We have been struggling to find a treatment for my RA as it is active, but my immune system has bottomed out and I keep getting sick while on the DMRs. It was a three and half hour ride into Boston. It cost 8$ to park. I was there early for the appointment and waited 25 minutes to be called by the dr. for my appointment......who called me Mr. as he had not bothered to read the three years of records sent by my Dr. along with notes. So he didn't even know if I was a male or female at this point. He had a referral from my Dr. but the only thing he could say to me was why are you here. It went down hill from there. I am beyond disgusted. He spent less than 10 minutes with me. Had never even bothered to look at my records or given my case any thought. I thought BW had a good reputation? Not so much based on this. He doesn't even want to see me again. He just wants me to send more records. It was everything that is wrong with medicine. I don't know if he has knowledge as he didn't disply much of anything. He definitely doesn't smile, or shake hands or really care about what the patient might have to think or say. I suggest you think twice before wasting your time on this practitioner.
what a horrible experience!
inattentive. busy on cell phone for at least half my appt.- total lack of interest in my case. I felt as if I were annoying him. X-rays were taken-never did get results
Brilliant Dr at MGH was rec. to me- so pleased that I left
We saw Dr. Helfgott, a Fellow, and a Resident. The service was impressive, and punctual. The questions were direct and understanding, and the bedside mannor was conforting. overall, I would highly recomend this Doctor and his team.
I was recommended to Dr. Helfgott for my RA. Was a bit worried about switching doctors, but it turned out for the better. Even though I may never be cured, I won't put it past Dr. Helfgott. His great beside manner and even better suggestions are a fantastic combo.
