I would select 0 stars if possible. My child has a broken hand, and unfortunately this piece of insurance milking trash has no regard for parental/patient concerns. He is an arrogant, complacent pig headed doctor that immediately discredited the fact that he was further damaging our childs hand(over time xrays to prove negative bone movement), forced our childs hand into a strenuous position to try to prove that his hand was healing fine which caused our child severe pain then ignored the child.

A meticulous surgeon who had my best interests at heart from start to finish. The abdominoplasty procedure Dr. Balderrama performed on me came out so beautifully well, I cannot thank him enough. Dr. Balderrama's nurse, bookkeeper and receptionist were all so helpful and accomodating to my wants and needs. His nurse Nicky gave me a big hug after my last visit, the bookkeeper Chris had my back on a way to help me save my money and the receptionist was cheerful and so personable. 10 out of 10 thx

Exemplary physician (excellent office staff) who helped me decide for surgery for a Dupuytrens malady that has bothered me for years. The office is quiet and relaxing, one of the best medical office experiences in town.

This Doctor was just awful. From the moment he introduced himself, he was preoccupied and very condescending, He was more interested in finding out what other kind of work he could get out of me instead of taking care of what I needed. When I told him I would be moving soon he completely shut me out. All the while he was sniffing, sniffing and sniffing and bouncing off the walls. It was a strange experience for sure. However, the office staff were very nice and helpful.

I would most certainly not recommend this doctor. He keeps an open door when consulting his patients and every word he says can be heard by other patients in reception area. He is loud and condescending. I found it impossible to relate my concerns and felt I was wasting his time.
