2 HOURS TO BE SEEN!! DO NOT GO THERE!! He makes comments Out in the hallway about clients and is so rude. I am truly disgusted with how he acted with my appointment. I will never step foot in his office again. He treats you like you are beneath him.

I have been with Dr. Balu for the last 15 years and my experience is excellent with him. He is personable and takes the time to tell you exactly what is going on and does not treat you like a chart.

Review for Dr. Ganesh Balu, MD

Excellent Doctor. He will work with you to improve your health. He listens to your concerns and takes a conservative approach on prescribing meds. Not a pill pusher. Gets back to you on the portal site with questions within 24 hours. A +++++
