Dr. Helton has been my doctor for over 20 years. She's always friendly and also professional. She never makes you feel rushed, she listens to any concerns I may have and is very down to earth. I would recommend her to anybody. As far as I'm concerned, she's the very best.

I went to see Dr Helton for dizziness she diagnose me with Vertigo, and refused me any medication, until I went back to Family Practice and was seen by another physician which prescribed me medication, for 10 days now I've still been very dizzy, not as bad as I was when I was seen by Dr Helton on Oct 30th 2016,which refused to do anything to help me, and informed me that this Vertigo would have to go away on its on. She was not considering the fact I had work and school. I would not recommend.
