I would not recommend her practice to my family or friends. I feel she is a good doctor but personal care is lacking and communications among staff is lacking. After seeing the Dr. I was told to book a CAT but when the nurse called I was told to book a chest x-ray and blood work which was not discussed in my appointment. After pushing back a CAT was ordered. The CAT request was coded as urgent. I had my CAT on a Wednesday afternoon and was told the results would be available that afternoon. Friday morning I called and talked to the nurse and she read me the report. She said she didn't understand some of it but she could send it to me. I asked for the doctor to call me, I was very anxious! I was told she would not call me on Friday she was doing admin. work. I called back Monday at 11:00 and was told the doctor had not looked at it yet. Email came in from doctor saying everything was ok. Would have preferred a call back. I feel all they want are tests! No personal caring.

Dr. Bala has been treating my husband since 2009 and myself since 2010. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and caring. Dr. Bala has even taken care of my mother! My family is fortunate to have her, the nurses, and staff taking care of us. I highly recommend Dr. Bala and have confidence in her treatment decisions.

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Bala! I never feel rushed and she always takes the time to explain things so that I understand. She is very patient with all my questions and is truly caring and extremely knowledgeable. I can’t and wouldn’t want to imagine being on this journey with any other oncologist.
