Specialties

Dr. Patty Balch has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

I didn't want it to end

Dr. Balch is a most alluring woman "of a certain age." She is ample in every sense of the word and has platinum hair that simply glows in the sunlight.

For the one star review

A previous reviewer complained that Dr. Balch never touched her in the exam. As an experienced Dr., she is making assessments constantly. It may seem like she's just chatting but all of the time she's checking out a hundred different things.

The Best!!

Dr. Balch is, by far, the best Doctor I have ever been to - period!! She takes whatever time is necessary to talk to me, listens to me and makes sure that I understand everything that happens during the appointment. She is very open and honest and I appreciate her directness. I completely trust her!

Five Stars

Dr. Balch has been my doctor for at least 7 years. Her skills as family doctor are unmatched. Yet, she does not hesitate to refer to a specialist when needed. She has the best bed side manner of any doctor that I have ever had. I highly recommend her.
