    Patient Comments (1)
    in Nahant, MA |
    In the spring of 2015, Dr. Balcom performed a a/v fistula surgery on me (dialysis access surgery) while quite nervous, about it, he thoroughly explained the procedure. All went very well. After the access fully matured, both my PCP & Nephrologist, along with nurses and technicians remarked on how strong the 'bruit' (sound and feeling of the flow of blood) was from the fistula. I continue to use him, for fistulagrams & highly recommend him.
