Patient Comments (2)
Gurnee, Il. |
Very knowledgeable, and shows interest in the person sitting in his office, not just the patient! Always responsive to my questions and any concerns, and always explains the technicalities of what he is doing in terms that I can understand. I have complete trust in his judgement and skills. Dr. Helm's is very intelligent and still quite laid-back, (which further inspires my confidence in him!) Office staff have always been helpful, polite, and professional, whether in person or on phone.

Ray Helms is that rare physician who actually listens to you, answers your questions, and wants to be a partner in managing your health. I have complete confidence in his skills and judgment. Bonus: He's also a super personable human. I haven't felt this well in many years.
