    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.

I saw Dr. Balk for treatment of what turned out to be a rare congenital heart defect. Dr. Balk displayed a great deal of knowledge during my initial visit and showed concern for my general well being by scheduling 2 diagnostic procedures on the same day to get to a definitive diagnosis as soon as possible. My issue ultimately led to surgery. Dr. Balk recommended a heart surgeon that my own independent investigation confirmed was the very best choice that he could have made. The surgeon later was very complimentary of Dr. Balk's work, saying that the thoroughness of Dr. Balk's diagnostic work saved me the cost and inconvenience of further diagnostic work by the surgeon prior to surgery. Dr. Balk came highly recommended to me and I highly recommend him to others needing a cardiologist.
