I do not recommend Dr. Helbraun. The office schedules patients every 15 minutes. However Dr. Helbraun gives as much time to each visit as needed. This sounds great until you wait 1 1/2 hours to see him. I was given a "sedative" instead of a local anesthesia and woke up during the procedure while I was experiencing extreme pain. The procedure was quickly ended and after complaints of the horrible treatment, I was given little explanation of results and denied further consult due to my complaints.
in Hackensack |
I find Dr. Helbraun very competent, patient and compassionate. I believe the medical work that he volunteers for in other countries is very valuable and I admire him for that. His office staff is also very friendly and helpful. The only negative is sometimes there is a long waiting time in his office.

Five star doctor listens to your concerns he explains everything in detail about what he is going to do never rushes you he is professional in his decissions to treat you he has made my life more comfortable I am happy to have found him
in Hoboken, NJ |
He regales new patients with tales of his pro bono work on other continents, but, should anything go wrong with your surgery, as it did with mine, he'll tell you -- and I quote -- I've got nothing for you. two years what should have been a simple operation, I still experience regular pain. Not discomfort, pain.
