First time patient. Appointment was at 11:00 dr didn’t see me until 11:45. There were three other people that left before me. Dr was pretty elderly. Office needs a revamp. Will not be going back even though he was kind. Needs some focus on client needs.

Doctor Bale is one of the most thorough and compassionate doctors I have ever seen. I would highly recommend him as a family doctor. He doesn't stop until he finds the root of the problem you are dealing with. Linda from Spokane Washington March 30, 2017
