I wish I could put 0 stars!!! Horrific experience. DO NOT go here if you value your time at all. THE MOST redundant paperwork I have ever filled out, terrible front desk staff - so rude. I waited for 55 minutes to just go back and then was told there were still 3 patients in front of me for full exams. AWFUL experience.

I did transfer a bit late in my prenatal care to dr Helliwell , despite this I feel way more taken care of here than any other office. My needs are meet, the doctor is very professional and caring about my needs and concerns. I also got any test results back my next visit which I enjoy because that did not happen at my previous OB .

when I picked dr Helliwell to be my obgym I was not expecting to have such a good experience doue to the fact that I had medical/kern family. I was pleasantly surprised on how caring he was/is and how much attention he gave me. He has always been very respectful and answered all the questions I had. He delivered my son at 35 weeks in Jan of 2014 and I could not have asked for a better delivery. when I told him that the anesthesiologist was very rude he comforted me and did all he could to ensure

My experience overall at AWHC was enjoyable. The only thing I would say needs a little bit of improvement is the wait time while in the lobby. Falling behind schedule is understandable, however, I feel like it was something that happened too often.

Dr. Helliwell is outstanding, along with his staff. I would not go to any other Doctor due to Dr. Helliwell being so generous and understanding. There was not one moment where I have felt uncomfortable, he succeeds in anything and everything he is done. Amazing bedside manner!
