My son has been seeing Dr. Helding over the past year and my son has done very well.
Willowbrook, IL |
Excellent child psychiatrist. Not sure what I would do without him.

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

Very experienced with special needs children and adults. He knows his stuff! He has helped us greatly over the years. I recommend him to others who need help and have had no luck with other doctors.

This guy should not be in a line of work that involves interaction with people. Seems to have aspergers. Answered and conversed on phone calls during my appt.

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.
