“ I Love Dr. H. He did my knee last year and it went beautifully. He is very knowledgeable and very kind and an excellent surgeon. Just went for my shoulder--worked out great! Highly recommend him. Babyboomer Z. ”

— Excellent Surgeon | San Francisco, CA

“ Once you get in to meet him... the experience is great! He's super friendly, knowledgeable and knows how to talk to patients when explaining the complexities of the problem. ”

— Dr. Phil R. | San Francisco, CA

“ Six months ago, after my last surgery with the other surgeon failed, I got in to see Dr. Halbrecht right away, and was able to schedule surgery the following week! My shoulder is soooo much better now! I feel like my nightmare is over. ”
