Dr. Balachandran , happily known to his patients as “Dr. AB”, has been my cardiology doctor for almost two years, and he is a great doctor, that I would recommend highly . Not only is he very competent , he takes the time to talk everything over with his patients, and explains anything that the patient does not understand. I really like that I am a part of my medical decisions, and at the same time, I can trust my doctor to make wise judgements about my health care .
