Visited Dr. Balguma for a certain issue and he explained all his concerns, my options, the possible pros/cons of certain procedures very clearly. Everything was straight forward, and honest, and he eased some of my concerns. There was no wait. Highly recommended.

My husband had bursitis, his regular doctor was unavailable because of scheduling issues, and, as a result, saw Dr. Balguma. My husband's experience was very favorable. When my doctor left his practice, and I needed to find a new doctor that accepted new patients, my husband referred me to Dr. Balguma. My experience with Dr. Balguma has been excellent. He is very patient, a good listener, provides explanations that I understand, and is a professional. Thanks Dr. Balguma.
