Learn why patients love Dr. Balki. All quotes edited for length and clarity.
I first became a patient of Dr. Balki almost three years ago when an MRI revealed inflammatory activity in my SI joint. Every morning I would wake up broken… I was 40 and in tremendous physical shape. Dr. Balki was able to help me figure out what exactly was going on and… diagnosed [me] with Ankylosing Spondylitis.
I was hesitant to take the rheumatological drugs. He never pushed me or made me feel uncomfortable… When I finally started my medication, he was again very patient in answering all my questions and helped guide me through the process. Dr. Balki is fantastic, and I continue to refer friends and family to him as I know that they would be in the most capable hands.Tracy K.
I recommend Dr. E. ALL THE TIME. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable and experienced, but he is the most thorough doctor I have ever had. He remembers every tiny detail I have told him previously, usually referencing that detail at a later appointment. He asks all the right questions. To be honest, he is interested in my whole well-being and not just the issue for which I originally saw him… He is caring and kind…Betsy B.
I first visited Dr. Balki when I was 65 and was suddenly unable to climb the stairs in my house without experiencing severe stiffness and pain. Dr. Balki gave me extensive blood work and diagnosed my problem after the second visit… I am now swimming every day, riding my bike, losing weight and climbing the stairs, all pain free… He changed my life in a very positive way. Plus, he’s a really nice guy.Michael B.
Dr. Balki is a wonderful rheumatologist! Being diagnosed with any condition or disease is not only scary but filled with anxiety and a lot of questions. The caring treatment and willingness to listen meant the world to me. All doctors should take a page from his play book. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a rheumatologist.Caren G.
