I have just recently started seeing Dr. Baliga. I could not be happier. He is very personable and made me feel he had my best interest at heart. He is open minded about my opinions and works to make you feel comfortable. The staff is one of the best I have come across.

Dr Baliga, Kristen and staff are amazing. Yes you have to wait because he is highly sought after but it is well worth it. He treats your symptoms and not just the numbers. He listens and cares. He is willing to try other options if you aren't happy with results. He truly wants you to feel like yourself again. Never once has he told me my issues are all in my head. I have seen several other endocrinologists but after I met him, I will never see another.

He treats you like you are 2, and runs useless tests just to get money.

Dr. Baliga and the staff in the Columbus Georgia office are not only thorough but very friendly and accommodating. I recently switched to his practice a month ago and thus far I am seeing BETTER glucose test numbers than I have seen in YEARS. I know at times there is a short wait past appointment time but I chalk that up to caring. Dr. Baliga takes the time to explain all new medications and answers ANY questions I may have concerning my health HIMSELF. I am over the moon happy with Dr B.

Dr. Baliga is incredibly thorough and efficient. He was able to get my thyroid regulated when another endocrinologist in town jacked it up unnecessarily. His office staff is friendly and helpful (in Opelika.) I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Came in to the office very late, asked MAYBE one or two questions (I have had Type 1 diabetes for 65 years, two questions doesn't tell the story), tells the other person in the room (no explanation of who she is), to put me on the GM. Nobody tells me ANYTHING about it or what the routine is. I can go on for hours about how worthless and disorganized this place is. I am talking about the Columbus office. The conversations in the waiting room were very uncomplimentary. It got worse.
in Tallassee, AL |
Dr. Baliga and his staff has really helped me stabilize my condition, which has improved my quality of life. My issues were affecting many other areas of my health as well, so he was able to identify the origination of my problem which had a positive effect on other levels. Very thankful.
