I have been a patient of Dr. Helen Garbo, MD for more than 6 months now. I had visited lots of specialists because of suffering from conditions connected to my nervous system, stress, and depression which resulted in digestive problems, anemia, constant severe abdominal pains. She was THE ONE who was able to sort out the situation, establish the RIGHT DIAGNOSIS and treat my problems. SHE SAVED MY LIFE! I want to thank Helen with all my heart! Highly educated, intelligent doctor!
