What People Say About Dr. Alex Balekian, MD

Dr. Balekian has been my primary doctor for about 2 years. I must say that I trust him completely with my treatment and he is very personable, confident, and a great communicator. I always feel asssured when I leave his office that he knows what to do in my case and he communicates it well I feel very comfortable around him and his staff as well. He is positive and alway takes time answering any questions we have. I would recommend him to anyone who needs to see a good pulmonologist.
