    took excellent care of me before and while recovering from surgery

    July 18, 2018

    All were good.

    July 18, 2018

    Dr. Helfry was awesome! Had never met him before this injury, but made me feel like I had known him for awhile. Made me feel very comfortable. Would recommend to anyone, even though I had to wait in office for a bit. Glad that he was the one that did my surgery. He was able to get it scheduled for the next day. He even told my parents that he would treat me like one of his own kids. Excellent bedside manner. Thanks Dr. Helfrey!

    Everyone I came into contact with truly cared about me, my condition, and how I was feeling; pain wise and healing wise.

    July 10, 2018

    I met the Dr when he worked on my mother and gave outstanding service- I went to him for a second opinion on a lingering issue I have. He and ALL of his team are wonderful and care about their patients.
