Dr. Helfrich is quite simply the best doctor I've had. Excellent listener, realistic about testing and treatment.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Helfrich. He is truly dedicated to the well-being of his patients. All of the nursing staff and office staff are professional, friendly, and overall a 100% rating on the entire staff.

Dr Helfrich is TOP doctor to me, he is the best, I HIGHLY recommend any patient to him, I have my family see Dr Helfrich, he was able to diagnosis my sister with her illness and refer her to a specialist, I have been treating by Dr Helfrich for many years, and will continue, I do not drive and will take 2 buses and a trolley to see him that is how much I trust and put my life in Dr Helfrichs hands.

March 10, 2016

The staff is ALWAYS nice, concerned,helpful and very polite. I would NOT want to go anywhere else. Dr. Helfrich and his staff is the best group of people. They truly are concerned about their patients. That's what makes them so GREAT and a place you want to go to for the help you need. I Wouldn't change a thing.

This is my first appointment with Dr. Helfrich, as my previous doctor, Dr. Alayli, had moved on. Dr. Helfrich seemed very personable and I feel very comfortable sharing any health concerns relating to my RA.
