What people are saying about Dr. Hellreich...

And my longest relationship goes to: Dr. Hellreich of Kailua Dermatology Associates! Yay!

Yes, it's true, I've been seeing Dr. H for over 20 years. That's the longest I've ever seen anyone. Too bad he's already married.

With that being said, I must note that Dr. H looks exactly the same as when I first met him over 20 years ago. That's a good skin doctor! I can only tell that he's older because he has more hair growing out of his ears. Yes, I've started going to him as a teenager with pimples and I'm still going to him because I'm an adult with pimples. It's a tough life being an adult with acne. Darn genetics and hormones! But seeing Dr. H helps keep my acne in check and I'm usually pimple free.  And in case if you're wondering, I did try to go off the meds for a bit, and you know what? I became a gigantic pimple!  It was so gross!  I'll spare you the details.

Seriously, though he's been on the best doctors list numerous times.  The only gripe is that sometimes the wait does take a while because he tries to see everyone.  Which I guess is good for him.  So if you have an appointment, arrive 15 minutes early so that you will be seen on time.  Because even if you are 5 minutes early, your appointment may get backed up to half an hour.  And if you're late to your appointment, expect to wait an hour.  The staff really tries to speed things up, but sometimes one back up backs everything up, so be early!!  And parking is in the municipal lot or on the street.  I always put an hour in my meter to be safe.  And yes, they are accepting new patients.  So if you are having any skin problems, you can go over an see Dr. H.  I told Dr. H that I kept having this rash when ever I ate shrimp and I went to the allergist to try to clear it up, but nothing happened.  Mind you, I ate shrimp before and never had a reaction, it just happened suddenly!  Told Dr. H about it, he prescribed some meds and it was gone!  Thanks Dr. H!

I think Dr. H wants to retire, but he hasn't found the right person to take over his office.  Who ever takes over his office, though better keep me pimple free.  I can't wait to grow out of this phase, but it looks as if I'll never grow up!!

Great dermatologist and very knowledgeble. I little bit conservative in regards to treatment however looks out for   Your best interest. The wait however is always long so don't expect to be seen when your appointment is. It's usually a 30-45 min wait until you're seen.
