What People Say About Dr. Jason Balette, MD

Dr.Balette was a doll to work with. He helped me immediately resolve my Gallbladder issues. I made a appoint a week out due to availability he had, the wait was not long in the waiting room and staff was not overly attentive but nice. The nurse came in and was very kind and knowledgeable. Dr.balette didn't rush or make me more nervous then I was. he explained what I needed to hear and put my fears at bay. He did the surgery a week later. It went wonderfully, and I couldn't have asked for better.
