I have had the worse experience with dr Helm ever. His lack of compassion and way of examination were remarkably bad He did not spend more than a minute examining me, looked uncomfortable talking to me His assistant was no difference
in Stuarts Draft, VA |
I just had the pleasure of Dr. Helm doing a very difficult operation on my spine. ( ACDF). I had starting to get uncontrolable pain in my right arm and I lost the use of it . After finding I had a ruptured disk at my C6-C7 in an MRI. Dr Helm wasted no time in getting me lined up for surgery, just 12 days after my first visit with him. He did a great job. I can never thank him enough. I have already told people how good and how happy I'm with Dr. Helm. I will never be able to thank him enough.
