    Dr Balsama is one of the most down to earth Drs that I have ever encountered!!! Leaves no details unsaid. After my surgery, he spent time explaining everything to my husband in detail and easy to understand language!! Answered all questions and made sure my family had a full understanding of everything done. I highly recommend Dr. Balsama. Already have a friend and family member seeing him for their surgery.
    Dr. Balsama was amazing. I don't need to say anything else.
