He seemed very knowledgeable and nice. The wait was awful. I was there an hour and 15 minutes before I ever saw him. His staff and Nurse were very nice but that is too long to wait to be seen.
in Bristol, TN |
1st app was 9-15-16, it lasted about 20 mins total. Met w/his PA (10 min). who spent more time with me than the dr did. Dr came in (10 min) & said my issue wasn't that bad & he has no idea why I have over 60 neuro symptoms a day. I brought 3 MRIs & MULTIPLE test results/reports. There was NO WAY he looked at them in less than 20 mins. He never examined me or asked me any questions & neither did his PA. If he's the best around, I feel bad for the city of Bristol

Wonderful neurosurgeon. The very best, top drawer. Great personality, good rapport. Did an excellent job on a very bad back.

Prior to surgery, I had no use in my right arm and right leg. I could not walk, hold a coffee cup or feed myself. After surgery, I was able to walk out of the hospital, I can now feed myself. Thanks to Dr. Helms I now have my life back!!!
