Gwen Galloway – Jun 02, 2021
He was great -patient and allowed me to have my thoughts as to treatment. Spent a lot of time with us -not in a rush to move along to the next patient. Time will tell but he seems knowledgeable and patient. We went to a different neurologist first and although the diagnosis and info is similar the other doctor was nasty, did not like questions and was an ego maniac.

This doctor likes to scare moms send u on tons of tests and tell u he thinks the worst for your baby then at the end of it all say he sorry he was wrong he did this to other moms as well I wonder if he gets a kick back for all the Referel's I would never recommend him to my worst enemy I think he is absolutely terrible for what he does. My story is dependable and way more than what I am able to share here but trust me do not use this terrible human.

Jennifer in Pompano Beach FL – May 19, 2017
I very weird how two people can have such drastic opinions about one person. Dr. Helmy is patient, kind, he interacts with my son, asks questions, and allows me to make decisions. He doesn't have an I know it all attitude. I didn't get the best news regarding my son and only the future will tell but so far he's been great. Thank you from Dawn and Caleb.

Boca Raton, FL – May 02, 2017
I had a pleasant experience with Dr. Helmy and would definitely recommend him. He was both professional and personable. He asked me questions and listened to everything I had to say. The appt was concerning my 8m old, so Dr. Helmy put me at ease. It isn't fun bringing your child to any doctor, let alone a neurologist, so I was happy to discover that Dr. Helmy's a genuinely nice doctor. Anyway, he provided me with options and didn't pressure me to make a decision.

Dr. Helmy is not personable. He is not worth the co-pay. Every visit is not even 10 minutes long and it is mostly talking. The only thing that he checks is my son's vitals. He is combative when you question his treatment plan.

YOLANDE in Fort Lauderdale, FL – May 26, 2016
My son has autism and it was barely three parents in the office and we waited three hours and the doctor never came out. This review is two years late but I needed his information for some forms I'm filling out and ended up reading the reviews and decided I needed to leave one. I never went back. How can a neurologist do that to any patient much less a patient with autism? He never spent time with us anyway. 3 to 5 minutes tops he would see us after having us waiting 90 minutes or more.

Autism mom in Ft Lauderdale, FL – May 01, 2016
First, the office is old and dirty. The toys set out for the children or dingey or look unsanitary. Most important reason for my poor review: this Dr. has 0 bedside manner. He spent a total of barely 5 minutes with my son and Myself, asked if we heard of Autism and handed us pamphlet then sent us away to get some blood work done at a LabCorp. 0 interaction with my son, not personable. I highly recommend going else where!
