What People Say About Dr. Elpidia Balbastro, MD

UNPROFESSIONAL!! Relayed information to her about a patient's increasingly aggressive behavior and asked that the source be kept confidential. What does she do at the next appointment? Wait for it..... She tells the patient who and what. Plus, in my opinion, has extremely poor bedside manner. Do yourself a favor and find a different physician!!

She didn't want to do any tests because she said my clots were provoked. I asked her to do tests and we found some issues. I'm going to get another doctor to help me for now on. Very unpleasant experience.

She maybe better off selling used cars. Her passive/aggressive personality combined with a phony compassion makes for a horrible doctor. FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR TO HELP YOU.
