in San Antonio, TX |
Dr. Teresita Balderas was my Psychiatrist for many years in Texas and she was the main doctor that was truly vested in finding the right medicine that worked best for me based on my overall family history and genetic background. Her education & concentration is genealogy and as a result that gives her an advantage in being able to help her patients understand not only the mental health but also the other illnesses that we as human beings may be affected by do to our genetics such as diabetes.

The absolute worst.... harsh, rude, does not listen, no compassion.....not worthy of Mass General
Westford, MA |
We did not have a positive experience. She has a very poor bedside manner and did not communicate effectively with us as the family. She made decisions without speaking to us.
Marshfield, MA |
This is not a knee-jerk bad rating. This is months after the experience with Dr. Balderas when we know she was completely wrong with diagnosis and prescribed treatment. Extremely poor bedside manner and listening skills. Stated strong concerns with diagnosis at the time of hospitalization and we later confirmed that she was completely wrong. Refused to consult with neurology on a serious issue resulting from a brain injury. She over prescribed medication
