Dr. Balsom is an intelligent, kind and thorough doctor who has been helpful for many years! I've been seeing him for 10+ years and he always takes the time to listen to all of my issues as well as treat and diagnose anything ailing me. I've been to 3 or 4 other doctors and i've never really felt comfortable talking with them, yet Dr. Balsom breaks that barrier and helps out as much as possible. His nursing staff are very kind and thoughtful which makes visit less stressful.

I visited this doctor for over 2 years. During that time my condition became worse and the specialist I was sent to was both unhelpful and a waste of time and money. No proper diagnostics, no plan, no treatment, no communication. After paying and paying and paying you will be left in the dark. Very hard to explain unless you have been able to be seen by a real doctor in a good working office. It's night and day folks. Good doctors do exist.

As regular patient of Dr Balsom for twenty years, he has provided excellent health care. He takes time to listen and communicates his diagnosis in depth. I respect him for his knowledge as a doctor and as an honorable person. RP

He has been "treating" my husband, a complex patient, for two years now, and the result is that we spent a night in the ER due to untreated conditions. Last appointment my husband asked him point blank what his treatment plan was and this gem of a doctor threw up his hands and basically said "I dunno". I advise you to look elsewhere if you want help with your medical problem because none is forthcoming from this guy.
