  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

One Star

She is good doctor for many, but not me. Many of my friends are seeing her. Very popular in my community she is. I got sick recently, and I saw her. Appointment to get was very easy. But, before she even saw me, she had already made up her mind what she was planning on doing. She didn't spend anytime with me. I spent more time looking for parking and her office than actual time with her. I did what she asked even though it was the same treatment that I had been doing prior to seeing her. I had told her that some of the things she recommended does not work for me in the past for this (minor) issue. I saw some other doctor later in the week and with her treatment, I started after 10 days feeling better for the first time. You have no problems, she is good. You have problems, you see another good primary care doctor who will take care of you.

LOVE DR. BALA!!!

Dr. Bala is a great doctor. I have been seeing her for 10+ years. She has seen me at my best and has treated me at my worst. I can depend on her if I need to get in ASAP as well. She is very honest and trustworthy. I have recommended other doctors and their families to her. Great doctor!!
