Great Nephrologist! I was close to dialysis and now my creatine function is at 1.79. Blood pressure was 112-56. Heart rate was 51 today. Weight was 188 today. No swelling for over 2 years .He is now seeing me every 5 months. I had a lot of swelling and my creatine function was at 3.8. I would highly recommend Dr. Belusa!

I found Dr. Baluja to be immediately likeable. He listens! He takes a sincere interest in my well being. He explains test results, his concerns and why he orders certain tests and medications. He offers practical advise on general things I may do to improve my health and protect my kidneys. His staff is friendly and you can tell by their cheerful demeanor that they have the utmost respect for Dr. Baluja as do I.

after many years searching for a Dr. Who would take the time and care I finally found someone who cares. Thank you from my heart Dr. Baluja for giving me confidence . After have my kidney and spleen removed due to cancer I felt that I had no hope I had a very hard time after the surgery spent time ICU and hospital. Dr. Kumar and Baluja were so great. And St Anthony hospital okc nurses made sure I would get well. As a health care profess, it's hard finding the perfect Dr you are faith in.
