Ratings for Dr. Timothy D. Helton
I've heard Dr Helton is great -- problem is I've never actually seen him in the 16 years I've technically been his patient. The office staff is horrible and scheduling is a nightmare. I've had several appointments cancelled on me and it takes forever to get lab work back. When you go for an appointment you have plenty of time (waiting over an hour is typical) to watch people haggle with the front desk for their test results. When I was in high school and dealing with some major hormonal mood swings, the nurse I saw wrote me a prescription for an anti-depressant and sent me on my way. No further evaluation, no referral to someone with actual mental health credentials, just 'Oh you get bad PMS and social anxiety once a month? Here, take a psychotropic drug every day.' What?! I also sat with my dad for over an hour while he writhed in pain from what turned out to be a kidney stone. He ended up going to the bathroom, passing it, and we left before anyone even saw him. I was livid.
Stay away! You will only be able to see a nurse. You will also have a long wait even though you have an appointment. The staff is incompetent!You'd be wiser to visit the Urgent Care facility where you will be seen by a trained physician who will treat your illness promptly and efficiently.
