    Patient Comments (1)
    Horrible Dr. Went there for my chiari. He said I didn't have it. I did and i saw an actual specialist and needed brain surgery to slow the rapidly increasing symptoms. I went from over 50 symptoms to a couple. Now I mainly have migraine. Dr Helmet does NOT listen to patients. He had a personal issue with me because I was a little late that day. Avoid him.
