Dr Bala’s PA, Megan, and the infusion team at Cedar Park Regional Hospital also deserve a 5-star rating. As a cancer survivor I have always received very compassionate care from all of them. I couldn’t receive better care than what they have provided !

Very Impressed
This was my first visit with Dr. Balasubramanian and I was totally blown away with my experience. I've been a patient with Texas Oncology for over 10 years and she is my 3rd doctor. She took the time to listen to my concerns and experiences, gave me options that I had not heard about or explored before. I appreciate that she researched additional treatments and presented the options to myself and husband, so we could investigate and collaborate on the best possible treatment for me. I have heard very positive things about Dr. Balasubramanian from other patients I am acquainted with and from my own family practice doctor, and they were correct in their assessment of her. I look forward to working with her in the future for my care.

Relocated to be near Texas Oncology
I was treated out of town but I wanted to live closer to my grown children and I'm so glad to have Dr. Balasubramanian (Dr. Bala) when I relocated to Cedar Park. Dr. Bala is very kind and wants to listen and understand. She has patience to explain anything I questioned even the repetitive questions (sometimes chemo fog makes me forgetful) but Dr. Bala gladly repeats the answers with some new explanations. I believe Dr. Bala has a very good staff, receptionists, nurses, assistants and pharmacists. They (minus 1 or 2) all have very well-manners and patience. I love her phlebotomists. Very gentle and kind with inserting needles. There was a time when I didn't feel like having a trainee do my port insert, the nurse was very quick to change trainee to professional nurse. No questions. I felt respected. (I eventually had the same trainee do my port at another time because I felt better and trainee did a great job!). Their teamwork including Dr. Balasubramanian are awesome!

Wish she could be my primary care physician.
Dr Bala was my mother's oncologist before mine. My experience with her while treating my mother was outstanding in every way. We couldn't save my mother, and it seemed to take a toll on Dr Bala. Less than a year later, she was forced to inform me of my cancer. She was visibly shaken, knowing what we'd just been through with my mother. I have been dealing with Dr Balasubramania for last 15 years, and would never consider seeing a different doctor. I have actually ignored career opportunities that would have forced me to move away, because I didn't want to leave her care. My cancer is so far incurable, but manageable long term. She is compassionate, professional, full of personality, provides guidance and hope. She can be gentle and firm at the same time, a difficult combination. I can't say enough positive things about Dr Balasubramanian to do her justice. I am lucky to be her patient.

Dr. Balasubramian is without a doubt one of the top doctors in her field. She is extremely knowledgeable of the complexities of oncology and how they relate to the treatment of the cancer itself, but just as important, how it effects the body and mind of the patient. A rare quality indeed. The doctor you want on your side when fighting cancer!!!
