My child had a reaction to hazelnuts. Dr. Helfner took the time to truly understand what happened. She sat with us and discussed the next steps thoroughly. She was kind, considerate, and so caring. I cannot wait to see her for our follow up. She was great!

Today was my first visit to Dr Helfner's office. Her staff was excellent. They explained everything in detail from the minute you walked in and had to sign in to the same treatment you had on the way out. I felt I had a slightly unusual story to tell to explain why I was coming to Dr Helfner and not only did the nurse listen intently but Dr Helfner certainly listened, sympathized and has come up with a plan to help me. All was clearly explained. As a retired registered nurse, myself, I was impressed with her and her staff. I feel I am in good hands!!!!

Very friendly and knowledgeable professionals. Clean office. Took us about 1/2 hour past our appointment time but once we got in the exam room, she took her time and answered all of our questions and was very thorough.
