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.

in Bakersfield, CA |
I was having pelvic pain on right side for over 2 months. Dr. Helliwell sent me for ultrasound to rule out ovarian cysts. I received the results back from Truxtun Radiology and it showed a cyst on my right ovary. When his assistant called me back the next day, she said the doctors note said my results were normal with no findings. Doctor didn't even notice the cyst until I met with him and asked him about it. Now I am being charged $100 because I decided I don't want to do surgery with him.
