Horrible, unprofessional, rude, deceitful
I had an excellent Dr with this practice who was treating me for a little over a year but unfortunately he left. I was redirected to Balar. I won’t even refer to him as a professional as he is undeserving. He didn’t follow any of my current treatments from the prior Dr. and he cancelled an appointment that I had driven over an hour to get too and he didn’t even have the decency to tell me ahead of time. During my second and last time seeing him he was very rude and unwilling to help or listen to my needs. Steer clear, he doesn’t care to help!

Do t trust
He will cut you short when you explain your needs and speak over you, he will tell you one thing but document another on his system, staff besides him is rude as all not all but some of them, states he sees a problem one visit then a visit or two later it’s all in your head.

World Class Doctor, Best in his field bar none.
After visiting several other surgeons for my shoulder, neck and spine, Dr. Balar was spot on. Professional, thorough, courteous, and was able to diagnose the root of the problems and provide relief together with a game plan for future remedy to consider. Best in his field bar none.

Great Doctor and Staff
I recently had an appointment with Dr Balar at in the Princeton office of Princeton Brain and Spine. Dr. Balar was supportive, professional and caring. He and his staff attentively listened to everything I described about my condition. I never felt rushed and was treated with great respect. They asked probing questions, and probed, and prodded my body to help determine the source of my difficulties. They showed an interest in making the correct evaluation. He explained his diagnoses and recommended a treatment path. Dr Balar and his entire staff were not only very professional but also patient, pleasant, and courteous. I really don’t like to go to see doctors, but if you have a need to, this is about as pleasant as it gets. I would definitely recommend Dr Balar to anyone who may need his services.

Dr. Balar was extremely supportive, professional and caring. He listened to everything I described about my condition, and he completely explained all of the procedures he was recommending and made sure I understood the options. I never felt rushed when I was with him, and he always treated me with great respect. I have to also comment that all of the doctor's assistants were very nice, professional and diligent in their initial consultations with me before I saw Dr. Balar. They always showed an interest to make sure they had all of my symptoms fully documented for Dr. Balar's reference. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Balar to my family and friends.

I have been a high performance sports athlete my whole life. I have dealt with 7 significant sports surgeries. I met Dr. Balar 10 years ago and are extremely pleased with his professionalism, individual attention, and capacity to keep me out of the operating room. His multifaceted approach to dealing with sports injuries and musculoskeletal problems has been nothing short of amazing. I trust and recommend Dr. Balar highly. Want to avoid surgery?

I am not the one who usually writes reviews but.. Due to my love for sports and being a weekend warrior, I have been a Dr. Balar' s patient for a couple years... I can't thank him enough to get me back on my feet, running and participating in my events. He is so patient, spends enough time with you, exactly asking the right questions. I am so grateful for his knowledge, calm personality and his staff. The girls are so caring and accommodating. Thank you so much Dr. Dhimant Balar.

I saw Dr. Balar recently to seek a second opinion on a sports injury. He appears to be one of those doctors who think the patient is a complete idiot, must not be listened to, and must be talked down to. When I was trying to relate my symptoms, he kept interrupting me and shutting me up. He was extremely rude and condescending. I found this doubly regrettable as I am an accomplished and successful businessman as well as a highly educated scientist; and a relative doctor is his exact opposite.
