Dr. Balikian is my nephrology doctor at Davita. He treats me very well and treats me like a human being. Always giving me enough time to ask my questions and to provide in depth answers. I feel very lucky to have him as my doctor as I view other doctors in my clinic spend very little time with their patients. I would definitely recommend him to all!

Dr. Balikian is outstanding. He saved my life and was outstaning during my time in the Methodist Hospital Arcadia ICU and in his clinic as my nephrologist. He is personable, knowledgeable and excellent clinician and communicator. His office staff and particularly Lucy are excellent. I cannot endorse Dr Balikain enough.
