Dr. Helzer's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Helzer "My years in private practice have taught me the importance of the doctor-patient relationship in developing a personalized, long-term care plan for every patient. I enjoy treating families and assisting them in creating a healthy home. My dedication to providing the best patient experience has been recognized with awards including the Patients’ Choice Award, the Compassionate Doctor Award and the On-Time Doctor Award. For 15 years, I practiced in Northville, MI before coming to Metro Health Rockford. It is a pleasure being back in the Grand Rapids area to serve the community where I grew up. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan, attended the University of Michigan Medical School and completed a family medicine residency at Oakwood Hospital in Dearborn, MI. When I am not at the office, I enjoy hunting, fishing, farming and field-to-table cooking."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Helzer "My practice focuses on patient wellness and creating a healthy lifestyle. I encourage patients to understand how much power they have in their own lives to treat and avoid disease through daily exercise and proper nutrition. This can be challenging in a busy home. Only by listening to a patient and getting to know their daily challenges can we develop a directed plan to improve health. Providing education materials and printed plans are only the start. MyChart and other electronic applications allow for dynamic communication of important data the patient and I can both use to improve understanding – and ultimately help patients reach their healthcare goals."

He was so caring, honest, informative and kind... I will continue to recommend him. What a great guy!! Kudos to him for being real and exactly what a doc should be, humble, truthful and on "our" level. I am a nurse, finding a doc like him is a rare thing.

One of the worst doctors if have ever seen. At the first visit he said all the right things and was very likable. Then it went down hill quickly. His follow through was horrible. I was sent for blood work and he never got back with me. I scheduled an appointments to review and he did not have...more
