Often, because of the frequency of headaches and the need for frequent visits, convenience is of the utmost importance, second only to receiving the best and most compassionate care. For this reason, Dr. Halpern makes every attempt to provide convenient hours and on-time visits in her office. Offering immediate access for questions, concerns, or appointments is an important part of this convenient care.
