I saw Dr. Balan in the past for a couple of years until she had my health back to normal. I liked her very much then. I have returned now due to a thyroid issue. She is pleasant and interested in my issues and discussed my health in a professional way. I know I will be well cared for even if my tests do not come back with the best news. Despite how busy she is, she made me feel she had all the time in the world to take care of me.

Dr. Balen is kind, empathetic, and super smart. I see her for Diabetes, Hypothyroid, Hyperprolactemia, and a Pituitary Tumor. I have multiple other chronic conditions, stemming from Ehlers-Danilos Syndrome -> Dysautonomia -> etc... She is able to look at everything that is going on with my body and make good decisions that improve my quality of life. I’m excited to see what else she can ‘fix’ for me. Kudos to Dr. Bindibal Balen.

TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE. Dr Balan was cold and uncompassionate. I was overcharged due to a mix up with my insurance and it has been over 5 months of me still trying to chase down the refund the office owed me. The billing department was NO help -- never answered the phone or returned my calls. Please go anywhere other than this facility.

Dr Balan is a wonderful, caring doctor! She treated me for throid cancer over 10 years ago and continues to monitor my condition, which is in complete remission. Her gentle demeanor is very reassuring when being treated for a stressful illness. I am so grateful for her care!
