Michelle Helms, MD
Cooley Dickinson Medical Group Surgical Care
General surgeon jobs can be demanding. But doctors at Cooley Dickinson find creative ways to balance work and play. Dr. Michelle Helms is a general surgeon practicing at Cooley Dickinson Surgical Care in Northampton, Mass. She was born and raised in suburban New Jersey, where her parents still reside. Ever since childhood, she has been very close with her older sister who is now a third grade teacher. The two spent endless hours riding their bikes, swimming, and doing crafts. Dr. Helms began talking about becoming a doctor in kindergarten and never took her eyes off her goal. She graduated from college after three years to follow her wanderlust abroad for a year before medical school. After general surgery training, she practiced in a rural community in southern Virginia prior to relocating to Western Mass, where she has become one of the most in-demand surgeons in the region. She cherishes her 2 dogs, a French Bulldog and a Great Dane.
