Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

I am a Carson Dermatology refugee. Last straw was annual exam and Dr. Adams didn’t even examine me! He just had me point out things. I was not asked to completely disrobe for a proper skin cancer exam. Time for a new and much more thorough exam. My primary care Dr referred me to Minden Dermatology and boy, am I glad I went. The office staff are just so upbeat, professional and kind. Jackie, a nurse there, was absolutely wonderful. Made me feel very comfortable. She methodically reviewed my records and asked me some questions. Then I disrobed and put on the fun paper garments. Dr, Helfman came in and was so utterly thorough, precise and professional. He has a genuine interest in people’s skin and has a curious mind. Great traits for a physician I would say! Plus he has a good “bedside manner”. He comes off as cerebral, which I like, and kind too. They found things and biopsied one and I go back for a surgery soonfor another concerning spot. I highly recommend this practice.

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.
