Dr. Balart is an excellent physician. He takes his time to explain his treatment plan and answer any questions you may have. He explains why he is changing medicine or a dosage and what to expect along with what changes to my health need to be brought to his attention. I feel better educated about my condition and what to watch for once I have left my appointment.
