Dr Helfrich is always attentive to me. He asks questions about my condition and makes suggestions to help me.

Very professional practice . I feel that I am in the best hands with David Helfrich, M.D. After my diagnosis of IgG4 I was given an appointment within one week. I am so grateful that they gave me this appointment as soon as they did because now I can move forward and get the treatment I need. I feel Dr. Helfrich is very understanding and took the time with me so I understood the diagnosis.
