    Did not take my condition seriously and had a mocking tone in his voice. He made me feel like a fool.

    My mom sees him. I wish I had a dr like him. He is educating an also listens to patients concerns. He is one of the best family practitioners I have ever had experienced with. He will call you back after hours within 3 minutes! Always. I supposedly have the top 100 physicians. But Dr. Helfin beats my dr by miles and miles. I can't say enough about him and his staff and Lisa the nurse. He or she never make you feel they don't have time even when you might go off subject. They sincerely care,GREAT
