Nightmare form hell, and i wasn't even the patient.
in Hernando, FL |
Dr. Paul A. Hellstern has been our physician for nineteen years. He is knowledgeable, confident and extremely caring. We both had colonoscopy and endoscopy. He explains the procedure in detail and the findings in layman's terminology. When I was in the hospital he explained the upcoming tests and the reason for them. He is a good doctor honest and upfront which is exactly why we have recommended him to numerous people. Richard & Geraldine Gralto

This D. not only saved my life by the right diagnosis but rushed me into the liver transplant program at Shands. Because of his caring and ability to care HAS GIVEN ME 8 MORE YEARS TO MY LIFE SO FAR. HE HAS always LISTENED TO ME, ASKED THE RIGHT QUESTIONS AND GIVEN ME THE BEST CARE
in Hernando, FL |
Would die before i would have to go see this man again. He lied to me over and over about my test results which were read to me by a real gastro doctor. Never Again!!
Inverness, FL |
Dr. Hellstern is very unprofessional and has NO bedside manner. As a matter of fact he down right mean and manhandles his patients. He does not listen to you as a patient at all and his medical advice is sub par at best!
