Patient Reviews ?
I was excited to meet a doctor that, for so many others seems to be well liked. I have been to others and that is not always the case. Here is what happened. I got to my appointment at 3pm (1st visit ever) and the waiting room is knee to knee full of other people. Other patients (5) who were there to see Dr. Balter were joking around with one another about how he is always late, one time they waited 3 hours 5 hours etc. Then they are laughing because he isn't even in the office! He eventually walked in through the waiting room at 4pm while shielding his face feom the crowd in the room. I waited until 5 and couldn't wait anymore as there was still 3 patients in front of me. I had to get my co-pay refunded and I have to find a more respectful Dr. I am at his mercy because I am sick so it makes you feel helpless when he can just do whatever he wants whenever he wants. I hope this helps. I will never go to Dr. Balter's office again.
Dr. Jordan is my doctor but makes me feel like we've been friends forever. I was in a deep problem and he helped lift me out. i'm in Dr. Balter's debt.. I love him.. lol
Dr Balter is easy to build a rapport with and has been a great source of guidance in my life
I have been to hundreds of dr's and this is the only one I have ever felt comfortable with (im 24 years old). Also he was able to diagnose me with ptsd insted of bi polar with was what every other dr thought i had and now i feel like a diff person. Ive already recomended 7 people to him ranging from the ages of 16-30 and every one is very very happy. We are lucky to have this Dr. in St. Louis!!!
i thought dr. balter was very attentive and very knowledgeable. he listened to what i had to say and was very respectful and the team is excellent. he wants to really help people in a healthy and responsible way.
Dr. Balter is an excellent psychiatrist. He spends the necessary time you require for the initial diagnostic interview and and concerns you may have thereafter. He looks you in the eye when conversing with you and really seems to care about your well being. The only problem is that he is always very late appointments. I have waited three hours to see him before
Dr. Balter is a great doctor who is compassionate and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him.
great doctor who isvery concerned aboutmy feelings, and the staff was very caring and courtious
Very educated and sensitive to LGBT issues. Wouldn't want any other psychiatrist!
DR. BALTER IS IS MORE THAN JUST A "PSYCHIATRIST" HE'S PROFESSIONAL YET PERSONABLE, MAKES YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE. GOOD BEDSIDE MANNER / NOT STUFFY. HES DOWN TO EARTH,HONEST,.WIL GO ABOVE AND BEYOND HIS CALL OF DUTY,MOST PSYCHIATRIST JUST DO THE MINIMAL FOR YOU AND THATS IT.DR BALTER AT LEAST CARES.YOU MIGHT HAVE TO WAIT AT TIMES FOR YOUR TURN, BUT THINK OF IT THIS WAY, HE MAY BE GIVING SOMEONE THAT EXTRA FEW MINUTES, THAT YOU MAY NEED SOMETIME.... A PATIENT JL
The best Doctor in the area. too bad the wait time is so long. I guess u just have to wait for the best!
I thinkhe actually cares about each patient and he also listening to what you have to say insteed of trying to push medication on u....
Dr. Balter is the first doctor to reduce my medications and find the right one. He changed my life!
very professional and excellent at making you feel at ease! concerned about all aspects of ones life, not just a hows it going type of visit. office wait might be longer than usual sometimes BUT to get the best treatment...its worth it!
I've been seeing Dr. Balter for a year and feel he's done a wonderful job in improving my overall health. He never seems to be in a hurry and seems very concerned about how I'm doing in all aspects of my life. I recommend him to anyone who asks who my dr. is. He has made a huge difference in my health and happiness and I look forward to our visits as he is very personable and funny.
Although the wait maybe long for some of my appointments it is well worth it. Dr. Balter is professional, caring and empathetic. I always feel welcomed by the staff and his secretaries are amazing!
Dr. Balter is without a doubt the best Psychiatrist in this area. I have seen several others and none have made me feel more at ease, shown a sincere concern for my well-being and provided professional advice and medication while making you feel more of a friend, than a patient. I see his lowest rating is "waiting time". My wait time has always been the shortest in comparison than any other Dr. in his field. I was used to showing up at least a half an hour late and still waiting over 30 more minutes with all my prior Doctors. A 15/20 minute wait is by far nothing to complain over.
highly recommend him. He very caring doctor.He has helped us greatly in the past few years that we have been with him. He is one of the few doctors that listens to what you have to say.
Dr. Balter is accurate, and attends to the needs of his patients and adjusting their medication levels.T.
I would say that my overall experience was excellent. Dr. Balter was very concerned and answered all of my questions thoroughly and did not make me feel like my myriad of questions were stupid or insignificant. I was pleased and would recommend him to anyone.
