Dr. Balde has cared for both my husband and myself for several years. On a scale of 1-10 she is a 12. She is and had been very attentive to our care, she knows which questions to ask and which labs and exams to order, she is a great knowledgeable teacher, one never leaves her office without recommendations to improve your life and health. Her physicals and exams are top tier, if you want a good physical come see her. Dr. always encourages us to do the things that promote our good health such as diet, exercise and healthy social activities and now to take all the COVID 19 precautions we can. She makes referrals as she thinks need and does not perform heroics or guesses. We are glad she is young and we are old, we can be her patients in our transition to eternal life...

Dr. Balde has been my doctor for the past 10 years. I am truly blessed to have such excellent, compassionate care. She listens to me and cares about the whole person not just my high blood pressure. The office staff reflects her caring. When I have a problem they somehow find an appointment for me. What a comfort to have help available when needed.

Dr. Jennifer Balde has been my primary care provider for a number of years. She is by far one of the best, if not the best, physician I have ever had. She is current with medical research and she cares deeply about all her patients.Her attitude informs the actions of her staff. Her staff, including a RN, MA, and front office staff work together seamlessly to provide excellent service to the patients. My daughter, who is working on a PhD on Medical Research at the University of Washington, respects Dr. Balde very much.

Dr Balde is a very caring person. She explains the procedures, lab works that she orders and promptly calls you for results. I never had to call her office for my results. During my office visits, Dr. Balde spends enough time discussing my lab results, always asks if have any concerns or questions regarding my health. I always have a good feeling that I am well taken cared of when I leave her office. I highly recommend Dr Balde to everyone who wants an excellent, caring provider.

Dr. Balde is very thorough and reviews all aspects of your health - physical, mental, even dental health. She makes sure you know your medications and referrals before she ends the appointment. She makes it a point to use not just pharmacologic treatment, but ensures you also have reading materials and other resources to live a healthy lifestyle.
