I absolutely love this doctor. He is so devoted to his patients despite his difficult recover of back surgery. I can't begin to explain how much time he spends with you. Explains your pictures and your treatment options. Doesn't rush you once in the room. The worst part of my visit is just waiting for him but his staff make you feel welcomed n serves you coffee and cookies.
While I had to wait longer than I would have liked, Dr Balkin diagnosed me differently than others, explained to me in great length what was going on by showing me photos of the situation. I had a great results in my vision after seeing him.
