There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 40 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Dr. Helwig was professional, kid friendly, happy and everything we could have hoped for in a doctor seeing our child. She treated our son like her own, and talked to us so we could be part of the decision making process. We couldn't have asked for a better physician or visit.

The care provider was very hard to understand. I personally thinks she needs to work on her English so people can understand her/it seemed like she was in a hurry/.

She was amazing during my sons visit, and surgical procedure. She even took the time to stop even visit him on Saturday.
