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.

Dr. Balar is my go to “Doc” for numerous issues. He has a fantastic demeanor & expertise beyond belief. He listens & understands; delivering a "tailored" solution. I had a lower back pain-foot issue; my docs had many specialists guessing, tests/meds - Cancer? Neuropathy? Really?? – halting my personal & professional life. Dr. Balar reviewed my results, had a diagnosis & plan to get my life back. Now - my 13 year old son's sport injury, and husband's knee injury - I recommend him HANDS DOWN!!

Dr. Balar is an amazing doctor, and he has never failed to help with any injuries I have had. Every time I ask him any questions I may have, he patiently answers them all, and makes sure that I understand everything that is happening. I greatly appreciate how caring he is with his patients and I will, of course, continue to recommend him. I can trust him and always learn from him, and his level of care and dedication to the field of sports medicine is remarkable.

5 stars to Dr. Balar & his staff! I’ve been seeing him for years. Never a long wait and a clean, welcoming office. Recently I was in such severe pain that I could barely walk. His staff was kind & compassionate and he was professional and caring while diagnosing my problem and answering all of my questions. Dr Balar was gentle when treating and relieving my pain. He referred me to all the right doctors and therapists that could treat the cause of my pain. I recommend him to family & friends!

Dr. Balar is great. I had a torn labrum in my shoulder and he was able to quickly identify the issues and showed me how to strengthen the muscles around the tear and not need surgery. Highly recommend.

I played for the Indian Cricket team and now coach cricket professionally. Dr. Dhimant Balar has been my go-to with any age and sports related medical issues. I have also recommended Dr. Balar to my students who have also greatly benefited from his care. I strongly suggest taking Dr. Balar's help not only for injury recovery but also for injury prevention to all athletes.

I was an intern under Dr. Balar and he is an amazing doctor and a wonderful educator. He has helped me learn a lot about sports medicine and has given me the opportunity to go to football games with him. I learned a lot from these experiences and will never forget them! I’ve had the pleasure of seeing patients with him. He really listens to any concerns anyone has and only wants what’s best for his patients. The staff members there are all amazing and hardworking. It was a great experience!
