My brother, who has dementia, had his ears cleaned by Balfour. Balfour could see he was in pain, and said nothing to him. Then, when I had my brother fit for hearing aids, they said he had abrasions in his ears. I would NEVER go back to this doctor.

Dr Balfour is very straightforward, and gets right to the point. If you have questions, he takes time to explain so you understand.

I think he was rude and condescending. Acted as if my having Tinnitus was a joke.
