Terrible visit with this provider, contradicted what my cardiologist said (another AHI provider). Talked to me like I was stupid and acted like I had no buisness taking up any of his time.

Needing an ICD was quite a shock but Dr. Balaban helped me understand why I needed it and trust that the procedure would be a success. I can't recommend Dr. Balaban and his staff enough!

I had an ablation in 2007 and Dr. Balaban was professional and courteous and ensured I understood the procedure before it happened.
