I've been seeing Dr. Balish 2 to 3 times per year for about 10 years. I have glaucoma and under his care we been able to keep the pressure well under control. I think he does an excellent job at answering questions and I never feel rushed. His assistants have also been very capable and have given me prompt service if I need a prescription refill. Also the wait time is very good, about 15 minutes, much better than other ophthalmologists I've seen.

Sadly, my experience with Dr Bailish was poor. He performed Lasik surgery and said I would have exceptional vision afterwards. For a year after that surgery I had large halos around all lights and by the end of that year, my near distance was already fading. He did agree to undo the surgery and said I would have near binocular vision once it was finished. This did not happen. I still see halo's, I have lost my near sight and am wearing readers again. I asked for a refund but was denied.
