Friendly staff. Doctor is highly recommended by a referring professional. Calm demeanor. Well qualified. Brief amount of time spent with the doctor. Somewhat disappointed with that aspect of visit. Difficult to have records sent to my other doctors. Slow. All in all 4 stars.

Dr Bala is one person who I will never forget. He did major surgery on me in 1986. I owe my life since then to him. He placed a rod in my back to alleviate chronic pain, pain that I had for 15 years. Without the pain I was able to do things I never dreamed of. In 2019 I finished my doctorate degree in nursing practice and have lived a full life. I’m 63 now. What an amazing man and physician! Forever grateful!

My experience was not a good experience when you call they have you on hold for over 10minutes. I faxed a letter know one calls you back. I am still injury this doctor put you through as much when how long have. I had a stress fracture. What he stated your injury healed when in fact it has not. I am so dissatisfied with this hospital and the experience.
