DR. Helfrich is one of the best physicians I have ever seen as well as his staff. He is punctual, professional and extremely knowledgeable in his field. It is a pleasure dealing with him. He also addressed a medical condition unrelated to what I am seeing him for and offered a new treatment. What a great guy!!!!!!!!
