My wife chose Dr. Helmy based on his years of experience and good patient reviews. After learning that we do not have insurance, the office staff instructed us to go to our "primary" doctor for referral. When I explained that we do not have a "primary" doctor, they suggested that we find one. I then asked if I would be able to make an appointment with Dr. Helmy and was told "no". Sad and disappointing. I'm not sure why a doctor would turn away someone in need of their medical expertise. This is the world we live in.

Dr. Helmy is an excellent doctor. I have been to so many doctors who really seem to just be in it for the money and squeeze as much money out of you as possible....this is not Dr. Helmy. Dr. Helmy is a kind, gentle, caring doctor. He takes his time with you and gets everything done extremely quick. At my first appointment he sent me right after my appointment across the street to get an MRI stat and then he told me to return to his office right after the MRI....I returned to his office after the MRI and he diagnosed me with a SLAP tear in my right shoulder and he scheduled surgery TWO days after my initial appointment! AMAZING. All I can say is if you are looking for a doctor who truly cares about you, actually listens to you then Helmy is the man for the job. My husband and I love, love, love him.

Dr. Helmy has done 2 total knee replacements, carpal tunnel release on right hand, work with other patients who have had: Thump joint replacement, Total shoulder replacements (2) and other surgery's. Yes the wait is long but he takes time with everyone. He is an excellent doctors and a wonderful, caring man.

Dr Helmy operated on my lower back on short notice with an excellent outcome. He extended his (and others') work hours to handle it promptly, and follow-up was excellent. Wait times can be long at his office, but that is apparently due to his willingness to spend the time that he finds necessary with each patient.My son's experience was less good, as Dr Helmy diagnosed his problem as less severe than it was. Following Dr Helmy's advice, my son lost partial use of a finger.

He put in a hip too long, set it out too far and twisted it to the point that I have to live in constant pain and cannot work. This diagnosis has come from two other specialists.I DO NOY recommend this doctor to anyone. He needs to retire! NOW
