How likely are you to recommend Dr. Helmer III?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Helmer is an outstanding hematologist. He was the appropriate doctor for me because he was knowledgeable about my AA diagnosis. I had many questions and my ability to read research and comprehend it were a strength of mine. I questioned everything. My ability to be resourceful was not a threat to Dr. Helmer. I attended conferences for AA Patient in Houston, Texas and Bethesda, Maryland. When I asked, "how many hATG treatments had he administered," he gave me a very honest answer." He explained to me that the hATG treatment was very similar to chemo-therapy. Dr. Helmer didn't scare me with only negative side-effects. I would recommend Dr. Helmer if you wanted an experienced, dedicated, and expert in his field. He was always prompt, courteous and provided through examinations. Dr. Helmer was the right doctor for me!
