She’s in charge and you feel calmer. If you want to understand why Dr. Balsera is different, start there. There’s a commercial for Cancer Treatment Centers of America where all of a patient’s docs are sitting around a conference table discussing their case. If you’re dealing with serious health issues, this would be a dream come true. My husband has 10 docs. For the most part, they don’t talk to each other. Dr. Balsera is a one-woman conference table. She puts it all together for you.
