  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

There's No Better Doctor on the Planet

I was extremely fortunate that my primary care physician got it into his head that he could charge a zillion dollars and switch to being a "concierge" doctor. As a result, all of the wise patients that were unwilling to fork over the extreme extra dough to stay with that doctor got shuffled over to Dr. Balboa. THANK THE LORD! My diabetes was raging out of control with my prior doctor but Dr. Balboa got it under control and set me up with specialists to monitor my blood sugar, feet and eyes. If Dr. Balboa hadn't come into my life I might very well be dead now or at the very least be hobbling around on stumps from losing my feet to my uncontrolled diabetes. Dr. Balboa is very friendly and he demonstrates that he cares a great deal about the people under his medical supervision. As many other reviewers have stated, he takes the time to ensure that he can take the very best care of his patients. I've never felt rushed by him despite his busy schedule. Simply put, Dr. Balboa is AMAZING. You won't find a better doctor!

Five Stars

Dr. Gene Balboa, MD is excellent, a truly talented physician. I feel fortunate to have found him by reading reviews on Healthgrades Website. I am over 60 years old and have seen a number of doctors. Indeed, Dr. Balboa goes above and beyond his call of duty for his patients. He is highly professional, gracious, and never hurried. He spent more time with me than any internist I had seen. He has even called me personally at home to discuss my lab test results. In addition to his calming and reassuring manner, he is extremely knowledgeable and very thorough. His caring approach above all helped greatly in correctly identifying my medical problems. I shall wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Balboa.
