I would not recommend this doctor. I went to him for my colonoscopy. There were NO pictures, NO written report. I was told they removed three polyps, size unknown AND I was told I have cancer, no biopsy was taken of that area to identify type. When I went for a second opinion I was treated badly and it was taken personal. THEY found 5 additional polyps, 1 precancerous and HUGE (2cm) at the Splenic Flexure (within a few inches of the identified cancer that was a 7cm tumor

He was called in on 1/1/17 for my emergency care for Pancreatitis. He was a poised, professional and set me up for surgery the next day. I am truly satisfied with his skill and professionalism.

Dr. Hellwege was extremely unprofessional and discourteous when he came to visit my wife in the hospital a few days ago. Paying a visit to show concern is one thing, but instead, he chose to insult her by asking where the surgery was held, and when she did not give the response he wanted, he mocked her by saying That's not what I asked you. His total attitude and demeanor made my wife very upset. Is he like this with all his patients? I don't expect to get one, but he owes us an apology.
