Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Balderas was the best. So glad I chose him as my primary care doctor.
Very professional and thorough in addressing my concerns with my health.
Professional, quick, and friendly will definitely be making my primary care doctor after this first experience!!!
Best doctor I’ve been to in years. Very knowledgeable and kind. Seems to really care about his patients and their wellness. So happy to of found him.
He is very kind and helpful, He is currently helping me find the right anti depressant and I feel very positive about it. His recommendations are pretty spot on.
Very quick, thorough and easy process. I hate going to the doctor, but he made me feel very comfortable.
Very personalable and professional. Explains everything very clearly. Highly recommend and look forward to him being my doctor going forward. Bonus points they have on site Xray and techs for blood work and such
It's always a good experience. Everyone in this office is professional and extraordinarily nice.
I just had a simple consultation, but Dr Balderas was excellent, knowledgable, helpful, and perfect.
The doctor was great! Office staff was professional and courteous. Waited about 30-45 min but did not mind since I booked my appt the day before! I now have a new PCP :)
Dr. Balderas was very good at listening, questioning, and paying attention to me and my issues. He came up with a very good plan for treatment, and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Alison A.
I came in a little early and they were able to see me right away. Very nice office staff and physician. Very happy with everything associated to my visit.
I like this place. The assistants are nice, the doc is great and seems genuinely concerned about my health.
He’s very helpful and knowledgeable. Isn’t afraid to be real either
Excelente profesional de la medicina, te da un trato confiable y ameno y sobre todo, te ayuda a obtener la mejor medicina a un menor costo.
I really enjoy how Dr, Balderas' relates to me and my family. He never seems rushed to get out the door. His approach is by far the best I've seem in a long time. He will be my primary Dr. in 2018.
I always love going to see Dr. Balderas. He explains things to the point but is still warm. His staff is SUPER friendly and authentic. I'm happy I found him as my PCP.
I felt like he really genuinely cared about my concerns and well being. I didn't feel like just another patient.
I was able to get an appointment the same day. As well as allergy testing at short notice.
I faint when I see my own blood, and I had to get blood drawn for a physical. I told Dr Balderas’ assistants about this and EVERYONE helped to make this easier. The nurse, the phlebotomist, and Dr Balderas himself worked together to make sure I was safe during the blood draw. I did not faint and I was comfortable and appropriately distracted while it was happening. It was one of the best blood drawing experiences I’ve ever had. Was also impressed at how much time I actually got with Dr Balderas. The office was busy and he still came back multiple times to check on me after the blood draw.
Always willing to take time and listen open to medical questions and what is the best for patient care
Totally awesome great bedside matter very knowledgeable and just shoots it straight let’s you know your options and explains everything very well and easy to understand
The best physician and office team that I have ever seen! They are attentive and thorough while making the visit pleasurable even when I am not feeling well or in a good mood!!!
Everyone in the office is friendly and helpful. I only went in for an annual physical and it was my first time going into this office. So there wasn't really much to discuss with Dr. Balderas. He looked at my previous medical records from NYC, asked questions, and informed me of the next process regarding blood tests. Overall, a pleasant experience. Definitely returning.
Always a great experience. Wonderful staff too.
Dr Balderas was great at considering all possibilities and thinking outside the box.
Excellent experience, you are treated like a human being. They genuinely care about their patients!!
My experience was amazing!! Today my boyfriend and I had an appointment with Dr. Balderas and everything that could have gone very wrong didn’t. First, we got to the appointment and my boyfriend forgot his insurance card, so we had to go all the way back to our house to grab it. The front desk lady was very sweet in allowing us to do that and getting back and getting us in right away. Not only that, but we had asked to be in the same room for our physicals and the staff has no issues with that either. The nurse was very sweet and funny as we joked around and had fun making us feel better about going to a doctor. ??Then doctor Balderas came in and did both of our physicals, told us everything we needed to know about our health, and he was very nice. He has an awesome personality too! Needless to say, I think Lewis Family Medicine will be our family practitioner for a long time to come. ?? five stars all around!
The whole staff was amazing.
Dr. Balderas was very attentive, courteous and informative. I would highly recommend hin and his staff.
It's always excellent!!
As always, excellent. Dr. Balderas and his staff are great!
Very enjoyable visit, as always. The service was better than any other doctor I have had in the past. Very glad that I now have Dr. Balderas.
Professionalism, and very comfortable environment.
Awesome people! Felt respected and cared for.
I am still absolutely and completely pleased with my experience with Dr. Balderas and his staff. I definitely made the right decision to use Lewis Family Medicine as my primary care facility.
Friendly staff and nice office. Was brought back right at my appointment time which has never happened at other Clinics. Would recommend.
Very friendly office staff and nurses. Asked questions and actually listened.
This was hands down the best experience I have ever had at the doctors office. Dr. Balderas is an expert and I am very thankful for this establishment and doctor. Very recommendable.
Dr. Balderas is an incredible doctor! He is patient, knowledgeable and kind. He listens to what you say and let's you know what's going on and how he can help you fix it. If you're looking for a doctor, I HIGHLY recommend him and his staff.
Dr. Balderas is great doctor. Nice environment and friendly staff. -Mario
He was the most courteous, intelligent doctor I have ever been to! He spends a good amount of time actually hearing what you have to say and the feedback he gives is actually personal and relevant! 10/10 would recommend!
One of the very best experiences I have ever had when visiting any doctors office. Very professional, and friendly staff, as was Doctor Balderas. I highly recommend Dr. Balderas, and Lewis Family Medicine.
Everybody was very nice, and the doctor had great bedside manner. Highly recommend!
Had to get a referral for in-network specialist. We talked about the issue in length and he recommended someone who had experience with my issue. Highly recommend.
I thought it was unfair that he couldn't perscribe me my anti-anxiety medication though even though I have a red flag I have a reason my primary care doctor before balderas was sending me to pain management. When I had a thorn under my foot & I took me about a month to find out I had a thorn. Going to different doctors because I did not know what I had under my foot I guess that's why the red flag appears even though I have the red flag that doesn't mean he can't perscribe me my medication! The pharmacist told me it's not the DEA it's just between the pharmacies I don't know if I filled a script at a different pharmacy, he referred me to a phychiatrist and he has the worst reviews I just hope he does doesn't waste my time with the phychriatrist he referred me to! I am actually on klonapin my doctor was able to refill my medication thank god! Because I can't be off of it I've been on it for to many years and I'm scared of getting a seizure! They know for a fact that I There could be some serious side effects once I'm off this medicine! So again his practice met my crediantals but not the part where he had the the option to fill it. Also I told the nurse that I had a script for oxycodone and hydrocodone and I filled it but haven't taken any then he said I came out negative on everything welll of course I had ran out of my klonapin also I told the nurse I haven't taken any opiates in about a week! The doctor was great don't get me wrong but overall i would give it a 5 star
Dr. Balderas answered all of my questions and immediately came up with a treatment plan to address my medical concerns. Very knowledgeable and caring.
Excellent, professional service.
Clean environment. Friendly staff. Very cordial doctor
Concise and to the point to help me address the issues I came to the office for. Very helpful Dr. and staff.
Another great experience with Dr. B and his staff. Polite, professional and extremely helpful. I look forward to a long and healthful relationship because of the caring dedication I have felt after only two visits.
Super impressed with Dr. Balderas and his team. All nice, concerned, respectful and professional.
I feel Dr doesn't understand my concerns. He needs to be more caring and not be flippant about my chronic condition.... He is a good Dr but I just think he needs to be kinder about my feelings. I feel embarrassed as it seems like he thinks I'm being childish...
Dr. Balderas, as a former Army doctor was exactly the primary care physician I was looking for - I think he he gets me after just one visit. I have health issues that are just as much my fault as they are the fault of aging. I truly believe that Dr. B will help me get to where I would like to be health wise. I will never talk bad about my former VA providers because they have a very hard job, but the personal treatment and the excellent staff at Lewis Family practice truly made me feel like I made the right choice for my healthcare needs.
Best hospitality I've ever experience with a whole staff while being at the doctors office. Really makes it much easier to relax especially when you don't feel good. I can't thank them enough!!
Dr. Balderas is a great Dr. He took the time to talk to me and understand exactly what was going on. I can't tell you how thankful I am to have him as my primary care Dr.
Dr. Balderas and staff were very kind to me as usual. They are very efficient and never keep me waiting long. I've recommended this office to multiple friends!
Dr. Dagoberto Balderas , is very professional. He is one of the best doctors in Austin. He will evaluate & treat your symptoms until you are well. -Mario
My go-to doctor; always have a great experience in his office. Great bedside manner with a super friendly and helpful staff.
I was incredibly nervous. It was hard for me to deal with being ill and having so much to deal with while looking for a new primary doctor. I was immediately put at ease from the front desk all the way through the duration of the appointment. I feel comfortable proceeding and look forward to feeling better.
I was very comfortable, all assistants were friendly, Dr. Balderas always does a good job.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. It was great to have my blood drawn in the office during the same visit. I will definitely go back!
He was very attentive to all of my questions and needs. All of the tests I needed done were performed quickly and with care. I'm excited that he is my primary care physician in Austin.
As always, the staff is very welcoming and professional. Dr. Balderas is a competent professional with humility and confidence. This translates in being an effective listener with a collaborative approach to achieve the very best care for the patient.
What a great experience! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and Dr. Balderas and his staff took the time to really listen and answer my questions. I will definitely go back.
Awesome Dr. feel very lucky to have found him and have him as my primary care physician.
Dr Balderas is very professional, I've seen him now over months and he it always professional
He's professional and very caring. Great communicator.
Needed an urgent appointment for a last minute trip Scouting. Scheduled late at night was seen at 9am. Amazing. Thank You!
The doctor and his staff were very swift to acknowlede my issue and tend to me. I was in and out before my scheduled appointment time. The doctor swiftly referred me to a specialist for my issue and I was actually able to get to the specialists office and be seen within 20 min.
Dr. Balderas is knowledgeable, professional, and caring. His sincere interest in his patient is obvious and he inspires great confidence. He is an Army veteran who served with distinction. I'm delighted to have found him, and I recommend him highly!
Dr. Balderas and his staff were all such a pleasure to work with! He really seems to care and I appreciate the time he took to listen and find the most helpful solution. Would highly recommend! Very convenient location too.
He listens to his patients and he is very professional when it comes to his work. It's rare to find Doctors who shows you that they genuinely care about their patients and Dr Balderas is that Doctor.
I recently met Dr Balderas for a new patient consult and he was very patient and understanding of my health history and listened without rushing me. Office location was convenient with lots of parking.
You can't ask for better staff or a better Doctor. A+++++.
Dr Balderas is one of the best doctors I have ever been seen by. He is very attentive and listens to all concerns., His staff is very friendly and courteous and go to great lengths to accommodate patients needs.
I went in for allergy testing on July 6, 2017 with Juana. The appointment was excellent. Ms. Juana was very kind and extremely professional. Dr. Balderas also came in to see me after the tests were completed (I did not expect that). He too was so nice and he's always professional. Loved my experience.
Excellent care and felt very well taken care of on my first visit. They did a very thorough job, and Dr. Balderas addressed each one of my medical issues. VERY highly recommended.
I have seen Dr Balderas about 4x now and each time I have left with a feeling of satisfaction and thankfulness. He has a great and comforting personality and a background including cardiovadcular experience, which was important to me. Im thankful to have finally found a doctor in south Austin, who is a good match for my personality and my primary care needs.
The staff was great and Dr. Balderas gave me the care I needed. Will definitely go back if the need arises.
Would highly recommend Dr. Balderas and his staff! Great Dr. and great team!
Dr. Balderas was a true professional. He listened well and the visit couldn't have been better. I have had a little problem with communication since. But overall, very pleased.
No issues whatsoever. Dr. Balderas and staff were great / friendly.
Appointment was quicker than I expected. I thought it would take over an hour to remove a lump from my arm. I was in and out in 40 minutes. Neat, clean stitches and no pain. Couldn't have been any better.
Excellent bedside manner.
Dr. Dagoberto Balderas, has exceptional bedside manners. He listens with high concern and gives the best professional advise. Scheduling appointments is very convenient and easy. I have scheduled some appointments on Saturdays. He is always there. Thank You. -Mario
It was Great, I always feel very comfortable to ask any question. He listens and also ask questions and makes sure I understand the situation, He is very encouraging.
I don't like going to the doctor so i was hoping for someone considerate, warm, intelligent and easy to understand. I got all three and more. The office personnel are welcoming and the attention to detail is spot on. The doctor sits to talk to you making you feel understood and gives you value as he asks and answers questions. I highly recommend even though if everyone goes there i might have to wait longer.
Dr. Balderas is an awesome doctor
He's an amazing dr who actually cares about his patients. He is very friendly and positive! Highly recommended.
Excellent experience. Dr. Balderes is thorough and takes time to explain what is going on.
Wonderful, caring physician who takes the time you need and works directly with you - eye to eye. You won't leave until all of your questions are answered, issues addressed. Excellent care.
Dr. Balderas is friendly, very thorough, and is always willing to answer any questions I may have. He is caring and doesn't talk down on you. His staff is also very friendly and they're usually great about trying to get me a same-day appointment when necessary. The waiting room is comfortable and I only waited 10 minutes today. It was a great experience as always and I highly recommend Dr. Balderas and his staff.
Dr. Balderas took the time to listen to me, cared about what was going on and gave me options that didn't involve shoving a bunch of pills at me. I left feeling cared for, respected, and with a good plan for my health. Dr. Balderas didn't treat me like just another appointment, didn't rush through it, and was both professional and laid-back, as did the rest of the staff there. I'm very happy I have found this doctor close to my home.
Dr. Balderas and his staff were excellent. They were patient and thorough. Their level of care was detailed and compassionate. I highly recommend him. From the front desk associate, to the nurse and phlebotomist, to the doctor, the experience was phenomenal. Usually I do not prefer visiting with doctors, but I will be returning.
Staff was very knowledgeable, great attitude. Dr. Balderas was great!
My visit was pleasant. Doctor Balderas was informed and professional. He explained everything he was doing. I will be returning for future appointments.
I made a comment to the nurse just in general conversation about a cold sore i felt coming up from a trip I had taken to Denver. She wrote it down in the notes and Dr. Balderas wrote me a prescription for it. I was just planning to buy something over the counter like usual. It was nice to know I was actually being listened to.
It's always a pleasure seeing Dr. B!! He takes time to listen to my concerns and provide appropriate referrals when needed. I highly recommend him and his staff.
I have never received a hug from a doctor before. This doctor really cares and it is really appreciated not to be just a number and a pay check to him and his practice. I am very pleased to have found Dr. Balderas and his staff is great too!
This is going to long but it needs to be. He cares about his patients and genuinely wants the best for them. In his words, "if you're not functioning to the best of your ability, the medical community has failed you to an extent." On top of providing quality care as a general practitioner he is saving and changing lives with his OBOT program. I've seen multiple OBOT docs besides him and with all of them I always felt that while they did care about me, it felt like they just saw me as an addict and just an addict. Dr. Balderas sees you as a whole person who might have some struggles. If you're struggling with addiction and want help, can't afford rehab and have no idea what to do - Dr. Balderas is a very good starting point and I don't think you'll regret the decision to see him. Same for the people who just need a new PCP. His staff is stellar as well, from the nurses to the techs to the front desk. Billing and scheduling is a breeze. The new location is beautiful and in a nice area. Full disclosure: this review is coming from a freshly "fired" patient who took Dr. Balderas's trust and help for granted too many times. And to be honest, he could have very easily decided to discontinue treatment a long time ago after multiple chances were given and failed. But because he genuinely cares, he kept me on. This time around, much to his dismay and disappointment, in response to my latest mistake he was forced to let me go. And I can't blame him. Showing the same genuine care that was displayed in the first appt over a year ago, he hugged me, told me he wish it could have worked out and wished me well. This man and his staff will help you immensely so please don't waste it like I did. I sincerely want to thank you Dr. B, Lisa, Jen, Ricky, Jordan, and anyone else who helped me during my time at LFM.
Dr Balderas is incredibly intelligent and approachable. Makes going to the doctor easy and helpful. He's the best.
Dr. Dagoberto Balderas, is a great doctor. He listens and pays close attention to what you have to say about your health. He makes me feel very comfortable and cares about my well being. His staff is also very friendly and welcoming. I recommended Dr. Dagoberto Balderas 100%. Thank you for everything!
Polite,Professional,thinking about the patient and recommending alternatives....
He is a very kind doctor. His whole office is friendly and they always get me in earlier than I am scheduled. He is very attentive and he even explains things very detailed for me so I understand and he even gives me the strong talks to like I know I need when I need them. I can tell he is very genuine and very concerned and has compassion for his patients like they are family. I truly appreciate that.
Balderas is the best doctor I've ever had. I hope my new insurance will still be through him. The nurse there is also very helpful and friendly.
Took the time to discuss a plan and truly cared about what was best for me, and what I wanted to do.
not in a rush like other doctors. very personalized feeling. great guy.
Great Doctor who really tries to listen and understand what issues you're going through before writing prescriptions. Also, he tries to help in other areas that may seem outside his specialty (i.e. helped with a couple of back adjustments when I kinked my back/neck as well). Highly recommend!
Saw me immediately as a walk-in for an eye infection. New clinic, nice staff, thorough doctor. Will be making my PCP.
All of his staff were quite friendly, polite, welcoming and professional; the gentleman at the counter doing intake, the nurse (yuri) and of course the doctor. Doctor was honest and sincere with his communication. This medical service was welcomed after years of the opposite at ARC.
Beautiful office. Friendly staff. I had to talk to 5 different people on this visit on his staff. Everyone is friendly, pleasant and helpful. Didn't go in for an issue with my knee but mentioned it. Doc checked the knee and offered to X-ray. Told him I don't have time to go to another place for an X-ray today. Didn't have to. The have a new digital X-ray machine in the office. Less than 15 min I was looking at 3 pictures of my knee on the computer in the exam room. I highly recommend Dr Balderas and his staff.
Dr. Balderas is a great DO. He listens to what you have to say and cares about how you feel as a whole. If you call with a question, someone will get you an answer.
Great experience. As a new patient I was able to get an appointment the same day I called, and my whole visit was about 45 minutes including paperwork, wait time, and meeting with the doctor.
I was under the weather and came in without an appointment. I was in the waiting room less than 30 minutes and received prompt attention once situated. Always enjoy the directness of Dr. Balderas and received the usual care I have come to expect from his team.
He listened, I have multiple issues in competition issues. He took all information in. Now we have to see what happens until I have my surgery. Good first impression.
Dr. Balderas and his staff were nice, very personable. My complaint is that I made an appointment but waited for nearly an hour to be seen, and then almost another hour before I was done with a very basic follow-up. Two patients came in after I waited for 35 minutes, and both were called back with 10 minutes of arrival, and I waited more. Why did I make an appointment thinking it would make a difference? I had to bring my children with me, and we don't use screens much, but I was thankful for the ipads because they were angels through all the waiting.
I had a wonderful experience here. The staff was helpful and polite and Doctor Balderas had a calm and kind demeanor.
Professional, friendly and knowledgeable staff, efficient front desk, and Dr Balderas is an exceptional physician. I highly recommend both Dr B and his staff.
Staff are wonderful so professional and friendly. Love the Dr balderas I finally feel iam getting the help I need.
Looked through all my records and focused on me and my specific problems without rushing through the appointment and disregarding my health issues. Felt good about the visit when I left.
This was my first visit with Dr. Dagoberto Balderas. My first impression of him is that he really cares about his patients & has an exceptional work ethic. His staff also is very friendly and efficient. I will keep him as my doctor. Thank You!
It was good. Got my questions answered and moving on to the next steps.
I have had many primary care physicians and amazingly I never got to see the same person. Dr. B is always who I see and he knows me and his staff is fabulous!! I feel comfortable talking with him and feels he will be completely honest with me which I appreciate.
Dr. Balderas is very caring and focused on you, the patient. When he is with you, you have his undivided attention, and he doesn't rush you to get on to the next patient. I always feel like I have all the time I need to discuss my health issues, and he's always looking out for my best interests and well being. Excellent Primary Care Physician. I highly recommend him!
Going to Dr. Balderas was a great experience, I think I just find the best doctor in Texas. He and his staff are very friendly. I was treated like family. The nurse is very professional and really care for patienIts. I highly recommend Dr. Balderas “I really appreciate your saturdays hours. Good for you, keep up the good work.”
The service is always wonderful each visit. Everyone I speak with is extremely respectful and understanding. Dr. Balderas is kind, wise, and listens to my concerns without any condescension. I'm very grateful to find a place like this!
I loved how friendly and organized they were. There was no long wait time which I loved.
I started going to this Dr. for my CDL Physical, however, he is very good and has taken care of me, and now he is my primary. He is nice and treats you like a person, not an Insurance check. His staff is nice and goes the extra mile to send paperwork to Ins. Even when my medication was not covered by my Ins. the staff contacted the ins. company to get it approved. These guys are nice and have a patient for life.
I appreciate the time he took with me, he actually sat down and spoke with me face to face. No computer between us,.
Dr. B is awesome and so are his staff.
Absolutely luv Dr. "B". Great office staff too! I would absolutely recommend...I could receive discount rate at other doctors in lonestar or wellmed networks but pay out of pocket for DR BALDERAS' attentiveness, understanding and sweet nature. He is truly the BEST?? PROPER HEALTHCARE is something you shouldn't have compromised values for. Not expensive by industry standards yet worth every 'extra' $ I pay.
Really takes the time to walk you through your healthcare and focuses on preventative medicine. great bedside manner
Very helpful staff. Dr. Balderas was very kind and knowledgeable.
So nice to be able to stop in on a Saturday. Thanks for the convenient hours! Great new facility and friendly, efficient staff.
Jan 20, 2017 Friday Dr Balderas is friendly, excellent communication skills and treats me like a human being.
Dr. Balderas is a great doctor. He listens to you and works with you to develop a treatment that is effective and affordable for you. His office staff is prompt and courteous, and booking appointments online is easy. He'll almost always see you earlier than expected too. Be aware the office does have a same day appointment cancellation fee though, which is understandable; it's not like they all work for free. :)
He gave me a thorough exam and answered all of my questions, even though they were many.
It is the most comfortable I have ever felt in an exam room or physician office!! Dr. Balderas is efficient, informative, and listens!! By far the best experience to date!!
No complaints whatsoever! Dr. Dagoberto Balderas was efficient, kind, and thorough. He listened to what I was saying and I never felt rushed. I would highly recommend him and this practice to anyone!
It was my first visit, I got lost and was running a little late. The staff was super nice and understanding, I still got seen quickly. The doctor was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I can say I found a new PCP doctor here in Austin! Would definitely suggest this facility :)
It was perfect. The entire team was attentive, professional, friendly, welcoming, and hardworking. Love the new facility as well
I adore Dr. B! He's absolutely wonderful!
Dr B is the best in town. No question about it. I'm the type of person who hates going to the doctor because I feel like they are just cycling through people. Dr B isn't like that at all. Actually listens and takes what you say into consideration.
Great doctor - he actually listens to you and asks great questions. Some doctors are too quick to prescribe solutions before they know what you need. Highly recommend!
Totally pleased. Personable, professional. Gave information but did not give lengthy lectures.
I had to wait just about 30 minutes to get into an office, but then things went VERY quickly. For a PCP appointment, Dr. Balderas's appointments go much faster than average. He was polite, to the point and efficient — I highly recommend him as a PCP. His office staff, from start to finish, was also very friendly.
Dr. Balderas is great!
He is a great doctor. Very professional and thourough.
Felt very welcomed and office staff ROCKED!
Not only is Dr B. an excellent doctor he gives good personal advise as a person
Dr. Balderas was very thorough and the visit was not rushed at all. After several other Dr.'s failed to figure out the root of the problem it was nice to have someone who spent the time and order the right testing to try to get the right answer.
I came to the doctor this morning for the first time since I was a kid. It's been more than a decade since my last doctor appointment. I was nervous because I'm not exactly at peak physical condition. Dr. Balderas was so nice and informative. He calmed me down, and after talking to him a while he recommended and eventually wrote a prescription, and then he gave me a hug. I had never been hugged by a doctor before, and I must say it made my day. This makes cared about his patients. He looked me right in the eye and he actually hugged me! I was blown away and very impressed. Office staff was delightful. Always polite tones of voice and no hassling or hustling. Prices were upfront and reasonable. No sneak attack fees or charges like you get at some places. I will be going back to see Dr. Balderas in a month for a follow-up, and I can hardly wait to see him and his staff again. 5 stars all around!
I am very glad I found him.
Great experience with Dr. Balderas! He was very kind, thorough, and patient. I also like his focus on holistic and preventative medicine.
All the employees there were well mannered, patient, and polite. I couldn't have asked for a better doctors visit.
Everyone was very friendly and nice which is just what you want when visiting a doctor especially for the first time.
Dr Balderas is a very kind, thorough and compassionate physician! He genuinely listens and never makes me feel rushed to finish my appointment. His new office off of 290 is such a fresh improvement: from the moment I arrived, the front office immediately welcomed me; both of Dr Balderas' assistants are very friendly, making me feel completely at ease. Every person that I had contact with made my experience a positive one!
The staff is friendly and I felt that Dr. Baleras cared. Pretty rare these days.
The entire team is accommodating, thorough, knowledgeable, respectful, efficient, and compassionate across the board. My kids, husband, and I couldn't ask for anything better in a practice. Endless thanks to Dr. Balderas and staff.
Wonderful Doctor, wonderful staff!
Love seeing Dr. B and his new office is great
Dr. Balderas and his staff are always very friendly and helpful.
Doctor listened to my problems patiently. good experience with the staff as well. Would recommend to others.
Always seems to be in a hurry. Runs tests, but doesn't tell me what or why. If I do not ask the question, there is no explanation...but he is the Dr., I do not know what questions to ask. Last visit was him going over test results, most of visit his back was to me. Had to ask about results of one test, it was the test that resulted in medication.
My two sons saw Dr. Balderas for sports physicals. We were all pleased with the office staff and the Dr. himself. Everyone was friendly and I appreciated how they all interacted with my teens.
He is very professional and makes you feel right at home. He and his staff took great care of me and I recommend anyone to visit his office to experience it themselves.
Best PCP I've ever had
Wonderful and caring physician
Best wishes to Dr B and new staff on your move to a new facility. Look forward to seeing you there next visit!
I have been a patient of Dr.Balderas for quiet some time and he has always been a Physician you can talk to and he listens and gives you his professional medical advice. I would recommend Dr. Balderas to anyone needing a family Physician. Thank you, Mr. R.Hall
Really great staff! Dr. Banderas was helpful and addressed all my concerns. Went back after my initial visit and had another great experience. Even after I heard they were moving locations and will be a little further out, I can't imagine I'll go anywhere else.
He was great! He was very personable and friendly, and he gave me lots of options regarding my treatment. He gave me his own personal advice, but told me other options as well so that I could decide for myself.
It's always a good visit with Balderas. He listens to me and just comforts anything I may need comforted. Take my word for it. Just go :)
Great visit! I set an appointment and was seen right away. He went through ALL my issues with patience and came up with good solutions going forward.
He is a good listener. Answered all my questions thoroughly. Personable, friendly yet still efficient with our time. A good experience.
Super helpful and friendly. I definitely plan on going back for all future health related appointments.
I was very happy with my overall visit.
Really great doctor. Can't say enough nice things about how him and the office
He is kind and will take time for any questions. Very professional.
Really enjoyed this doctors office and Dr. Balderas. Office was busy and full of people and everyone was super nice
My visit went great! I was able to schedule a "late" appointment due to some serious head and neck pain of been experiencing lately. I got there a little early and was even seen before my scheduled appointment time! He was able to address my concerns and I've already started feeling a difference. I'm definitely going to visit again!
FIRST TIME VISIT RECEPTIONIST RUDE
GREAT DOCTOR BUT RECEIPTIONIST RUDE LIKE IT BOTHERS THEM TO INTERRUPT THERE CONVERSATION TO SIGN IN
He has been my primary physician for 2 years and I think he is the best!!
Dr, Balderas is very professional and friendly, very easy to talk with and makes you feel comfortable on your visit each time.
As always I will recommend him to everyone ... he is by far the best doctor I have ever met ... he has always made me feel welcome and his staff are nicest ladies I have ever met .. very funny have a great sense of humor ..
Dr. Balderas was great and efficient. However, the wait time was abnormally long, and little care was given by his staff to quicken the process. I was seen 45 minutes after my appointment time, and had arrived there 10 minutes prior to my appointment having already filled out all initial forms online.
Very attentive...listened carefully, took his time, and worked with me to address my needs. Dr. Balderas also showed great knowledge and proficiency in dealing with my situation. He is relaxed and easy to connect with. Great sense of humor. Great Doctor.
He was professional and really listened to me and was quick and precise with his appointment.
Dr. Balderas was extremely considerate, personable, and concise. I came in for a mental health concern, needing to do bloodwork. He didn't flinch, or judge when I explained my situation. I truly appreciated it. In addition, the nurse was so friendly, welcoming,sweet, and assuring. The woman who took my blood did an excellent job. Painless. She was also fun to talk to!
Dr. Balderas was more concerned about eating his free lunch with drug representatives than he was about helping his patient. Why is it still legal for drug reps to buy lunch for doctors? What a disgrace! Office staff very nice and helpful.
He continued to request that I visit 2-3 more times for different services.
Receptionist doesn't verify appointment until you are in office making wait time longer. My appointment is at 930a came in early I still haven't been ask to pay my co-payment. Making me inpatient and my waiting time to seem longer
Dr Balderas was very warm and compassionate, and he knew a lot about my fairly obscure condition, which my former primary care physician had never heard of. I was impressed!
Dr. Balderas is great! Great sense of humor, very knowledgeable. Did not rush me or seem to want to go to the next patient. Will recommend him to others. His staff is AMAZING too. They are funny and charming.
I like Dr. Balderas. He is honest and provide great care with great detail. I plan to keep him as my provider of my medical care
Not the best looking facility but Dr. Balderas is kind and professional.
Dr. Balderas is kind, caring, and truly compassionate. His office isn't on my side of town, but I drive the distance to seek his care. Highly recommended.
This clinic is beyond terrible. I would not go back dur the support staff and the environmental factor.
I felt taken care of and the doctor was very nice!
Dr Balderas takes the time to get to know you personally. He is extremely patient with me and my entire family. He is always there ready to help with all of our medical needs. I would highly recommend him to any of our friends and family members.
Great doctor, friendly staff. Very professional and gave sound advice.
A lot of other reviews on here comment on the wait time being long. I showed up about 5 minutes before, spent 2 minutes filling out minimal paperwork, and was taken back 3 minutes later. The doctor saw me immediately after the nurse took my vitals and basic information. I was in and out in ~20 minutes. Everything else everyone says is true. The doctor is extremely nice and professional. He's personable and took the time to address all of my questions. I haven't had a better experience with a doctor. The place is in a strip mall and doesn't have the best furniture and fixtures but everything is extremely clean and well taken care of. I would absolutely recommend this doctor and this doctor's office.
Dr. Balderas was professional and friendly. Couldn't ask for anything more.
Incredible people skills and explained everything I needed to know very clearly. He never made me feel like he was in a hurry to leave. I would highly reccommend him.
DR. Balderas was very friendly. I wasn't sure who to go to since I just moved to Austin. He helped make some recommendations to my medical situation moving to this climate. Highly Recommended.
very nice and kind Doctor he litsen tou you everything you say I would highly recommend him.
Probably my favorite GP I've ever had. Quick and friendly.
Very down to earth and cool. Listened to everything I said. Treated me like an equal.
The whole visit was amazing he is fast friendly and effiecient. His has staff is the friendliest I have ever met at a doctors office.
I enjoyed my visit very much. The entire staff I dealt with was very friendly and accommodating. I was greeted quickly(I got there about 15 min early) and was taken back right on schedule with my appointment time. I had blood work done, so I can't say exactly how my appointment went(still waiting on results). I will definitely be back again.
We are highly favored in having him as our family doctor.
My visit was very informative.
Very professional, super comfortable environment. Quiet and relaxing, quick and helpful.
Dr. Balderas was amazing. I have had trouble finding a pcp for years now after a couple of bad service from other doctors, but he listened was very kind and actually genuinely wanted to help me. His staff is also kind, his nurse and I were laughing during my pre-check up before I saw the doctor which shows they are real people and not just the normal clinic that tries to pump out patients fast for a quick buck.
Everyone was so professional and caring. I felt really comfortable with everything, my only complain is the long wait. Other than that it's great and I recommend it.
If you're on a schedule and don't have an hour to waste, this may not be the right doctor for you. I had an appointment, was there 15 minutes early, filled out all my paperwork on Zocdoc, and I still had to wait an hour before I saw the doctor. The waiting room wasn't busy and there were only a couple of patients waiting. The doctor himself was wonderful and had a great bedside manner and patiently answered my questions. if it wasn't for the long wait time, I'd definitely go back there.
I have seen Dr. Balderas 3 times in a short timeframe. He is always very personable and knowledgeable. I've come in feeling lousy and always left in better spirits.
I very much appreciate the level of care Dr. Balderas and his team provides. They've always worked with my schedule and gotten me in quickly. They listen to your concerns and are very thorough with their examinations. I also appreciate the different testing options they have, including one for if cancer might be a potential issue down the line. I'm very happy to have finally from a GCP that I can rely on and feel comfortable around. Thank you!
He is awesome!! I will definitely be going back. He is so knowledgable and really does care about his patients.
Aside from the long wait time the visit itself was very quick and Dr. Balderas listened to all the concerns I had and provided solutions for each. My appt was at 9:45 and I didn't get called until after 11. In fairness, I asked the nurse if the wait was typical and she said no, that it was because they just came back from the holidays. I would try Dr Balderas again.
I'm not going to lie, I was a little uneasy when I went into the shopping center where the clinic is located because it is not the nicest. However the service at the clinic was the best! I arrived almost an hour early and they were able to see me within 15 minutes of arrival. Dr. Balderas was very helpful and he was able to answer any questions that I had. I will be coming back!
Staff was very nice. Doctor was very helpful. I will definitely go back.
I like that he order the lab work up that would be valuable for a person of my age. He addressed my concerns and I felt comfortable talking with him about my issues. The front office staff was very nice and professional. The tech that drew my blood, did not hurt me, and only stuck me one time. I like the fact that everything was done in one location.
This was only my second visit. I love that I don't get escorted to an exam room just to sit and wait. Both times, Dr Balderas enters the room soon after the nurse leaves. I know it's not always possible, but I like it!
I was feeling terrible and needed to get into a doctor asap so turned to ZocDoc. Dr. Balderas had the first open availability within a 20 mile radius and raving reviews so I booked with him. When first pulling up and entering the facility, I was a little weary due to the neighborhood and sketchy shopping center where his office is located. I had submitted my paperwork online and arrived about 10 minutes prior to my appt. After about an hour in the waiting room and seeing everyone pass me, I went to the front to ask what the issue was. This office per-authorizes your insurance before seeing you. Apparently Blue Cross Blue Shield wasn't answering the phones so I had to wait about an hour and a half to be seen. I will say this is my insurances fault. When I finally made it to the back, I received the most friendly and attentive service. Dr. Balderas was very thorough and even ran a last minute blood allergy test per my request. The woman who drew blood was just as amazing as the nurse who took my vitals. Great customer service goes a long way! Overall, very please with my experience.
He's a very attentive GP. I'm very please with his service and manner.
Dr. Balderas had a friendly disposition that made me feel very welcomed. I will definitely be going back!
He addressed our concerns in a positive manner.
Professional and knowledgaeble
The doctor was friendly and thorough. Facility was a little run down but not terrible. But it took forever and I had to call 3 times to get lab results back, and they forgot to call me after they arrived.
Dr. Dagoberta and Lisa along with the rest of the staff were welcoming which made me open to ask more questions and receive their knowledge. I will be going back, definitely.
He's a great doctor and is well worth the 1 hour drive to get there! He's very knowledgeable and I am much healthier as a direct result of his recommendations.
Dr. Balderas was a joy. Very knowledgable, genuinely concerned and very thorough. I appreciated that he did not keep his nose in the computer and engaged in a conversation regarding my medical history and needs in a very compassionate and professional manner. I highly recommend if you are looking for a new PCP. As mentioned in other reviews, the office is a little dated. But to find such an amazing, qualified Doctor that is not important for me.
Very kind and attentive
The area this practice was not what I expected (right next door to a rehab clinic), but the staff and Dr.Balderas were wonderful. It was an almost thirty minute wait, but that seems to be standard nowadays and the people made up for it. The receptionist let me know before I went in that part of my visit wouldn't be covered by my insurance and gave me the out of pocket price-greatly appreciated. Dr.Balderas was kind and friendly and paid attention to what I had to say; a very nice man and doctor. I've had trouble finding a primary care doctor who isn't horrible, but now I have one.
Had a good first visit with Dr. Balderas. Registering my information online ahead of visit expedited my wait once on site. The staff was friendly and helpful. Dr. Balderas was great and provided some good advice as it related to a few issues, especially some shoulder pain pointers for me moving forward. I recommend this doctor and his staff and will be continuing here with him as my primary care physician.
Fantastic, all the staff was great.
Kind and courteous, great doctor.
Friendly yet professional.
As always, Dr Balderas was professional yet very personable, knowledgeable, caring and gave me his undivided attention while in the exam room with me. His staff is always helpful and cheerful.
Dr. Balderas is an excellent doctor. He is a compassionate doctor and loves his profession.
Overall a good experience. Friendly staff in a small family practice office. Appeared to be 2 doctors with 7-8 employees. Waiting room wasn't crowded but had patients waiting when I got there and when I left. I came in for prescription refills and they were called in directly to my pharmacy - nice! The medical assistant that drew my blood, Jennifer, was able to find my good vein (only 1) the first time. Only negative - the office could use a complete "makeover" - clean, but very dated.
My visit was excellent. I have been in USA for three years, and visited different Doctors. Dagoberto is the first great Doctor who treated me and my husband well. He has patient to listen and understand you. Over all he is awesome guy, and I will recommend to all who read this review.
The staff was very polite and attentive.
Very nice and friendly!!! I would recommend Dr. Balder to my family and friends !!!
I would recommend Dr. Balderas to anyone! He is an extremely personable guy! And his staff is extremely helpful too!
Professional and friendly...
Very informative. He didn't just push me through. He educated me on some things I was concerned about. Talked to me to gather my personal history. Treated the person instead of the symptoms. That's hard to find sometimes. Also the nurse that took my blood for the tests was an absolute pro. I wish I could rate her as well, because she would get all the stars.
He's a really great guy -- efficient but still warm, and he's very easy to talk to.
Dr. Balderas is compassionate and kind. He is a great listener and is very thorough. We are so happy to know him. I cannot recommend him highly enough. His assistant, Lisa, is likewise personable and professional. We intend on bringing our whole family to him.
Very friendly. Took time to explain costs of different alternatives and made sure to address all of my concerns before leaving.
He really listened to my concerns, made appropriate changes to my medications, and didn't try to talk me into anything I didn't want or need. I really felt comfortable with him and would highly recommended him!
Great visit! Glad I found a doc that can help me.
I felt That Dr.Balderas really care about his patients. More test were done for Accuracy I was very pleased with my visit and would recommend Doctor Balderas to anyone looking for a new Doctor Melva W
He's a great doctor. I have to drive an hour to get there, but it's worth it.
Great doctor. Very at ease and very helpful.
Poor bedside manner, rushed, spent less than 5 minutes with me, 3 out of those minutes backing out to the door. Labs came back iffy, his MA was not able to answer my question about the labs and he never called me about them. Waste of time and money.
I went to Dr. Balderas for regular check. He did all the blood work required which was covered in my insurance. It was find until they called with my results and said that I need to get tests done again as there was something wrong in my results. I had to go there again and pay my copay and they got money from insurance. After the results, they said everything was normal. My husband had similar experience earlier. We just neglected it, but since when it happened with me also, we feel bad and want to switch our doctors.
Dr. Balderas is a great doctor. He is patient and communicates the options very well. The waiting time wasn't too bad, but I was about 10 minutes late for my appointment, so had a couple of people ahead of me.
Very kind does show he cares for his patients. I will recommend him . Made appt for my husband as well . Thk u so much .
Pretty standard low end patient mill, wait 45 minutes to be put in a patient room, wait 30 minutes to see Dr. who walks in spends less than 5 minutes talking writes script says come back in a week ... week later, happens again, no personal care no trying to ascertain the root of the problem just a drug pushing patient mill, seems like this is becoming the rule instead of the exception and it's sad because Dr. Balderas is a DO not an MD which should basically mean an opposite style to this kind of "1 min script" patient interaction.
He listened to what I had to say and took time to explain things to me. He seemed to care about my health and wanted to improve it.
I was very pleased with my first visit.
Dr. Balderas came in the office right away. He was very friendly, and answered all my questions. I will definitely go back again.
Excellent. Dr. Balderas is deeply knowledgeable on a wide variety of medical issues, including some uniquely esoteric issues. He is certainly among the best primary care physician we have known. He is just terrific.
Highly recommend Dr. Balderas! I was in and out and all of my questions and concerns were answered with care.
I believe that I have a good doctor and he is taking care of me and I feel very happy to see him and when I leave I feel better about myself and my health.
Excellent bedside manner, genuine concern for my well being, great listener, took care of all the details.
Dr. Balderas is an awesome doc! I will continue to see him.
Smart, modern, patient, pay attention to what I said. Easy to talk to. Modern and up to date with most recent information. And tech savvy. His staff is first rate. Mary Ellen was the nurse who met with me before the doctor and she was also patient, attentive, and extremely helpful. I have a new PCP. It has been a while since I've been with someone I like and trust.
