Saw Dr Helgeson for an emergency er admit for heart cath, I was so impressed with her concern for your questions about your scary heart health. She is a geniuine caring Doctor who will take the time to answer your concerns, explain any medical terms, procedures with the utmost patience. Never makes you feel like you are a burden in her day, not time pushy and never makes you feel less because of your cardiology questions. I would highly recommend her as your cardiologist. She makes you feel better about your concerns and conditions.

Dr Helgeson is my cardiologist and I could not have found a kinder more compassionate Dr for my care. She remembers from visit to visit ( a year in between) my concerns and problems. She spends a lot of time with me answering questions about my health. She is a wonderful Dr and I highly recommend her

Don't expect much from this cardiologist. She is quick with an assessment and unwilling to engage in question and answer dialogue. My ER doctor recommended a recath to check the circumflex artery due to my moderate to severe heart attack like symptoms. I had previously had a stent placed in the LAD. Her words were, "Absolutely NOT! That's not going to happen". She said my test were fine and she was going to discharge me. She has neither the expierence nor the bedside manner. Never again with her

We had this doctor at Mission Hospital when my husband had a heart attack and stent placement. She was the attending physician when my husband was dismissed. He asked her how long before he could go back to work. She first said he could go back to work the next day. Then she was gracious enough to write that he could go to work after a WEEK after a heart attack and stent. I would never go near this doctor.
