A+ Service!!

Dr. Balcarek is the most thorough physician that I have ever seen. Other physicians allow their patients fifteen minutes of their time even if you need more time with them. The staff are all professional yet still warm and caring. I also really appreciate being seen when the time for my appointment arrives. Needless to say, I will see Dr. B as long as he is practicing.
