Although I have been his patient since ~2000, my records were purged from the system yet Dr Helfrich remembered me and a lot of my health history. Dr Helfrich is one of the best Doctors I have ever met including those Doctors I have had to deal with for my parents and other family members. He has superior knowledge of the body & mind and is also empathetic which is rare in many Doctors.
