Dr. Helm

De. Helm is a board-certified neurologist AND a board-certified headache specialist. He is the only neurologist in the central valley who also sub-specializes in both brain and inner ear disease.

Headaches

Not all headaches are the same. There are many different type of headaches which require different treatments. Not all headache types respond to the same treatment. Often, special expertise in the area of headache is required to make a diagnosis and to prescribe the relevant treatments.

Dizziness & Imbalance

Any condition that can cause dizziness also can cause imbalance. There are, however, a few conditions that primarily cause imbalance, but do not usually cause dizziness or vertigo.

The

California Headache & Balance Center

is the only clinic in central California that specializes in difficult headache problems as well as conditions that cause dizziness and imbalance. The clinic is led by Melvin R. Helm, M.D., a board-certified neurologist who trained at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. Dr. Helm is a Fresno native who started the clinic because of the great demand for services in his area. In fact, over 120,000 people in the Fresno area suffer from migraine and even a greater number suffer from disorders that cause dizziness and imbalance. Dr. Helm has gone to great lengths to establish a state-of-the-art laboratory at the center and all diagnostic testing is performed with the best instrumentation modern technology can offer.
