    Comment:  REVIEW: I have several complaints about Dr Halstead. I will say, she is very smart and took the time to answer many questions thoroughly when I first met with her as a new patient, pregnant for the first time. However, appointments always took half the day, often waiting hours to be seen. Yes, hours. Then when we got to the hospital and the actual delivery process, some of the things we had discussed ahead of time were clearly forgotten. I didn't want any medical students in attendance. There was one. I didn't want to be confined to the bed during labor, but it was necessary to check baby's vitals. Annoying but not the worst. The worst was having constant friction between my partner and I and Dr Halstead the entire time. This culminated in the pushing. While the nurse, my partner and everyone around were being amazing, reassuring and supportive, there was Dr Halstead at the edge of the bed, head in hand, with a look that said "oh boy this is gonna take awhile." Meanwhile, the staff at the hospital (Methodist) were great. Based on a May 2015 birth

    Comment:  Dr. Kelley Halstead is in Brooklyn Heights on Joralemon St./Clinton St. about 1 block from the Court Street R station. She is great and I know that she did take GHI when last I saw her (but I would call the office to confirm). She delivered my daughter in 2010 and she has been my doctor for years. She's great.
