This was my first time with Dr. Helfred and I found him very knowledgeable and he answered all my concern taking time to explain all my questions

I have been seeing Dr. Helfrich for quite a long time. he has the best bedside manner of any of my specialists. He is a very caring doctor and is very willing to listen to all of my complaints; he acts on my behalf quickly and follows up with me when needed.

Excellent care is always received from Dr. Helrfrich and his staff.

June 14, 2016

Dr. Helfrich is a wonderful physician. He ordered an EKG for me because of what he noticed during my exam, even though he is a rheumatologist.

June 14, 2016

First experience with this practice. Dr Helfrich and Dr Henderson were very thorough and included me in the decision-making progress. first impression was very good.

June 13, 2016

I have been seeing Dr. Helfrich since 2005. I have always received the highest level of care from him and all his staff. He and all of his staff are OUTSTANDING in every aspect of my care. Because of "the war" between UPMC & Highmark I am now paying more for my visits. This needs to be resolved for the benefit of the patients.
