Poor bedside manners: he left the door open while talking to me. His only means of diagnosing my issues was obtaining a medical history and looking in my ears. He was not informative but somewhat cynical, telling me ultimately telling me the way to deal with my dizziness is stop medications and don't fall.

Dr Ballecers staff are kind and professional. Office has a welcoming vibe that puts you at ease. Dr Ballecer is a thoughtful man who takes the time necessary to understand your problem. He moves quickly from diagnosis to treatment. I like the fact that he doesn't overtreat, and/or order unnecessary tests. I would strongly recommend Dr Ballecer and his competent staff to anyone in need of an ENT.

I think my computer was hacked. I went to this doctor almost 2 yrs. ago. he was thorough and knowledgeable. took his time and explained things in a professional manner. probably would return if something came up.

I have seen Dr. Ballecer and he has the worst bedside manner of a Dr. I have ever seen. He treated me for a paralyzed vocal cord, I paid my bill, and they claimed they never received it, they continued to hassle me and I continued to through the bill in the trash!

He prescribed an antibiotic that had two Black Box warnings from the government for a sinus infection despite clear warnings that the antibiotic was not indicted for sinus infections as it was linked to serious side effects. After my health was severely damaged, he passed me off to someone else to try to restore my health. It's been 15 months and I am still far from recovered. He said he was sorry, which doesn't help with the pain and weakened condition.

Waited 1hr before called me in then waited 30 min in room before doc came in.

I went to Dr. Ballecer about two years ago because of a clogged ear. He spent less than five minutes with me and concluded I needed tubes in my ears. I scheduled the surgery but backed out at the last minute. Two years later, I go to see a different Fresno ENT (at Cen. Valley ENT). The examination was thorough. The clogged feeling I have is hearing loss, and the Dr. suspects I have otosclerosis, a malformation of the bones of the inner ear. Surgery would have been unnecessary.
