Ratings for Dr. Rick Balys
Amazing - he saw me on a Saturday. Told me more in 10 mins than two previous visits to Dr Massoud. Ordered CAT scan and blood work. Listened to me. Was gentle during exam. And made me laugh when I was on verge of tears. He also told me he teaches. Looking forward to next visit. Hopefully with answers.
Had my first big health scare last year and I was very impressed Dr. Balys. He had the ball rolling quickly and had me in surgery in less than two months to remove a 2nd branchial cleft cyst in my neck. Not impressed with the wait time for final diagnosis from pathology which took another 5 months, but very happy with the care I received from Dr. Balys.
I've seem Dr. Balys twice in the past two years for different ENT issues and I concur with all of the positive comments in this Ratemd section. He is extremely genuine concise and explains his medical diagnoses in an efficient and easy to understand manner. Definitely one of the best.
It took me a long time to get into see Dr. Balys but he was well worth the wait. I have several chronic health conditions and I can say without a doubt they he is the best doctor I have ever seen. He is fast, efficient and attentive and punctual. He makes sure any questions or concerns that you may have are addressed. Well worth the wait! Would recommend!
I have been seeing Dr. Balys for about 4 years now, I have a sever case of chronic sinusitis its often debilitating. Dr. Balys has been comforting and reassuring all the times I have been over to see him. I cannot say enough wonderful things about him . I would also like to thank his assistant for the may times I have called in need she has always been caring and diligent.
Sound like a great Doctor but after suffering with sinusitis for 10 years and have had chronic sinusitis for the last 4 months,not very happy with the wait times to see this doctor,My appt.was dated 8 months from time of request.Have called twice to ask to be put on a cancellation list but no luck.
Dr. Balys is young, attentive and anxious to put your concerns to rest. He is on top of the latest trends. My experiences in California at ' The House ' Clinic are comparable to what Dr. Balys has to offer his patients. He is on cutting edge research and My experiences with him have been outstanding.
Hey everyone I must tell the world about Dr Balys. I’ve had ear problems since I was a little child and had several tubes put in, I’m an adult now and was having some sever ear problems causing me to meet Dr Balys. Dr Balys is the nicest person who is a doctor that I’ve ever encountered, he knows what he’s doing and you can so tell he cares about you. I would recommend him to everyone. He’s absolutely terrific Cliff
Rick is the best doc, bar none, that I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. I had a deviated septum, polyps and some other nasal blockage. I would dread sleeping whenever I had a cold. I asked to be on his cancellation list and got an appointment very quickly. Turns out I needed some surgery to open things back up. All went very well. A post- surgery recovery process that can be uncomfortable was vastly improved by the knowledge that Rick was always available, usually same day, for follow ups. As an aside, at least in my case I did not get the full 'nasal packing' that seems to be the root of serious post op discomfort. Rick mentioned that he once himself had nasal surgery so he knows what packing feels like and in my case anyway, avoided it. More than a year later I am 100% happy with the entire process and breathing much better again. :)
