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.

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!

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.
