What People Say About Dr. Edward Hellman, MD

A very short wait time 10 - 20 Mins if you have a scheduled appointment. Dr Hellman takes the time to explain diagnosis and treatment plan, in a way you can understand. He is very intent on making sure his patients understand what is planned and what should be expected. I feel very comfortable entrusting my healthcare to this very capable professional healer.

Dr. Hellman performed surgery on my brother's back, and he is the one who recommended him to me. My brother said he explained everything, and prayed before the surgery. This meant the world to my brother. I went to Dr. Hellman a couple years ago for a pain in my back. He suggested a shot would correct my problem, instead of surgery. He was right! I was very pleased with him, and recommend him highly.

I will never recomend anyone to go see this man. He is rude & does not look at all the images on the MRI. He will walk out of the room & just leave you there. If he dont want to help anyone then he needs to let his staff know he is not accepting any new patience. He dont want to take up any time with his patience. He has no manners.
