The worst dr I have ever seen. Has 150 patients on his caseload, and therefore does not have time to spend with patients. Passes patients off to a nurse practictioner. Does not answer questions about treatments, just prescribes Tysabri. Zero patient care, can never get through to anyone in neuro dept.

I have been a patient of Dr. Balabanov for the past 5 years and he is the best neurologist I've ever seen. I feel heard when I see him, he is very knowledgable, and responds to all my questions and concerns. He has an excellent bedside manner that I had never experienced before with previous Neurologists, I feel that he truly cares about his patients well-being. I cannot continue to travel out of state but I want my new neurologist to consult with Dr. B because I trust his expertise.
