Ratings for Dr. Monica L. Halem
My unpleasant experience was a waste of time and money. I was kept waiting for about 40 minutes mid-appointment while the doctor saw another patient; had I not stepped into the hallway, twice, to question an aide, the delay might have been even longer. Instead of apologizing upon her return, Dr. Halem initiated a modulated confrontation with me DURING THE PROCEDURE because I complained. I eventually discovered that she charged significantly more than other dermatologists and plastic surgeons in the area who perform the same work. The results were barely noticeable. I said as much to the nurse who called days later to follow up with me, but no attempt at restitution of any kind was made. As is the case with other posters I'm sure, this was written to perhaps benefit readers, not to be vengeful.
Good doctor. She made me feel at ease. A little harried last time I saw her and a little stumped about that particular issue- but I believe she knows her stuff in general. Staff is nice too. When I called in for a problem that overlapped with another field- her staff was quick to speak to her and give me a stopgap solution until I was able to get in there. This is key- many busy offices- staff don't communicate with the doctor well; hers does. FYI- I used to go to Marc Grossman, considered the best dermatologist in the city and I switched to Halem b/c I found her personality better
Dr. Halem was awesome, and her staff is amazing, probably the nicest group of people i've ever met in a doctor's office. Dr. Halem was amazing. Really thorough, really nice, and even took the time to answer other dermatological questions I had.
After waiting an hour and a half I finally put my clothes on and left. The staff kept saying 15 minutes...oh, just 10 more minutes. It was absurd and this Dr. should not be given more business if she thinks her time is more valuable than others.
