I was treated by dr Jay Balachandran at Ascension Columbia St. Mary's Hospital Ozaukee with serious lung problem. And then follow up treatment in his office. Treatment was very successful. Dr. helped me with sleep apnea as well. My family and I really appreciated the care with which Dr. Balachandran approaches any and all concerns. He is always very attentive, thorough, and reassuring. We are very happy to have Dr. Balachandra as our pulmonary problem doctor.

Lyubov Rashragovich – Oct 15, 2020
Terrifying to me that he was teaching medical students. He missed my narcolepsy (I have obvious facial cataplexy) and did not even order a sleep study. He instead told me to try to treat my hypersomnia with ADHD medicines from psychiatry. I am still on a leave of absence from university (this will be my 9th year on leave for narcolepsy with cataplexy). I do not recommend him to professionals/executives/students who need problems fixed very quickly. He was not compassionate and was not knowledgeable about diagnostics or medicines. If he isn't enrolled in the narcolepsy REMS program, then he should have referred me to an enrolled colleague.
