5 out of 5 stars Acne Treatment
Dr. Halem was excellent! She answered all of my questions and concerns and was extremely knowledgeable. I was seen right away. She is extremely easy to speak with and takes the time to ensure you are completely comfortable. I've experienced excellent results under her treatment; staff was also very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Halem!!

Pleasant, painless, quick and professional only begin to describe the positive experience at Dr Halem's office. The entire team was warm natured, personable and engaging throughout my visit. The surgical procedure went perfectly. From initial consultation, to post follow, I have only good things to say.
5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery
I had an aggressive tumor on my face. The surgery went fine, no pain and the results are phenomenal. The work Dr. Halem did was incredible and I only have a very small scar. Since surgery I follow up with Dr. Halem on a monthly basis to make sure my face is healing properly and if any adjustments need to be made.
5 out of 5 stars Lip Augmentation
I went in for lip augmentation for the first time with Dr. Halem. Dr Halem did a great job. I love the way my lips look and feel. So natural. The staff is wonderful and friendly. Very accommodating. Dr. Halem was so kind and warm, it was very comforting. I will be referring my friends to my new dermatologist.

She explained me the whole process of it which made me feel totally comfortable about it. Since chemicals are...
1 out of 5 stars Accutane
In a word, the experience was: awful. The first impression one gets with Halem's office is being placed on hold for at least two minutes. After a confusing conversation, one finally gets an appointment. While at the office, you will wait anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on whether or not engineer work is being done to the two phones the office has, so they can confirm insurance....
5 out of 5 stars Acne Surgery
I've been struggling with adult acne FOREVER. I've seen multiple specialists and none have ever been able to help me long-term. Dr. Halem is the first dermatologist who really listened to my problems and worked with me to find a skincare regiment that worked for me. She's a a miracle worker, and her staff are super outgoing and friendly!
