This was one of the most informative and best appointments I have had. I found Dr. Helm to be very friendly, knowledgable, and he made me feel comfortable. I felt very hopeful when I left the office and I will recommend this practice and Dr. Helm to my friends and family.

I can't say enough about Dr. Helm and his staff. They are the most caring and attentive medical staff I've ever had. Dr. Helm goes out of his way to explain everything and keep you comfortable during a procedure. His staff is just as compassionate.Jan at the front desk has always been a pleasure to talk to. She goes out of her way to help you.

UPMC needs more doctors like Eric R. Helm. He's the most knowledgeable doctor I've spoke with in his field and he's also very knowledgeable in many other areas outside his specialty.

Dr.Helm is exceptional. I have gone to other providers regarding my shoulder arthritis and rotator cuff issues, but none were as thoughtful and technically clear about my condition.He definitely gave me hope about solutions other than surgery that are definitely working. I am so very grateful.

Dr. Helm is the most empathetic, compassionate physician. If only we could clone him! I look forward to seeing him as he ALWAYS listens intently and does not dismiss my concerns. He treats me like I'm his only patient and I imagine he does the same with all his patients.
