I went to Dr. Helfer for years, and stayed mostly for her punctuality with appointment times. But, the office staff is full of condescending, rude, nasty women. Dr. Helfer checked my thyroid on every visit, acknowledged I had nodules, and always said there was no reason to be concerned. Never a hint of a problem. This was fine, until I had a miscarriage, and follow up care for that revealed thyroid cancer. My gyno saved my life. A better endocrinologist might've saved my baby too.

Since I moved to NJ 14 years ago I have been going to Dr. Helfer. She is very knowledgeable and listens to any concerns.

Dr Helfer is an honest straight to the point doctor. She has been seeing my mother and myself for several yrs now. She takes the time to explain things that concern me about myself and more importantly, my mother. It has taken me a long time to sort through Dr's to that have a very good bedside manner about them. I wouldn't change having her for the world! Awesome Doctor! The ladies in the office are awesome too.Great Staff!! Patricia K and Sharon K

Dr. Helfer is a very cold, uncompassionate person with no personality or bedside manner. She explains her decisions very briefly and mechanically, as if she's quoting a text book. I never sense for a moment she cares about my medical condition. She spends as little amount of time with her patient as possible and makes you feel very uncomfortable to discuss concerns with her.
