Ratings for Dr. Anand Bala
Dr Bala saw me for a colonoscopy this year. Had a very large polyp removed and he saw me after that and explained everything in detail. It was obvious that he is very respected by the hospital staff and knows what he is doing. Top marks all around!
Staff was very helpful over the phone but that is all I can really say. This is because before I could get an appointment with Dr. Bala my family doctor was told an abdominal CT scan with contrast was needed. After waiting months I had to phone his office to find out if he had looked at my CT scan results . I was told he had just seen them and a letter was sent informing my family doctor he would not see me based on the results of a CT scan that appeared normal. I've never been to doctor school but I am sure to fully I investigate a person's condition it is a good idea to physically examine and talk to the patient.
Appreciate the terrific care over the years. Agree that you should wait to see him as he is very good at what he does, even though it will be a long wait like everything in healthcare. It is clear he is very experienced with these scopes also which is a big plus.
If you have a chronic disease, make sure you see somebody who will care when it really matters. I spoke to several people who suggested this Doctor Bala and to wait to see him than see someone else quicker. My experience has been very positive at the office over the last few years. They respond to phone calls promptly and also call in prescriptions in an emergency. The medical people also say that he is the best at all the technical stuff which is good to know!
I have been seeing Dr Bala for 12 years now for my ulcerative colitis. Although my goal is to never have to see him this disease has other ideas. I think he listens well, I'm not big into drugs but have learned over the years they are a necessary evil and he has been open to me experimenting with diet, probiotics, alternative methods etc he just doesn't wAnt you putting yourself in danger. Annette his receptionist is awesome and although she is protective off his time etc is excellent at getting you in touch with him in emergency situations etc. I feel very fortunate to have him as a gastro specialist.
