I was diagnosed with lung cancer in January of 2015. It metastisized to my breast and now is an agressive stage iv. Dr, Balaraman has been my "angel" throughout this period.She has recommended and supervised different treatments, advised us of trials and assistance for our needs, arranged immediate hospitalization when needed. Other doctors state that she is excellent in returning their calls promptly for consultation. We credit her for our positive attitude and improvement . Now in remission
in White Lake, MI |
Dr. Balaraman consistently demonstrates her vast knowledge and experience in the field of oncology; her ability to work with other professionals, her value of each person she has contact with; and her compassion. I say all this as a caregiver. My husband has been under Dr. Balaraman's care for over six years now, so I am fully qualified to vouch for her integrity as a physician and a partner in my husband's treatment.

Dr. Balaraman was highly recommended to me by my surgeon. From the first appointment Dr. Balaraman has and continues to be very thorough, explains the treatment plan and purpose, takes time to explain the process and any questions I have. She is cautious when new symptoms arise and follows through as symptoms dictate and relays information. She will see you on short notice if such an issue arises and even under such circumstance she takes her time with you. Dr. Balaraman is very caring.
in Detroit |
I have always found Dr. Balaraman to be attentive to my concerns, patient and thorough with my questions and fears, encouraging and cheerful in all of our meetings. My health and well-being have been her principle concerns. She has been careful to be aware of the latest developments in treatment for my specific disease and to be bold in applying her knowledge and skill in her work with me. I would recommend Dr. Balaraman enthusiastically to anyone in need of an excellent oncologist who cares!
