Specialties

Dr. Michael S Balkin has the following 2 specialties

  • Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

    An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
    Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.

  • 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.

Ronnie, medical assistant

I think that Dr. Balkin is a terrific practitioner. He is professional,thorough,caring,kind,and gentle. He follows through with your treatment and makes sure you are doing alright. Sherry, his sweet assistant, always sees to it that you are seen when you need to be.I would recommend him to everyone, provided they can pay out-of-pocket.

Two Stars

He's basically your regular endocrinologist. He told me things that every other dr. told me. Staff makes him out to be some kind of god, that he loves a challenge, will spend any amount of time with you. After an hour, he said time was up. His secretary was going to come in any second and yell at him! He didn't meet my challenge! Not worth the out of pocket money!

they guy is a genius

recommended by my primary doc - he's a doctors doctor. I call him House because he is a genius who approaches healthcare like no other doctor I have ever had. He is relentless in treating you as a whole person - not just his specialty. He spends 1-2 hours with you when you come in for the first visit and will call you at home multiple times with info/etc. He is 1 of a kind! Oh, and he is NICE!!!!!
