As always a very thorough and informative visit. Highly recommend Dr Hellman and his office.

Dr. Hellman is such a wonderful Doctor. He is very knowledgeable in his profession. For the people say they had to wait to see him...it was probably because he was spending needed time with the previous patient. He has won the "Best Dr. In America" award for a reason. I moved away and miss his professional care.

Thorough and caring. Always goes the extra steps to be sure my evaluation is complete. Convenient to have all resources in the same place. I would definitely send my family and friends to see him (and have!).

From a concerned patient, I have been a patient of Dr. Hellman for many years now. He is an excellent Physician, please do not get me wrong... Great Doctor! However... Of recent, I have witnessed how he treats his staff and how his office is run. I guess if I get great patient care, why should it matter how the employees there are treated... Doesn't affect me, Right? Well, It DOES!!! I AM EXTREMELY OFFENEDED on what I witnessed recently and I'm disgusted by the management team there! Shameful!
Our staff is very important to us at Hellman & Rosen Endocrine Associates. We work hard to maintain a well trained, professional staff. The average employee tenure at this time is eight years. We are sorry that an interaction took place that was perceived as not being up to yours or our expectations. Thank you for your feedback.
