The doctor would not do a script test. Dismissive, creepy, and basically knows nothing of ectoparasites claiming he does . Pushed out very quickly in order to get the next patient in to see as many patients as possible during the day for money. Greedy

waited one month to be seen then was referred to another dermatologist because they do not treat the basil cell cancer that was presented as they do no excisions in office. What a waste of my time.

Brash. Cannot expand on anything beyond a textbook. Will not help if you have a difficult case; dismissive.

My wife and I highly recommend Dr. Helfman. He gives the most thorough and professional full body scan for melanoma and other skin cancers. He has found two melanoma on me and one on my wife, all three were very early stages (less than 0.4mm deep). He's not much of a social talker, but that's not why I go to him. I go to receive a true full body inspection. Due to frequent job relocations, I have gone to several derms over the last 35 yrs, he is the best!

Dr. Helfman is more thorough in annual examinations, than any previous physicians I have visited. I have seen three other dermatologists in Charlotte prior to finding him, some years ago. He is patient and caring in his approach. I find him exceptional in his knowledge and attitude toward the patient. You will be made to feel very comfortable by him and his staff.

I have already recommended Dr. Helfman to some of my neighbors who were treated by him and were quite satisfied. I had many procedures done by Dr. Helfman and during every office visit I had encountered smiling nurses and office employee. I believe Dr. Helfman is very thorough and all the procedures he performed were painless and very professionally done.
