Dr. Bali is excellent. Knowing we have problems in my family, other doctors recommended her. She is impressive. She is not quick to order useless tests, but she orders what's helpful and follows through.

I don't know how this doctor practices. She is out of the country half the year and when she is there her staff is the most incompetent nitwits. If they don't hang up on you first, they make all sorts of errors. Even getting an appointment is impossible (expect to wait two months for a consultation- and not because she is good at what she does but because she is never there). Stay away from this "doctor", if you get referred to her don't even bother making an appointment just request a new one.

Dr. Bali is very attentive, detailed and caring doctor. She takes her time with you and makes you feel a little better and hopeful of your condition. I have been seeing her for over a year now and am so happy I found her.

On my first visit, Dr Bali went over the results of my lab works thoroughly with me and explained in layman terms the results and reviewed my medical history. I had the same experience in the follow up visit. She listened to my questions and answered them to my satisfaction. She explained the options available to manage my symptoms, additional tests needed to get a better understanding of the abnormal lab results and made me feel as an active participant in my treatment process.

Absolute worst GI specialist ever!!! Her license should be revoked she has a bad attitude and was of no help. I had an ultrasound done a year ago and never heard back from anyone straight up neglect!!! She obviously doesn't care for her patients or practice doesn't arrive on time to work so petty!! If your medical insurance wants you to come here tell them to send you somewhere else because of how unprofessional and neglectful this doctor and her staff is!!!
