I think that Dr. Balkin is a terrific practitioner. He is professional,thorough,caring,kind,and gentle. He follows through with your treatment and makes sure you are doing alright. Sherry, his sweet assistant, always sees to it that you are seen when you need to be.I would recommend him to everyone, provided they can pay out-of-pocket.

He's basically your regular endocrinologist. He told me things that every other dr. told me. Staff makes him out to be some kind of god, that he loves a challenge, will spend any amount of time with you. After an hour, he said time was up. His secretary was going to come in any second and yell at him! He didn't meet my challenge! Not worth the out of pocket money!

recommended by my primary doc - he's a doctors doctor. I call him House because he is a genius who approaches healthcare like no other doctor I have ever had. He is relentless in treating you as a whole person - not just his specialty. He spends 1-2 hours with you when you come in for the first visit and will call you at home multiple times with info/etc. He is 1 of a kind! Oh, and he is NICE!!!!!
