Dr. Adam D Balkany has the following 2 specialties
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Excellent Doctor--Very Bad Medical Group
Self-verified patient of Dr. Adam D Balkany - Posted on May 23rd, 2016
Dr.Balkany is an excellent Doctor. However he is working under the confines of Swedish Medical Group and that's a real problem. Swedish Medical Group has decided to discriminate against Medical Marijuana users in their Pain Management Clinics despite CDC warnings about patient abandonment. Dr. Balkany was replaced by Dr. Lee to facilitate the removal of Medical Marijuana patients since Dr. Balkany has no problem with them. but Swedish Medical Group does. Beware of this discriminatory policy instituted by Swedish in their Pain Management Clinics across the entire organization.

Best Doctor Ever
Self-verified patient of Dr. Adam D Balkany - Posted on November 1st, 2015
I have been dealing with a chronic on going abdominal pain. Dr. Balkany takes time to really get to know the patient as well as the case background. He has followed up after hours when emergencies have occurred and treats his oatients with care and respect. By far, thus is the best doctor I have ever had. I cannot reccomend him highly enough.

My son had intense abdominal pain and vomiting for five months. After numerous doctors, tests and hospitalizations, we found Dr. Schneier and Dr. Balkany who worked together to cure his pain and vomiting. Dr. Balkany even called me in the middle of the night to check on my son during a hospitalization. I am so thankful to Dr. Balkany and his staff for helping my son!
it took 3 months and I still didn't see him

I am so angry and frustrated. The first time a referral was sent, I waited a couple of weeks and called. It's under review, don't call us, we'll call you. After 4 weeks, It was oh, we never got the referral. A second referral was sent. After another month same response. Third referral was sent. My doctors office calls to confirm they received it. Its under review, its under review. I called yesterday and the woman says we don't have a referral. I don't know if its because I have dshs and he doesn't want to see dshs patients any more, but I have been treated like chopped liver.
