I was referred to Dr. Baleeiro by my allergist. I’m always warmly greeted by Dr. Baleeiro. Under his care my severe asthma has improved significantly, and my medication usage reduced. My quality of life has improved greatly! He is sincere, thoughtful, calm and reassuring. I’ve never felt hurried, if I’ve forgotten to ask a question and return to the nurses’ station, he takes additional time to speak with me. Dr. Baleeiro stays up-to-date in pulmonary and related medical fields.

Dr. Baleeiro was my mother's doctor over ten years ago. He did a great job with her, so when I started having ashtma issues, I went to him for some help. He discussed my treatment options and started me on some medication that has helped reduce my wheezing issues. I feel confident in his ability to treat me as he is well educated and he takes his time explaining everything to his patients.
