Dr. Hellstrom is a teaching Dr. which I personally have much confidence in his care. The wait time varies but I never had to wait more than an hour.
in New Orleans, La |
We waited over a month just to get an appointment. My husband waited two hours to be seen by Dr. Hellstrom. Then dr. Hellstrom was rude to him. His exact words at one point were, "What do you want?". He also wanted to charge him to have another semen analysis even after he had my husband fax over the results of the one we just had done. Absolutely disgusting to know this is how he treats some of his patients that are seeking answers in attempt to start a family.
