This visit to the Dr. was to change my primary care provider. He did talk about my medications during this visit and made suggestions on other options. I think that I will be pleased with this Dr. and/or his office which ever Dr. I see there if they are all as good as he was.

Things were going well


everything was as it should be.

Nice guy, listened carefully, very willing to help/explain

everything was very fine. I like Dr. Halvorsen very much. [...]

Dr. Halvorson is the best dr. I have ever seen. He thinks "outside the box", very personable, genuinely wants to work to find help for medical issues.

First time was a charm. He is good and a funny guy! Happy to have him watching out for me.

I liked Dr Halverson. He was well informed and really helped me.
