Made me feel at ease until he made a comment about women being "worrisome." If I have a heart rate of over 230 I'm obviously going to be slightly concerned. DO NOT GO TO THIS DOC IF YOU ARE A FEMALE.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Helguera. He took his time to explain everything with details while answering all of my questions. Shows that he has plenty of experience and practice. Would highly recommend.

Dr. Helguera has NO bedside manner. He has NO compassion, NO empathy, and NO desire whatsoever in making a patient feel comfortable. I don't care that I did not hear what I expected to hear. This person made me cry 60 seconds into the visit. He showed complete indifference and apathy to all that I have been through, and no interest in studying my record or getting to the bottom of my case. He did not offer possible reasons. He was insensitive, crass and unconcerned. Apalling to have him there!

I was recommended to see Dr. Helguera, MD regarding recently diagnosed heart condition. He gave me a 1 minute overview of the condition and said he would prescribe some drugs ... when i mentioned that i'd prefer to find other ways to treat this, he mentioned surgery, Then i asked if i NEEDED drugs, he said no, not really, as i was low risk. Then he said, if that changes, to let him know and he walked out - it was a total of 5 minutes with nothing on lifestyle or diet changes.

Dr. Helguera met me in Nov. I had heart flutter, rapid heart beat and irregular heart beat. Very rare to have all three conditions. He performed a 4 hour ablation procedure on me in Nov, 2016. Afterwards my flutter was 70% better. Irregular heart beat was gone. He did do the repair for rapid heart beat due to time under general anesthesia. Returned March 2017 for ablation to correct remaining 30% flutter and rapid heart beat. As of April, 2017 my heart beat is 100% normal.

Worst Doctor I have ever met in my life and I hope I never see him again. I went to see him with a folder filled with test results from many years (from one of the best hospitals in the US) and he said that it was a lie, that there was no evidence of anything wrong with me, that the test results were not true... He had no idea of what my diagnosis was and instead of telling me that and trying to help he put it on me. Disrespectful. He listened to my heart for 10 seconds and called me a lair
