Excellent! The treatment of my cancer is very important. Everything is greatly explained about my Prostate Cancer by Dr. Helfand. I trust him and his knowledge, research and education of prostate cancer. I am very glad I met him and will refer all men with prostate issues to him!

Dr. Helfand is an outstanding surgeon and doctor. I came to him after another set of doctors told me my left kidney was blocked and that I would lose it. Dr. Helfand indicated that would not make this judgment unless it could be proved scientifically. After a 2.75 hour operation, he removed the stone blocking my left kidney and the kidney now has function. He later successfully performed a lithotripsy procedure on stones in my right kidney. I have the utmost trust in Dr. Helfand!
