Dr. Helft and his staff are probably the best in this county! I came to them about 6 years ago after dealing with our first pediatrician, who wouldn't see my sick baby with asthma and wanted to just send me home. Dr. Helft took on our emergency right away and it's been an awesome experience ever since. He even gave me his cell number one time just to make sure an issue with my daughter's medicine got resolved. So far I have never been turned down for an emergency appointment. Even when they're packed, they make room to see my daughter. It's unfortunate for the people who got "turned down" for service, but when you really think about it, that was probably a hard decision for the doctor to make. Dr. Helft has a lot of patients and if he were to take on too many patients, the quality of his service and care would probably deteriorate for everyone, and I'm sure he doesn't want that because he does care. That's probably why they got turned down. I am very happy with this office!

Sorry for the people that were turned down for dr. Helft, BUT... You are sadly mistaken because he and his staff are wonderful very friendly and excellent mannerism. I am lucky my boys are healthy. Dr. Helft is not only an excellent dr. He is a great man as well .

What a professional and outstanding place for children. Dr. Helft and Mrs. Comer always displays care and concern for our kids!! Even though it took a little bit to get in due to high volume of applications it was definitely worth the wait.

Very nice Dr and amazing staff. My kids love going to see Dr. Helft. Have been with them for over 10yr. . Wish all Dr. took the time he does with Pt and listing to parent to help understand what is going on with their child.
Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
