    I have recommended Dr Balin to my friends. You do have to wait to see him. He listens to your concerns. He is an excellent surgeon.I have been to other Dermatologists. I have found that they are not as thorough with there examination. He has a very friendly staff too.
    in Media, PA |
    Terrible! Waited for all three appointments over three hours. He never said "I am sorry for the wait" not once. Not even his staff. This man has a surgery suite next door and takes off to do surgery leaving his regularly scheduled patients to wait!!! No personality, no warmth, no communication worthy of a dime. Please, please stay away. He may be the best diagnostician, surgeon and educated physician but for comfort, convenience, confidence, care, consideration, ALL related "C"s, he is not one!
    in Holmes, PA |
    DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR. Today was the Worst experience I have ever had with a medical "professional". I waited over 3 hours to see Dr. Balin. When he finally came into the room, he didn't even apologize for the extremely long wait time, his exact response was " its usually longer". During the exam he spoke only into a recorder and not to me. The exam was not thorough, and I do not feel he addressed any of my concerns. He has no bedside manner and I personally thought he was rude.

    Outstanding Experience
    in Glenolden, PA |
    I would NEVER RECOMMEND DR. ARTHUR BALIN TO MY WORST ENEMY! I have worked as a Medical Secretary for over 50 years in many specialties. I sat and waited over 4 hours in Dr. Balins office. All he did was re-write what I put in my initial Medical History. He has NO COMMON COURTESY OR BEDSIDE MANNER! he mumbles into his dictaphone and realy does not initiate any normal Dr. Patient consulting. I am a diabetic, his response we have a vending machine and made me still wait to complete this exam.

    Suggest prospective patients do research, research, research first!!
