Wonderful, kind doctor! Can't say enough good things about her. I went in for a birth control consultation and she had me do blood-work to see what was wrong. When the results came back with an unfavorable outcome, she took the time to explain things to me slowly and she answered any questions I had in a very calming manner. She explained all the options I had and what types of birth control I could use to help my situation, along with all the pros and cons. She was very thorough! Even with the unfavorable news, she helped reassure me that I would be alright! I'm glad I found her! My appointment with her was quite informative and eye-opening! She makes sure to give her patients all the information they could possibly need to make well-informed decisions!

It was just OK, it felt rushed despite me being on time for my appointment. Did not get to ask her half the questions I had regarding my pregnancy because she was already halfway out the door after taking belly measurements and vitals. I am paying for this service through private insurance and I expected much better. Improve bedside manner, help patients feel like you have read their charts and are knowledgeable in their profile. It your JOB. Other than that, she is nice but nice is not enough to build rapport and make patients feel informed and well taken care of.

I had an appointment with Dr Erika previously as well. That time, visit was good but this time Dr was in little hurry. That's what I felt. We were asking questions and she replied quickly and went. We had couple of other concerns but due to her hurry, we completely forgot some of the things and had to leave.

Erika Balassiano is great!! I love her attitude. Super friendly and always with a smile. She is always clear and detailed and always explains everything (first baby so I need lots of explanation). Overall, her service and staff are great. The one negative point that I do have is the wait time. First appointment, I was seen after a 30 minute wait time. The second appointment was 1 hour late. Although I do understand that the second appointment had special circumstances, it would be common decency to inform the waiting patient. An hour passed until I found out and only because I was getting frustrated and impatient and I finally asked the assistant. Service is great but wait time needs to improve.

Dr. Balassiano was great. During our ultrasound, she walked through everything that she was doing and looking at as it happened. The educational materials she covered toward the end of the visit were very thorough and addressed any practical questions we had. Overall, my husband and I feel like we had a very comprehensive visit, and left happy with the time and level of attention we received.

Great! I've never had to wait long to be seen and my visits are always quick. Erika is great at what she does. She's very informative and considerate to your feelings and preference. She is an overall sweet and gentle person. She successfully delivered my baby via C-section and stitched me back up in a way where I can still have a baby vaginally the next time around. Amazing! I would highly recommend her. You won't be disappointed! ??

There was a mix-up in the way that my visit was scheduled so, unfortunately, that set up a more negative tone in the beginning. The doctor did take care of that & made the necessary time to do everything that was done so I appreciated that. However, I didn't feel that she really listened to me - rather, she had more of a cookie cutter approach. I did make sure that I shared what I felt needed to be shared but I felt that it was up to me (rather than being asked the more probing questions). I was also surprised that the intake form didn't have anything related to menopause (even something as simple as date of last period) nor did it ask for more detailed information about my cancer (and the doctor didn't ask me about that until I offered it up - almost as if the form hadn't been read).

She took the time to speak with me before we even began the examination process and made me feel so comfortable. Then when I explained I did not have a general practitioner at the moment, she made sure to do a full physical as well. I couldn't be happier with her service!

My Husband an I Love Erika! Not only because she is from Brazil, like myself but because She is very nice, attentive and professional! We were trying to conceive for 3 years, saw quite a few specialists in fertility, which all they wanted to do is IVF, hormone treatments or IUIs. When I talked to Erika, she suggested to do a Laparoscopy, to check my Uterus, ovaries and tubes. She found mild endometriosis, cysts and a polyp, which she treated all right on the spot. 2 months later we conceived and now I am on the second trimester of a baby boy! Her office is clean and the staff is awesome! We don't even mind to drive 45 min to see her!
