Dr. Balan was extremely knowledgeable and took his time discussing treatment options, next steps, and prior results indetail. I was seen promptly upon arrival and had no wait time after completing my paperwork. They called to see if I can come in earlier which I had no problem with. The receptionist is super nice and even attempted to assist my wife in getting a personal matter settled. I felt comfortable and had a positive experience. The doctor is thorough, which I really appreciate. I definitely recommend him.

Wonderul doctor! Very kind, PATIENT, actually EXPLAINS everything to you. Called me personally to go over my results, rather than have me pay for another visit. I really recommend this doctor.

I went to a different hematologist prior to him they were nice but not informative. He took his time to address all your concerns and explained ever single thing detail by detail. Extremely nice and knowledgeable guy
