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.

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!...more
