  • Lucky to have found such an excellent Dr. Referred by a Family Member and absolutely would come to him with any concerns that come up in his field. I also trust his referrals to other Dr.s in his Facility because we have had a great experience with them all. Thankyou

  • Encouraging and hopeful experience after my motorcycle accident. It was like he and his staff broke out of a huddle, drove down the field, like Tom Brady, and scored the winning TD. Put me at ease and performed as professionals. TEAM Dr.Halikus are MVP's.

  • Dr Mark Halikis is an excellent choice for your orthopedic needs. He did one surgery on my right hand already and doing my second left hand surgery Friday. We would not want anyone other than him do our surgeries. Besides being a great surgeon, he is very easy to talk to and explains everything so you can understand. My husband is waiting for his insurance to change so he can have him do his surgery.
