Patient Comments (2)
Clovis, CA |
Staff is rude, unprofessional, and lacks empathy towards pts. Recently wanted to renew my meds before leaving the country, and they refused to have me seen for an appointment or give a 1 time exception until I return. Pt advocacy is poor, go to any other medical office. Borderline neglectful.
in Fresno, CA |
Dr. Helm is an excellent doctor, he helped me with my pain from constant every day headaches that would turn into nightmare migraine headaches. Thank you so much for all your education and helping me to live a normal life again. The Staff is friendly and very helpful. I recommend Dr. Helm 100%.
