious misinformation in there from day one. He just made up stuff. Also, he had spoken to several doctors about my presumed depression after the first one said not to call certain others because of a conflict of interest. This was a terrible violation of privacy, particularly since I had not given him permission to talk to anyone at all. I don't know if he just took an instant dislike to me or what, but if so he should have told me upfront to find another doctor. I know I shouldn't have kept going, but I kept thinking that if I stayed calm & reasonable, we could develop a decent professional relationship.
