Dr. Balarbar is always very personable and caring with me. She is always interested in how I am doing and makes a real effort to encourage me to take care of my health. I had been with my previous physician for more than 20 years, so it was difficult to change...but I think I struck gold with Dr. Balarbar. I never feel rushed. She always takes the time to listen to my concerns and is very caring and compassionate. The world needs more docs like her for sure.
