Patient Comments (2)

I am forever grateful & beyond blessed to have Dr Tamara Helfer as my physician. Dr Helfer discovered a significant health issue that was missed/overlooked by a physician associated in a healthpratice across town. Dr Helfer is an amazing and outstanding surgeon. I can't recommend her enough.
