I went to see Dr. Baluja for cluster headaches. I was impressed that he was from Johns-Hopkins University and seemed to care about my well being. That all changed. He forbid any other doctor from seeing his patients. He told me that he could tell from my aura that I had a great deal of head pain. He solicited me for $200.00 out of pocket (which I did not pay) and demanded that I spend a session with him performing Magic Touch to correct the problem with my aura. If you see this guy RUN AWAY !!

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
