Meet Dr. Halls
“My purpose in opening La Jolla Breast Institute was to create a specialized locale that could provide an unparalleled level of expertise for women desiring breast surgery. Our efforts will always be to provide a relaxed and comfortable experience for patients with an emphasis on helping to make educated and informed decisions about all procedures.”
With over 25 years of active practice, Dr Halls is recognized as a leader in breast surgery procedures in Southern California.
