Dr. Balcha is the best doctor I have ever had in my life. And I'm am old man! He asks very good questions. He not only listens to what you say, he is actually interested in you as a person. He is knowledgeable and highly competent. You can tell that he cares about his patients, and he treats them like his friends.

I represented doctors for years before retirement. And as the author of Consumer Contract Law in Virginia, I understand what a good doctor should be. My primary care physician retired in August, and I tried Dr. Balcha today, 9/11/2020. I was impressed beyond belief. I would highly recommend him. An A+. A 10 on a scale that runs only to a high of 5. Thomas A Leggette

Dr. Balcha is a great doctor who actually takes time to talk to you, and since he's relatively new to the Inova network, you can actually get an appointment with him. I highly recommend him.
