Dr. Balaban is an excellent physician, very thorough, easy to communicate with, competent in what he does. This was the second time that he has done a colonoscopy for me. My appointment was not urgent, so I had to wait four months for an appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Balaban to everyone.

I made an appointment for a specific time. However, at this Dr.s office, when they ask you to arrive 30 early, they mean that is your appt time. I arrive with paperwork filled out prior to the appt at 9 sharp. My time is valuable too! I have a job and cannot take an entire day off for a Dr.s appt....more
