Ratings for Dr. Michele L. Helfgott
Dr. Helfgott treats her patients like family. She will do anything and try everything to make sure she is finding out your problems. She is calming, informative and like a friend. Hands down the best doctor I have ever found. She has figured out issues other doctors refused to keep trying at. I love her! She is well worth the wait to get into! THANK YOU MICHELLE!
While she was not my regular OB, she was the OB on call when my water broke. She was fabulous!!! We had a history of pregnancy losses and she was so accomodating to us and our wishes surrounding our child's birth. Even though she had never met us prior to that day, she cared for us as well (if not better) than our regular OB would have. :)
I went in with the symptoms of PCOS, she sat down and talked to me about a lot, and took the time to explain what we were going to be doing and why. The pap didn't hurt at all (and they usually do), she set me up with a nutritionist and gym and I have strict orders to go. I didn't find her unpleasant, she was just very sure of what I needed to do to get better and have a baby. I feel she gives good advice and if taken, it will help me get a lot better. She is digging deep to get to what is all wrong with me and to help with the future of us starting a family. I really believe she cares for her patients. I didn't have to wait long to get in, but have been warned it's more likely than not. I feel it's worth it though and would wait the time it took just to be able to have her as a Dr..
I am a surgical RN and Dr Helfgot cares (more than any other surgeon I have ever worked with); she calls several times to the bedside nurse to check patient status AFTER they return to the room from surgery. Her orders are very strict for the patients best recovery potential. I am actually switching to her for my next GYN visit.
Dr. Helfgott is the BEST! Honestly. She genuinely cares about her patients and will stand up for them. Now that isn't something you can find anymore. I would wait any amount of time to see her. She is a very busy doctor that doesn't let that effect her care to her patients.
