My sons have been seeing Dr.Helgemo since 2008 when we moved to Florida. We have always had a good experience there. As at all doctors offices there can be a wait, but you will appreciate it when your child is the one needed the extra time for a diagnosis! Friendly staff and great office helpers! Sad my oldest is going to have to find another doctor, since he's in college now!

I look at these reviews, especially the unfavorable ones. It is sad to know that when people have one bad experience with something, they take to the internet to bash. I have been taking my daughter to Dr Ben/Dr Liou for 11 years. Sure, times have changed. There are days my wait is a little , longer than usual, but I expect that. They are very popular. I have never met more compassionate Drs or staff, ever. I've never had an unpleasant experience, nor have I been treated poorly. Highly recommend

Terrible, no passion, receptionist(s) clearly hate Their jobs, lack of knowledge, no call backs, dirty, and scheduled time is about an hour off.

Patient since 2009. My experience recently has changed. Dr. Lou sees my son, which diagnosed him as having allergies. Although I have not heard any allergies giving someone a fever and coughing fits at night. To make a long story short. I take him twice to the pediatricians in a period of 2 weeks, which change from allergies to a cold. They tell me to give medicine, which I do. Nothing works, so I decide he needs to go to the hospital, he has pneumonia. They couldn't figure that out.
Used to be a great odoctor. Always friendly and had time for you. That changed though. Stopped having time to listen to your concerns. For years I knew something was off with my daughter but he wouldnt listen to me. Turns out she is high functioning autistic and if she had gotten help when she was younger she wouldnt be struggling now. She is to old for what is offered now.
