I had a great patient experience with Dr. Helfrey and his staff. He treated me for an unstable ankle with much-needed surgery and prescribed physical therapy. He continued to see me through recuperation after I exercised too much too soon post-surgery because of a trip I had planned. I highly recommend him. Nice guy. Listens. Explains. Knows what he's doing.
I cannot say enough about Dr. Helfrey, Jeff and his entire staff!! I had put off foot surgeries for years because of my past experiences and frankly, I was just plain afraid. I could no longer walk without pain and my quality-of-life was horrible. The moment I met Dr. Helfrey and his staff, which includes everyone from the kind woman who greeted me, the nurses, the x-ray technician, Jeff and Dr. Helfrey himself {a.k.a. the janitor :)} I knew I made the right decision ! Thank you all!!
I have been seeing this doctor two months now , he has prescribed muscle relaxer and anti-inflammatory , and physical therapy , he has never physically touched my neck , or examine me once himself . He says he will not do this without a MRI, the insurance company will not approve an MRI until he sends all the supporting information , His office staff has failed to do this, I now have to shop for a new specialist . I can't keep waiting for his office staff to finally do their job .
Dr. Helfrey has performed surgery on me twice. I have suffered with post tibia tendon issues and pronation. I know that he has made the difference between walking and not walking. I am recovering from my second surgery and look forward to walking again. I have a physical job and I know I am on my feet a lot!! I am awaiting a full recovery so that I may work and enjoy more traveling!! God Bless Dr. Helfrey!!!! He has enabled me to be a fully functioning person.
5 weeks post op, L4-5 tlif. I feel great. Still have some sciatic pain if I overdo it and late, like towards bedtime. But compared to constant pain in both legs, I can deal. This man is an amazing Dr and I'd be willing to sit a few minutes longer or not chit chat in exchange for his competency in the operating room.
I had severe pain in my knees.... Both at different times....Dr. Gelven gave me the usual cortisone shots, but the only worked for a few weeks. He recommended a different type of Shots. Using Chicken Combs??? I was in such pain I agreed ... I walked in the office the day of the procedure.. using a cane ... I walked out a half an hour later after the procedure normally and no cane and NO pain???? It's been over 8 months and still no pain!!! I Highly recommend Dr. Gelven..
Dr. Galvin performed surgery on my shoulder and within a couple of weeks I felt better then I have in over a year. He knows what he is doing and he tells you like it is good or bad. 100% trust in Dr. Galvin's and his work.
