Review of Dr. Hellstern

- |

In my opinion, office was dirty. MA did not close door when she took me in the office and took vitals. Dr did not introduce himself to me. Just asked, so what are your complaints. Said I needed colonoscopy. Did not inquire if I had any allergies to anesthesia, etc. Which I do. Did not do a physical exam. Earliest appt for colonoscopy is 11 am. Did not seem professional or like I am accustomed to receiving.

Review of Dr. Hellstern

Dr Hellstern worked me in next day after I told staff I had chronic diarrhea for 2 months He immediately took me off the harmful antibiotics my GP had me on & wanted to give my gut a month to straighten out. 2nd visit: still no change in diarrhea, we now have scheduled gallbladder ultrasound & colonoscopy My only complaint is doctor is so popular that I have to go another month of chronic diarrhea before having colonoscopy & ultrasound to hopefully find out problem. Dr, PA & staff are All great!

Dr. Paul A. Hellstern has been our physician for nineteen years. He is knowledgeable, confident and extremely caring. We both had colonoscopy and endoscopy. He explains the procedure in detail and the findings in layman's terminology. When I was in the hospital he explained the upcoming tests and the reason for them. He is a good doctor honest and upfront which is exactly why we have recommended him to numerous people. Richard & Geraldine Gralto

This D. not only saved my life by the right diagnosis but rushed me into the liver transplant program at Shands. Because of his caring and ability to care HAS GIVEN ME 8 MORE YEARS TO MY LIFE SO FAR. HE HAS always LISTENED TO ME, ASKED THE RIGHT QUESTIONS AND GIVEN ME THE BEST CARE

Would die before i would have to go see this man again. He lied to me over and over about my test results which were read to me by a real gastro doctor. Never Again!!

Dr. Hellstern is very unprofessional and has NO bedside manner. As a matter of fact he down right mean and manhandles his patients. He does not listen to you as a patient at all and his medical advice is sub par at best!
