~ Eileen Dellapenna

 

" Excellent experience! He was compassionate and knew what he was doing. I was so afraid because I knew it would be a difficult surgery. Seeing the Xrays and my knee not hurting anymore, I am so impressed. I would recommend him to anyone. He did the operation when no other doctor would. "

~ Janet Madden

 

" We are really happy with the results for my mom’s knee replacement. We had a lot of expectations before surgery. Because of how well she did, she is now going to have her other knee done. Thank you to Dr. Halawi for making it happen for her. We really appreciate everything he has done for her and are happy to see her results. "

~ Christopher Tomczyk

 

" I was impressed from the first appointment when Dr. Halawi spent more time with me than I've spent with other doctors over the last few years. He explained my options thoroughly. Made me feel like I was not just a number. And came up with a course of care resulting in a partial knee replacement. Six weeks after it feels like a new knee. The original pain is gone. Looking forward to the next one. "

~ Randall Krampitz

~ Judith Cullison

 

"Very personable. Overall 100% I would choose Dr. Halawi again and certainly make a recommendation for anyone needing his services. "

~ Jean Young

~ Dora B

 

" I loved him. He was direct and complete and every step of the way I knew what was coming. The absence of the pain is a miracle. His office staff was super helpful and very easy to work with. "

~ Marybeth Shay

 

" Dr. Halawi is a special person. Communication wise, he is excellent. He informs his patients well before he makes decision on what needs to be done. This puts the patient’s mind at ease with their caregiver. He is a very confident person who gives the patient confidence. I could go on and on. I am very satisfied with the surgery I had and so is my family. We are all very pleased. We would refer anyone to Dr. Halawi, with confidence they will get the same care I did. Love you! "

~ Thecla Hayes Martinez

 

" Everyone was courteous. They made me feel relaxed and took good care of me. Dr. Halawi is a very warm person. "

~ John Bailey

 

" I think that Dr. Halawi is an artist. He is thorough. He's kind. And professional. He closed my incision beautifully. I'm not a textbook case and he was able to work under unusual circumstances. "

~ Susan Phillips Plese

 

" The best decision I've ever made. Prior to surgery I had been living in excruciating pain. So much pain that I didn't know how long I could live with it. Dr. Halawi is the most compassionate, patient, kind, skilled surgeon. He answered all my questions. Responded whenever I had a concern. Explained the whole process and took the fear away. I cannot recommend this surgeon enough. I am a yoga teacher that had a total hip replacement. I have my body back. I have my life back. And I am living pain free. Dr. Halawi and his supporting staff are the best! "

~ Sharon D

 

"I had a great experience. At this point I've had both hips replaced by Dr. Halawi. I am pain free. This man has given me my life back! I am so grateful. The staff are great. Zackia and Marita are wonderful!!! I've recommended Dr. Halawi to other people with so much confidence knowing they will be very satisfied with him."

~ Mindy T

 

"My first experience was meeting with an APRN. Prior to going to UConn I had done my research and the APRN told me she was going to introduce me to Dr. Halawi. I was thrilled when she said that because my research told me he was the best in the state. I couldn't have had a better outcome. I am walking fine after 6 weeks. One of the things that offered a great level of confidence was that he had a thorough dialogue with me and was very accessible, even outside of the office. Unlike many orthopedists he had attainable recovery goals that I could do without a physical therapist. I have been referring to him my friends that need knee and hip replacements."

~ Faye Z

 

"I've had several surgeries in the past. This by far had the best and quickest results. We started with a bad knee that has been bad for 50 years. Now this knee is better than when I was 18. It's the first time I've had a straight knee. I would recommend him to anybody. And he's got a great staff too, the whole bunch is fantastic."

~ Joseph Malaro

 

"Dr. Halawi has been a fantastic doctor, very attentive and detailed, everything you want. He explained everything very clearly."

~ Stephen Miceli

 

"The whole process has been superior. He told me everything. From the beginning I had a good impression from him. He takes a real cautious and deliberate approach to things. His website was very good. It prepares you for the process. There are no mysteries. He tells you the things you need to do and what not to do."

~ Rick Rice

 

"I can't say enough good things about the whole office and staff. The results of the surgery were beyond my expectations. I am grateful to have such a talented surgeon. I'm feeling stronger than I have in five years. I am 100% pain free and optimistic about the future and becoming a productive person in the work force. Thanks to Dr. Halawi and his staff!"

~ Donald Lomnicky

 

"He did an excellent job. I'm ecstatic with my hip. I also think Dr. Halawi takes a personal interest in making sure the job is well done and making you better. I was stubborn and waited so long, but a year after surgery and it feels like night and day. I have been going ice fishing with my new hip!"

~ Charles Curtis

 

"I have so much respect for this doctor. Dr. Halawi is the best doctor! I will pray for him forever. I am very satisfied after my surgery and recovery."

~ Soofia Perveen

 

" My experience with Dr. Halawi and crew was outstanding. I felt well treated. The surgery itself was unbelievable. I would highly recommend this surgery to anyone. I'm 100% different than before the surgery. My life is totally different now. I'm very thankful to Dr. Halawi and his crew. I honestly didn't think it would be this good."

~ Christopher G

 

"Dr. Halawi was really great. He explains the procedures and what is going to happen. The office staff is there every time we call. I like how he sits with the patient and explains EVERYTHING: surgery vs. no surgery. We've been to plenty of doctors before and none were like Dr. Halawi. Even after surgery, he calls and checks up on the patient. My dad is really happy with his knee surgery."

~ Elvisa Esmic

 

"Very helpful. Calming. I was happily impressed with Dr. Halawi. He was considerate, kind and attentive. He was very thorough with information. The information was presented in a conceptual way that I could understand from my uninformed background."

~ Alan Schwartz

 

"In all of my experiences in a medical setting this was by far the best in every way. Not only was Dr. Halawi extremely thorough and knowledgeable to the point where I thought he had x-ray vision, but he was kind. He smiled and laughed. I felt completely at ease and confident I was getting the right diagnosis. Everyone was excellent from the moment I stepped in."

~ Shannon Shinskie

 

"Dr. Halawi was the greatest. He was nice. He explained everything concerning the surgery. I had surgery on my ankle. It went very well. The hospital stay was nice too. I would recommend Dr. Halawi to anyone else. "

~ Awilda Samnath

 

"I had my right hip replaced last year. Dr. Halawi was the surgeon. My experience during and after the surgery was excellent. I am extremely highly satisfied with the doctor patient relationship. Dr. Halawi was extremely thorough with his explanations as to what I needed to have done. He explained how the procedure was going to be done in a fashion I could understand. I was very satisfied with the care I had post surgery in the hospital. They took very good care of me even though I was only there for a day. Everybody was extremely pleasant. They made me feel very comfortable. My pain prior to the surgery was a 10 plus and once I had the surgery and was released and went home I felt 100% better. I felt fabulous. Now I have such a better quality of life. I can't thank Dr. Halawi enough."

~ Catherine Gillis

 

"I am extremely satisfied with Dr. Halawi and his staff. They are very professional, thorough and always willing to help you. I was able to get appointments rapidly and possible solutions quickly. Would highly recommend seeing Dr. Halawi and his staff for excellent care."

~ Richard Pagani

 

"Dr. Halawi was the second doctor I saw for my knee. I was told I needed a full knee replacement but Dr. Halawi was the first to mention that I was a good candidate for a partial knee replacement. He took the time to go over the pros and cons of both options. I very much appreciated the time he took in all of my visits to answer all the questions I had. The surgery for partial replacement went well, follow-ups have progressed nicely. I would recommend Dr. Halawi for knee replacement procedures."

~ William Field

 

"I had a left total hip replacement on October 30, 2018. The info I received from Dr. Halawi was very through. I am very pleased that I no longer have pain in my left hip. I will be scheduling surgery for my right hip very soon and I am looking forward to positive results as well. Dr. Halawi is a very concerned and passionate doctor. I have faith in him and his skills."

~ Mary Morrell

 

"Mom had a right total hip replacement after she broke her hip. It went tremendously well. She was up walking much faster than we expected and also a lot more mobile. The care that Dr. Halawi took was amazing. He came in on his day off. It was unbelievable! Now my mom is very mobile and getting better each day. She is way past what people thought she would be at this stage of recovery."

~ Ryan Debaise

 

"I would recommend anyone needing knee surgery come here. It was a great experience. Everything worked out fine. I was treated with respect, which is a big thing for me. Dr. Halawi was the best! He was very understanding. He told me what to expect. He didn't promise anything, but he told me if I did what he said everything would work out great. The results for my total knee replacement were remarkable!"

~ Don Esmail

 

"I want to thank Dr. Halawi for replacing my right hip. He is the person who relieved the pain I had been living with for a decade. His kind and straight forward approach is a breath of fresh air as I always felt he was putting my needs first. His work is meticulous and my surgery was completely successful despite the complexity of the procedure. I cannot recommend him more highly."

~ Richard Hawley

 

"I had a right knee total replacement. Dr. Halawi and the staff were a great group of people. Six weeks later at 83 years old, I am up and running! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Dr. Halawi!!"

~ Clyde Shackford

 

" It's a long story, but I met numerous orthopedic surgeons in both NJ and CT before finally scheduling my first knee replacement with Dr. Halawi. I am so happy and relieved that he was the doctor I used. He is caring and absolutely meticulous about everything related to the procedures. He has very strong beliefs about the protocols to follow and there is a reason for that...everything he recommends is based on research. Every question I had was fully answered and usually cited research which I found reassuring. "

~ Amy Scher

 

"I am very happy and pleased that I had Dr Halawi do my total hip replacement. When I first met with him I was in so much pain it limited my mobility. Dr Halawi was very attentive and answered all our questions. I was very confident in him and his team. The entire staff was very professional and wonderful to deal with. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. Thank you for giving me back my lifestyle."

~ Anna Marie Cohen

 

"UCONN was top-notch and this was further enforced when I met with Dr. Halawi. His demeanor and confidence reassured me that everything was going to be okay. His knowledge and explanations were clear. The pre and postop were as he predicted. The surgery has allowed me to move on more quickly than I thought. It has eliminated all hip pain. I cannot say enough about Dr. Halawi. I feel great and the future is now."

~ Gary Woodfield

 

"I am beyond satisfied with the total hip replacement performed by Dr. Halawi! He is a great doctor, he explained everything that was going to happen and he answered any question I asked and made me feel very comfortable asking them. He is very caring and helpful. I just went in for my one year checkup. I walk about a mile and a half three to four days a week, and I'm feeling great. I'm very happy with every step along the way. The staff at the office and the staff at the hospital were great! I only wish I had the procedure done a few years earlier. I would recommend Dr. Halawi to anyone. Can't thank him and everyone involved enough."

~ Pat Edwards

 

"Thank you to Dr. Halawi for doing my knee replacement. He is very professional and takes his time explaining everything before and after surgery. You can count on him even after the surgery and recovery is over."

~ Luz Plaza Aponte

 

"I can’t say enough about this man. I thank God every day for him. He gave me hope when I had none. I had a knee replacement three years ago by another surgeon. From day one I knew something was not right from that surgery. Even though I would go back and voice my concerns I was told nothing was wrong. Three years later I couldn’t stand the pain anymore so I started looking for another doctor. No one was willing to see me because I was a potential problem. Dr Halawi agreed to take me on as his patient. I had a total knee revision. This has totally changed my life. Just to be able to perform a simple task as to walk without limping has been life changing. Dr Halawi was extremely thorough with explaining everything from start to finish. I highly recommend him."

~ Sandra Boudreau

 

"I'm writing on behalf of my 87 year old mother and the wonderful experience we had with Dr. Halawi. In Sept '17, my mother fell and broke her hip and wrist. Emergency partial hip replacement by Dr. Halawi resulted in her (1 year later) being coined a "rock star". At the time of surgery, he explained the procedure and the possible outcomes to me with clarity and compassion. He is professional, friendly, can relate to his patients, and is obviously a skilled surgeon. We highly recommend Dr. Halawi."

~ Lisa Butterfield

 

"I'm very happy with the outcome of my hip replacement and I recommend Dr. Halawi to those who are going through my same situation. I'm totally a different person, thanks to Dr. Halawi."

~ Gloria Jimenez Pagan

 

"I think Dr. Halawi is a total professional. He made me feel really at ease and explained the operation completely. I would highly recommend Dr. Halawi for anybody needing a knee replacement."

~ Thomas C. Curtin Sr.

 

"I had been suffering with debilitating hip pain for several months when I was referred to Dr. Halawi for treatment. I could not bear weight and could hardly walk. I needed a total hip replacement. Before surgery, Dr. Halawi explained what to expect and why, and how to get the best possible outcome by following his instructions. He is very supportive and included my sons in the conversations. He answered our questions with a gentle firmness, emphasizing that the recovery is dependent on our aftercare and positive mindset. I cannot say enough about Dr. Halawi. His surgical skills, his attitude, his demeanor and his people skills are a perfect blend. He is a skilled “master craftsman”! He has changed my life."

~ Denise Johnson

 

" My family and I think he is a very conscientious hard-working surgeon that really cares about his patients. He spoke to us in a manner that we understood, especially with my father. We love Dr. Halawi."

~ Bryna Mooney

 

"I put off this surgery for years because I wasn't sure about the pain after recovery, but the pain in my leg and hip affected my work and leisure so much that I couldn't hold out any longer. Then I had the surgery and the change was unbelievable! I am able to do anything I want now! Oh my goodness. All the staff were incredibly helpful and kind. The doctor explained everything thoroughly, so I really did know what was going to happen. I was fortunate enough to not even miss one day of work!!"

~ J. Colin Tucker

 

"I was suffering from a defective left hip replacement for 3 years and it has been challenging, both physically and emotionally. I've been going back to my surgeon multiple times without any results of taking care of my issues, and it was such a welcome relief to encounter Dr. Halawi. He asked me questions and really listened to the answers, took new x-rays of the defective hip and explained his diagnosis, and walked me through the procedure, a revision of left hip. Great success."

~ Elke Miles

 

" Dr. Halawi is a testimonial to excellence in service and patient follow up. He was excellent and very caring and responsive to any problems I had during my recovery and at my annual review now."

~ James M. Carroll

 

"Dr. Halawi performed a hip replacement on my 87 (88 years old tomorrow) mother recently. She had been in a great deal of pain for some time and her quality of life had become quite poor. Prior to her surgery, she needed assistance with many daily living skills. Then we met Dr. Halawi and set her surgery date. We were AMAZED! My mom was up and walking in the recovery room. My mother was discharged soon after and went home. She was able to care for herself immediately. She required minimal assistance. Her pain was gone. We are so grateful."

~ Sandy Lee

 

"Thank God for Dr. Halawi, for having the knowledge and skills to perform my surgery. I have been suffering with both knees for several years, they had gotten so bad I could hardly walk. Finally, I had gone to a provider for my knee replacement in December of 2017, and it did not go well. Several months later I went back to correct the problem, that also did not go well. I was recommended to Dr. Halawi, he was well recommended. I had a consultation with Dr. Halawi, explaining to me and my family what he thought would be the best solution to repair my knee. The surgery was on the 9th of May 2018, it was successful. I appreciate the time and kindness shown to me and my family by Dr. Halawi, his team, and staff. Now I can get back to doing some of the things I used to do. THANK YOU"

~ Anita Frierson

 

"I had the best experience with Dr. Halawi. He was a very interested person who listened to and responded to my every question. He was right there at every point to direct me and reassure me and my wife. I had direct contact with him several times after my surgery and he was always a joy to deal with. His staff is also wonderful and I would go to him in a second if I was ever in need of additional surgery. I have made a remarkable recovery and feel I will be able to do many of the things I so long wanted but could not because of my hip."

~ Mark A. Lafontaine

 

"To me, Dr. Halawi performed a miracle when he performed my total right hip replacement surgery in January. Because of his superior skills and his unique technique involving the injections of pain killers into the bone and softer tissues, I woke up from the anesthesia and had to ask, "Aren't you going to do the surgery?". That got a chuckle, and I was told that the surgery had been done. Yet I was not in any pain, and never experienced any pain as I recovered, either my total right hip replacement was one of the easiest medical procedures I have ever encountered! Thank you, Dr. Halawi - YOU improved my mobility and pain level 100%. I thank God for your skill, and partnership with your patients, quite frequently. All the best to you and your team always."

~ Piper Hemphill

 

" The Only Surgeon I would go to is Dr. Halawi, Excellent Surgeon, Easy to talk too, I had fun on my visits to see him and his team. Being an RN, I would gladly refer to him to do your Hip or Knee Surgery!!"

"I had bad luck and good on the same day (01/31/18). The bad luck: I fell and fractured my hip. The good luck: I met Dr. Mo Halawi. Dr. Mo is a very professional Doctor/Surgeon who has the very best bed-side manner. Dr. Mo explained what was going to happen in terms a non-medical patient can and will understand. Dr. Mo exemplifies why we were born with one (1) mouth and two (2) ears. He takes the time to listen and learn and understand his patients. Dr. Mo is dedicated and wants his patients to survive the procedure and get back to one's normal life as soon as possible. I would recommend Dr. Mo to all!!!"

"It gives me great pleasure to share my experience with Dr. Halawi. He performed my knee replacement surgery in April 2018. Back in 2003, I had gotten a knee replacement surgery with another provider. Back then, it took a longer time for my swelling to heal and for me to recover. Now, 15 years later I am much older and the recovery this time was much quicker. Before my surgery, Dr. Halawi took his time to properly explain everything that he was going to do in the surgery. I felt very comfortable around him because he took his time answering my questions and he made sure that even before the surgery I would be mentally strong. He encouraged me and made sure that I wasn't feeling scared. The day of the surgery came and later in the afternoon, I even stood up and walked about 100 steps. I couldn't believe I was doing this but he helped me to prepare for this moment. I especially like his videos because I was able to use them for therapy at home. After I got discharged, I was even able to walk on the stairs and I am still shocked to see how fast my recovery process has been. Thank you to Dr. Halawi for your kind heart and everything you have done for me. The rest of his team and the staff at UCONN Health are very helpful and nice as well. I highly recommend his team for a stress-free surgery and fast recovery. I wish him all the best with his future patients."

~ Bhanubahen Patel

 

"My surgeon Dr. Halawi is very professional and has a great bed side manner. He calmed my pre-surgery nervousness and addressed all my questions without hesitation. He did a great job with the actual surgery. My surgically repaired hip feels much better. It's no joke living in pain and wish I'd gone to Dr. Halawi years ago. Thank you Doc"
