We have been trying to deal with this doctor since before christmas. A drain was put into my grandfather and he has been in an extreme amount of pain ever since. We have requested assistance from this doctor over and over and over. We have heard NOTHING. My grandfather has been in so much pain he cannot even eat. This is unacceptable. Dr. Helou is supposed to care about the health and well being of his patients, and I sincerely don't think he does. At all.

Excellent surgeon. Caring, attentive and skilled. We would recommend him to anyone. I have no office visit history with him yet as I have just scheduled a surgical follow-up appointment but have had numerous visits with him at Centennial Medical Center after he performed an emergency surgery. Outstanding surgeon!
