Ratings for Dr. Kurt P. Helgerson
I have had Dr Helgerson as my PCP for several years, he is a little quirky but I don't care, he is very knowledgeable and listens to me and lets me explain things and answers questions effectively. Compared to another specialty doctor in Kalamazoo that is a complete nut job that I am forced to see because of a certain rare medication, Dr Helgerson is amazing
Too willing to prescribe medications, especially addictive meds. Has patients on Benzos and Opiods for years without checking for side effects and addiction. Was always rushed and behind schedule. Pushes repeat lab tests when results were normal in previous testing. Often rude.
Dr. Helgerson is a knowledgeable and caring doctor. The office is clean, and the staff are nice. Dr. Helgerson can be a bit abrupt, but I think all doctors are nowadays that they have to see so many patients. He definitely spends enough time and listens well.
Dr. Helgerson is extremely thorough and very knowledgable. Even though he can seem rushed, I have stayed with him (and now drive 30 miles to continue seing him) because I feel his thoroughness and knowledge are worth it, compared to other physicians I've seen.
This guy practices paternalistic medicine. Doesn't think patient knows anything about his or her own body. Refuses to listen to information because he thinks he knows better. Scolds adults about behavior when already approved by other physician.
