Attended his office for over the course of two years. Over a length of time he very slowly addressed my problem. Discouraged surgery to remove the problem. Fastward to en emergency room viste from complication of the same issue the emergency Dr. Advised I have my severe problem removed immediately. Problem gone.

I had a procedure preformed and I didn't think it was healing properly. So I scheduled an appointment sooner than my follow up to have it checked. I went to my appointment and I was treated with a level of indifference by Dr. Hellinger that I had never experienced. Dr. Hellinger spent 2 seconds and glanced at it, said it was swollen, and walked out without saying anything else. I left feeling like an inconvenience. I needed Dr. Hellinger's medical and professional assessment.

Dr hellinger is a very personable man, very respectful and will answer any questions you might have. The way his office is run is amazing. If you have an appointment for 2 p.m. then you will be seen at 2 p.m (give or take a few minutes at times), I have never seen such punctuality at a doctors office. I once had an emergency and he was able to see me the same day, I am so thankful! If you are running late, please call they might be able to help but not always.
