Patient Comments (2)
in Yarmouth, ME |
A+ Doctor. After having a less than satisfactory experience with another retina specialist in the Portland area, I was so relieved to have found Dr Balles. Was able to get in right away and see him. He treated me for a torn retina. Dr Balles is experienced and talented, and works with a very friendly, informed and kind team that supports him.
in York Beach, ME |
My experience with Dr. Balles was a most positive one in treating my diagnosis of vitreous floaters. I am very happy with the outcome. Dr Balles and his teams in the office and at Mercy Hospital are professional and are highly recommended.
