    I really do highly recommend Dr. Steven Helper. He is very easy to talk to and has a good sense of humour. He and his staff were very helpful. He addressed all the concern in a professional manner. Thank you very much.

    Dr. Helper gave me straight answers and compassionately explained things that I had trouble understanding. The money I paid to see him was a bargain. His assistant treated me and my family like welcome guests. My experience was five star from the very first phone call. It’s refreshing to receive care from providers that are happy to meet with you! I highly recommend Dr. Helper!

    Dr. Helper was very responsive and helpful. He has taken a keen interest in my progress and has been incredible instrumental in helping me get better. I injured three discs and was in severe pain. He was patient and kind, and did not suggest any unnecessary procedures. In two weeks, I have gotten much better. As he often said, we treat the patient, not the MRI. Dr. Helper was true to his word.
