      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Helzer says...

      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.

      Dr. Helzer's Care Philosophy

      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.

      Dr. Helzer says...

      When diagnosing and treating conditions, I try to involve the patient as much as possible. When patients have an understanding of what is happening with their health and they actively participate in their treatment plan, they achieve better outcomes.

      Dr. Helzer says...

      One of the most satisfying parts of my practice is partnering with patients to improve physical fitness, strengthen vitality, lessen fatigue and combat aging. Nutritional supplementation, bioidentical hormone replacement and other holistic approaches are valuable tools that are directed to every patient’s individual needs. Throughout my years of practice, I have seen the benefit of preventing disease before it starts. I hope to inspire you to get stronger, faster and smarter!
