Reply
I want to express my sincere appreciation for the professional care given to my grandmother. Our experience at this facility was of the best we have ever encountered. Dr. Balian was very knowledgeable and caring. He is a very friendly doctor and his staff is also warm and welcoming. His treatment plan really worked and my grandma is no longer in any pain, despite our initial hesitation. We are very grateful to Dr. Balian and recommend him for your rehabilitation needs! -Sarkisyans
