Dr. Hellman grew up in a suburb of Chicago and studied music at the University of California at Berkeley. After a career as a professional musician he received a full scholarship to the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. He completed his ophthalmology training at the University of California Davis where he scored in the 99th percentile on the Ophthalmic Knowledge and Assessment Program. Dr. Hellman’s fellowship was in oculoplastic surgery with Dr. Geoffrey Gladstone at the Beaumont Eye Institute.


Dr. Hellman enjoys the variety in the field of oculoplastic surgery. He is passionate about improving people’s vision and appearance through eyelid and brow surgery, and he is excited by the creativity involved in doing reconstructions following the removal of skin cancers.



Dr. Hellman fell in love with the outdoors while living in California. He enjoys hiking, running, and skiing, and is excited to explore Colorado with his wife Gina, an optometrist, and his 2 sons. He also enjoys performing and seeing live music whenever he gets the chance.

Why practice eye care in Pueblo, CO?

“I love the California mountains and I had a goal of settling down somewhere beautiful. In researching Southern Colorado, I was immediately attracted to the Rocky Mountains. When I found out RMEC was hiring I knew it was a great fit. I would get to practice alongside progressive doctors and be able to build a life connected to the outdoors.”

What makes you a better eye doctor?

“I have been a professional musician for several years, and music has taught me that excellence can only be achieved through hard work. I volunteer in every community I serve in and music gives me a way to connect with my community outside work. I offer free concerts for people living in senior centers, rehab facilities and hospitals; sometimes even crossing US boundaries and serving in places like Guatemala, Mexico. It reminds me that we are all working to enjoy a higher level of life.”

Stay at your best health!
