Specialties

Dr. Arthur J Helfat has the following 2 specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

experience with Doctor Helfat and Staff

I was happy my Father changed physicians. Dr. Helfat was very good with explaining the medical problems my Dad was experiencing. He returned my call when I needed to speak with him, which was important to me. His office staff was friendly and helpful to us. The office was clean and neat and I appreciated the ease of getting a appointment when my Father had bronchitis during the holidays.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Unprofessional Office

The front office is rude and irritable. If you have an issue they are not likely to be sympathetic. The front office is more interested in gossiping that actually treating the patients or doing their work. The doctor is only in 3 days a week and they staff recommends that you go to the emergency room if you have a problem on the doctor's days off. Dr. Helfat doesn't like it when his patients have questions and seems to have little patience in giving you an answer.

Dr. Helfat is an excellent doctor

My Mother has been under Dr. Helfat's care for the last 2 years. I am so pleased that she has such a good doctor. He's always thorough in his examination of her and very respectful and kind. His office staff is very helpful and will not hesitate to notify Dr. Helfat if there's a problem with my Mom. Every time that I have had a concern he has personally called me back. He's truly one of a kind and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
