Patient Comments (2)
Dr Joseph Baler has been my doctor for a decade. I respect his knowledge. He works with me to provide the medicine I am comfortable taking. He recently began treating my nephew who has significant medical issues. Both the doctor and his staff have worked hard to treat him and form a very good relationship with him. My nephew is now able to control his pain enough to be able to work. Immeasurable value to our family.

Dr. Baler is kind, thorough and competent. In contrast, the nurse is rude and talks down to clients making for a very uncomfortable visit. I feel that customer service should be stellar within any service industry. In my opinion, if an employee is kept on despite how rude she is to clients in front of her employer, it emphasizes the doctor's inability to manage staff. I will likely switch doctors due to this coupled with the wait time to schedule an appointment. Other staff members are polite.
