I am a physician in another state and I was fortunate enough to have my family member under the care of Dr. Balan. He is an extremely caring, kind and diligent physician who immediately was able to connect with my family member and provide excellent care. I am grateful for all he is doing and am so happy to have found someone like him to take care of my family member.
