Dr. Balaraman is one of the best physicians I have ever encountered. I have interacted with many physicians in my 70 years and she is not only very skilled in her specialty; she is an excellent communicator and has a level of compassion that is really wonderful.

Dr. Balaraman is extremely kind, thoughtful and compassionate, she shows support to all of her patients. Dr. Balaraman is also exceedingly knowledgeable and although very busy, she takes the time to answer any and all questions you may have and if there are any concerns they are addressed immediately. I am thankful to have been referred to such a wonderful doctor.

Dr. Balaraman was recommended to my wife by our cardiologist for a platelet problem one year before I was diagnosed with non=Hodgkins lymphoma. I was impressed with her expertise and care and thus made an easy decision for her to be my oncologist. She put together a team of doctors that followed my case with expertise resulting in good outcomes. Her care, compassion and bedside manner are tops; but most importantly, she is extremely knowledgeable, respected by her peers. Do not hesitate.

As I reflect on this very serious health challenge, I am brought to tears at the level of compassion, concern, thoroughness, empathy, kindness and expertise Dr. Savitha Balaraman has afforded me. I don't take lightly nor for granted the professionalism that I have received. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Balaraman and this group of professionals, if given the opportunity.

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!
