Usually my visits are satisfactory or better, but this time.....not so much. Received confirmation of a 3:45pm appt. Received a call at 13:25pm saying I missed my 9:00am appt! No...... 3:45pm is my appt. After waiting 5 weeks forShow more this appt because Dr. Helman was on vacation I was asked if I could come earlier. 3:00 would be fine for me. Now I felt that I had something they wanted....... Dr. Helman's time! I wish the staff in the Monterey office could be as accommodating for patients as they would like patients to be. I was in his office for approximately 10 minutes vs the 5 week wait time.
Dr. Helman goes above and beyond to find answers. He has stuck by me with my mysterious ailments and continues to not only give me hope but he genuinely cares about me as a patient. I never feel rushed and he takes the time to expShow morelain medication and test results. Dr. Helman is by far the best doctor I've found in this area, and trust, confidence, and hope are just scratching the surface of words that describe my experience with working with him. Add his staff who are helpful and welcoming, and I've struck the jackpot of physicians and excellent medical care!
