I would agree that Dr. Helfferich does not have the best bedside manner, but overall I was pleased with my experience with him. I had an onset of Sudden Hearing Loss and, in his own way, he was compassionate and helpful throughout the process of figuring out how to deal with this scary ordeal.

Wish I would have read the reviews before going to this Dr. I waited 6 weeks for this appointment for an ear infection & ringing in my ears. I don't feel like my issue was resolved at all. Doctor was in the exam room maybe 2 minutes & didn't ask if I had any questions. Prescribed a cream (?) for a ringing ear & told me to stop drinking caffeine. Waste of my time in my opinion!

I will not recommend Dr. Helfferich or this practice to anyone. After first having a hearing test, then an information-gathering assessment by a medical assisstant, I finally saw this doctor. After a quick look at my ears he offered to fix me up with a hearing aid, did not address my issue at all. Total time was about three minutes, then I'm in the checkout line behind a guy from a lawn service talking to the receptionist about weed control. Their conversation was prolonged. I will not be back.

HE SPENT LESS THAT 3 MINUTES WITH ME. LOOKED IN MY EARS, MY THROAT AND NOSE. HE RECOMMENDED A TREATMENT FOR MY NOSE BLEEDS BUT SEEMED A BIT INDIFFERENT. HE SAID IF THE PROBLEM PERSISTS HE COULD CAUTERIZE. NOW I NED TO GO BACK TO THAT PRACTICE BUT WON'T SEE HIM!
in Centerville, OH |
The staff was great. I was in and out rather quickly, even with having to fill out paperwork, take a hearing test, seeing the doctor, and making additional appointments. My main concern with Dr. Helfferich was his bedside manner. He seems to have difficulty making eye contact with me. Almost to the point that you get the feeling he doesn't like dealing with people.
