Patient Comments (3)
Rochester, NY |
Dr. Balkissoon is a very caring and skilled physician. I needed a knee replacement, and as I have Parkinson's, the surgery and recovery was complicated. Dr. Balkissoon did a fantastic job with the surgery, and he and his PA have been top notch through my recovery.

I required a complete right hip replacement in May 2016, after 5 yrs+ of constant pain. From the very beginning I felt that Dr Balkissoon really cared...and he REALLY does!! His bedside manner is A+ By following his recommendations, I now have NO PAIN and full freedom of movement, with very few limitations. My husband and I are very happy, no, WE ARE DELIGHTED!! to have found such a competent a surgeon. Highly recommended: 5 stars.
