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.

All he did was re-write what I put in my initial Medical History. He has NO COMMON COURTESY OR BEDSIDE MANNER!...Read More
