We were very satisfied with Dr. Balin. Only had to go through in vitro one time and were successful right away. Had beautiful, healthy twin boys. We found his staff very responsive during treatment where a lot of phone calls were necessary to coordinate medication and ultrasounds. Never had to spend too much time waiting at the office.We would definitely recommend Dr. Balin.
Horrible Doctor. The Dr. and his Assistant are rude and unprofessional.They know they are not being guided by the same standards as other professional physicians since Infertility treatments are Not Regulated by the Government there No Satndards and Dr. Balin has No Low very Satndards. Stay Away. This guy is out for the Money fast and does not care.\
where do I start; first of all, I waited more than an hour to be seen at each and every appt. I was giving an HSG to find out if my tube was open and it was the most painful experience of my life. I was never offered anything for the pain. Forgot to mention, I've had this procedure done before and was not painful at all. Dr. Balin doesn't listen, he's very unprofessional, his nurse never returns calls. He was very cold-hearted in his reaction to my situation and made me feel there was absolutely no hope for me. This information was giving to my husband and I a day before new years eve, so you could imagine how we celebrated. I would recommend all woman to stay far away from this doctor. Even if ther is bad news in the end, you wouldn't wanna be told by this doctor!!
I am a loyal patient of Dr. Balin. I had been a patient of several RE doctor's throughout my journey with IVF when I was referred to Dr. Balin. My history was rather extensive and Dr. Balin bothered to look through everything. He read in between the lines and had a lot of questions. A previous doctor wanted to remove my tubes due to blockage and he performed a test not one, but twice to show me that they were not and they did not need removal. He is no Dr. Hollywood, and he is a no nonsense kind of doctor. He doesn't give you any false hopes (unlike other doctor's promising you that you WILL get pregnant .. when they don't know that). Well ... on my 2nd cycle with Dr. Balin we were successful. I am now the proud parent of a 5 year old ... and if I have a boy his name will be Martin in his honor. He was able to also freeze 4 wonderful embryos. I really don't agree with a lot of the reviews. He is a little on the late side, but he has a very harsh schedule. He is a teacher, an OB/GYN, and and RE. My husband and I love him ... and we are some of the most difficult people to please.
