Dr. Helfrich is the best provider I visit. He truly cares about his patients and takes time to let you ask questions and to describe stuff to you. His staff is always courteous. I can't say enough about Dr. Helfrich and his staff. I wish all my providers were more like him!

August 19, 2016

Dr.Helfrich and his staff are the best--he's why I chose UPMC when my COBRA coverage ran out.

August 17, 2016

When I need advise or help getting a medication they take great pains to help me.

August 17, 2016

The Doctor, Nurse and Clerks were especially attentive during my visit.

August 16, 2016

Dr Helfrich is extremely concerned about my problems with pain.

August 16, 2016

Dr. Helfrich went above and beyond his responsibility to me during a recent hospitalization in March/April. my family and I could not be more grateful.

August 10, 2016

Dr Helfrich carefully reviewed MRI reports and other records that I had provided from treatment and surgeries for cervical, shoulder, lumbar, wrist, and knee injuries and problems . He explained his limitations on a rheumatology standpoint, but increased my Cymbalta to 90 mg. I think that should help. I told him that I had a disc from Mon Valley Hospital of all the MRIs, etc and he said that he would like to review it. I'll send it to him.
