Dr. Halpern states, "Although I keep current with latest technology I remain conservative in my approach to my patients. Certain classics always remain in style: educating patients and treating them with kindness and respect, being open to new technology, yet remaining safe with those new options (e.g. FeatherLift), encouraging patients to achieve healthy skin, maintaining a caring staff and having as a goal to achieve the highest standards of care and quality." He takes enormous pride in them. Finally, Dr. Halpern is a people person and derives tremendous satisfaction when he sees his patients wearing a great smile after surgery.
