How disappointing to have such a highly qualified physician be so incompetent regarding patient interaction. Dr Balm was excellent in ordering extensive tests but seemed so incompetent in providing answers. Perhaps none could be found - then just admit you don't know. No harm in that! Don't just guess .So patients beware that if you are given a terminal diagnosis from Dr Balm you may be left in unnecessary trauma. I did appreciate his referral to another neurologist who calmed my fears

Can I rate him below 1 star? He is a severely dysfunctional being, abusive, incompetent. I am working on a full report to the State Board of Medicine but have not much faith in their willingness to really investigate how awful he is. He went so far as to accuse me, in writing in my medical record, of attempting to make him break the Death with Dignity law. I had recorded my visit per ADA accommodaton, had that tape professionally transcribed. He lied. He denied my genetically proven illness!

He has to be the worst Doctor I have ever been to. I was paralyzed all of sudden and was referred by my regular Doctor. He didn't examine my legs even though I was in a wheelchair. He refused to let me speak. Was very very rude and said he didn't want to deal with my problem and walked out. He came up with cokamamy diagnosis of a heart condition which a Cardiologist said my heart was fine. He never ordered any tests or procedures. He basically threw up his hands and walked out saying find anothe
