I have been remiss in not giving this review by now. My surgery was 2 years a gall bladder removal. Following surgery I was given medicine which I didn’t and didn’t take. I had no pain whatsoever, in fact I was at work the next day. Dr Balsama spent time with me before the surgery, letting me know what to expect. He was there after surgery making sure there were no issues and there weren’t. If was getting my gallbladder out again, there one person I would go to—Dr Balsama.

Thank you Dr.Louis Basama ,Kathy, Chris & your whole team for saving my life. You all have made this experience great. Not only did you do the Gastric sleeve but you repaired my 10 cm diaphramic hernia and removed a lipoma from my heart that was causing me to go into left heart failure by pushing my heart to the left. Not only did you give me my life back with confidence you also removed all of the restrictions and fears that have been preventing me from truly living my life to the fullest.

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.
