Client Reviews

“Office is so nice and caring. Dr Halpern did Mohs surgery loved him. He is so nice and even called that same night just to see how thing were. Mario is awesome and sweet and can’t say enough about Amy! The front desk staff never makes you feel like you an interruption like most doctors office. The whole office cares about its patients. Highly recommend Windsor Dermatology!”


“Needless to say, when I found out that I needed MOHS on my face I was very concerned and worried. Knowing that you would be doing the procedure made me feel much better. My husband and I want to thank you for the wonderful outcome. There was NO pain at all, very little bruising and the scar is barely visible. We greatly appreciate your caring manner and exceptional talent.”

“Dr. Halpern is excellent! My second time for a procedure and he was so kind and caring. He even called at night to see how I was feeling. Nice to know there are doctors out there that honestly care about their patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Halpern and also Dr. Myers at Windsor Dermatology! Both awesome!”

“Thanks Dr. Halpern! It was a great visit to Windsor Dermatology. Dr. Halpern Was very nice, and very gentle during the whole procedure. Mario was very helpful and kind also. It was a very good experience. Thanks everyone.”

“Dr. Halpern is a really nice doctor he took the time to explain everything to me that night he called to see how I was doing you don’t find too many doctors that do that nowadays.”

“Dr. Halpern is an outstanding Mohs surgeon. He removed a squamous cell cancer from a very tricky location on my right ear and grafted a section of skin from in front of the ear over the surgical site. Great outcome, minimal scarring, fantastic office staff and a very personable physician. Well worth the extra travel time to reach his office from my home.”


“This was my second MOHS surgery performed by Dr Halpern. I had previously experienced other MOHS surgeries when I lived in Florida so I had a basis for comparison. Dr Halpern is very kind and gives a complete explanation of the procedure and always allows time to answer all of my questions thoroughly. He is a great listener and is very caring. Dr Halpern called me personally the evening of both procedures to check on my well being. His assistant Margie is top notch. Highly recommend Windsor Dermatology for MOHS skin cancer surgery.”

“Dr. Halpern was respectful, informative, caring, professional and warm. He took the time to answer questions. His procedure was careful; he explained every step of the way. He called me that night to check on me. He is an excellent doctor, instilling confidence in his patient that I was in the right hands – safe and excellent.”

“Dr. Halpern performed Mohs procedure on me. Even though eleven stitches were required, it has healed to be barely noticeable (on my face). Dr. Halpern called me the night of the procedure to see how I was doing, then he examined me every few weeks, a total of three times, after the procedure. He is an excellent dermatologist and his attentive follow-up exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended.”
