Overall, I've received excellent care from this provider. My situation is unfortunate because we are taking a watch and wait approach. I feel my Doctor is trying to provide solutions to help me receive a diagnosis, but it is a very long and painful process.

I am very, very pleased that I had Dr. Helfrich referred to me from my previous Arthritic Specialist when he retired. Dr. Helfrich has stepped in and has been continuing to provide me with my arthritic issues and I am very pleased.
