Dr. Eric Helm is one of the best Doctors I have seen in his field! He is so sincere and knowledgeable. I have seen two other doctors in his field the past 6 months that could not even compare! I feel so relieved that I have finally found such a great doctor I can honestly say I have complete faith in!!!

Dr. Helm is an excellent physiatrist. He listened and explained things clearly and did not appear to be in a hurry

My experience with DR. Helm is very outstanding. DR.Helms explaines in detail, what he'll be doing in surgery and what to expect. Doctor Helms listens to what you have to say and does it patiently. When your in his operating room team works comes out clearly and is comforting and feels safe.

Dr. Helm is, by far, the best care provider I have had the pleasure of dealing with. He os very professional, but also very patient, and compassionate as well. He explains things thoroughly, and actually takes the time to listen to my questions and concerns. He has a modern approach to treating patients which i have found to be encouraging and effective. I have already recommended Dr. Helm to multiple friends, family members, and work colleagues. EXCELLENT.

Doctor was excellent and we covered so much and he went over my mri and showed me where my problem was. But I really did not get a complete result on my lumbar spine issue and I did not have any xrays for him to review.
