Patient Reviews
Dec 22, 2021
Dr. Helak was my husband's cardiologist. Having had heart disease for many years, my husband's health was at risk. Dr. Helak treated him for many years. Dr. H was particularly knowledgeable and well-versed in medical advancements, knowing exactly when to be aggressive with treatment. My husband lived for 85.5 years, having survived two coronary artery bypassses 25 years and six weeks apart. His cause of death was not heart disease. I credit Dr. Helak for the health and longevity my beloved husband enjoyed. If I were ever in need of a cardiologist, I would not hesitate for a single minute to see Dr. Helak. He is simply the best.

What’s a board certification and why is it important that my provider has one?

A board certification represents a provider’s dedication to ongoing training in one or more specialties, including the completion of intensive exams.
