I visitred Dr. Helding for PTSD and he was fabulous. I requested "no meds" and he said, "Okay. We can start that way and see how it goes." It went great, and I'm super grateful. Would highly recommend

Due to profound medical error this doctor mis diagnosed me with major depressive disorder. After later acquiring access to his notes he misrepresented everything. I came to his office after experiencing minor stress after my wife just gave birth To triplets. I also had longer work hours and my office was a two hour commute. Because of his corrupt behavior he chose to over diagnose me with absurd conditions even though I was normal on the GAF testing. He did not mention my standard “life stressors” at all. He did this all to prescribe me multiple medications that are known to interact with each other which I sustained significant brain damage. I am permanently disabled because of this man. These doctors make a killing on medication management patient visits and his decision destroyed my life.

Dr. Helding was warm, attentive, knowledgeable, and willing to help me. He worked with me based on my medication history, told me about my options, and prescribed me new medications. I'm so glad I made this appointment, because I ended up being nervous for no reason. I already feel much better. I don't understand the negative reviews on here. I think people have unrealistic expectations of their psychiatrist also being their therapist, life coach, or school counselor, but that's not their job. They are MDs, so their job is to assess your psychological health and manage medications you might need. Talk therapy typically comes from another, non-MD provider (PsyD, LCPC, social worker). If you walk into this office accepting this, you will not be disappointed. Also, most doctors chart on a laptop---it's been the industry standard for awhile now, and many medical groups require it.

I was very anxious about this appointment. After talking with Dr. Helding I felt a relief. He listened and asked questions. He was kind, friendly, and has a great sense of humor.

We took my son to see this "doctor" and it was the worst experience. He had no competence in dealing with Aspergers/autistic spectrum patients. After 3 visits we dropped him. He had no clue as to how to diagnose and or work with our son. His best answer was to drug him up. He also presented himself in a very sloppy uncaring and unprofessional manner. I WOULD NOT recommend him to anyone.

Upon reading many reviews, I was apprehensive. After my appointments with Dr. Helding, I realize I am in the hands of a very skilled, professional and empathic Doctor who is out for my best interest. The negative reviews are basically people not understanding his way of assessing his patients for proper diagnosis. I am very blessed to be in his care; He is very professional, kind and pays close attention to me and my case. As a medical student, I aspire to emulate such qualities in the future ??

My son is a special needs adult and has been under Dr. Helding's care for the past 20 years. Before seeing Dr. Helding my son was having a lot of problems. Dr. Helding found the best low dose of medication to stabilize my son, and keep him well. We love Dr. Helding, though some criticize his demeanor, when it comes to medication, he is very knowledgeable! This doctor has been a God-send to our family. When seeking treatment, be aware that most medications take 30 days to fully take effect.

I have been seeing a psychiatrist for over 20 plus years and have never met a more incompetent doctor then Dr. helding. I've seen him three times now and each visit he doesn't look at me and just writes my RX's. On my initial visit he never got any background history like he's supposed to he just asked what meds I was taking and wrote the RX's and when I was leaving the office I looked at the RX's and he wrote them for the wrong dose. On my last visit he answered his cellphone and had them.

Do NOT see this psychiatrist. Dr. Helding answered the phone while I was mid-sentence in my session with him. In addition, he blindly threw medication at me and treated me as a guinea pig. I was clinically diagnosed as textbook anxiety disorder as well as ADD. He put me on an anxiety and ADD medication that interacted badly together and instead of realizing that when I had a bad reaction, he thought on a whim "perhaps you have bi-polar" and preceeded to put me on a strong antipsychot

Met with my son and Dr. Helding for the first time. Dr. stated he would have assessment forms sent to my address and have the office call for Computer Based Testing. He left the country on vacation after meeting with us. 2 weeks later I called his office about the forms, he was still out of town but the staff sent a note. Last week (5 weeks after initial appointment) I called again. The staff said he did not respond to their question on survey. I said he did not answer me either. RETIRE!

Dr.makes no eye contact with you or the child (the patient), stares down at tablet the whole time, and barely speaks to you (when he does speak it's very quietly and you wonder if he's speaking to himself). It's an extremely awkward exchange--when he's done he just stops talking, I don't know if we should get up and leave or if he might have something else to say. You expect him to say Alright, we'll see you in 3 months, have a great day, stand up and see you out. There's nothing like that.
