Dr. Balourdas demonstrated sincere concern and interest in my condition and referred me to an excellent physiotherapist. I also found his location and reception area very pleasant.

I've been a patient of Dr. Balourdas since 2009 and wouldn't go anywhere else for my hand or arm care. He's cared for my carpal tunnel and elbow issues better than anyone ever could. A #1 doctor.

It is comforting when a doctor, such at Dr. Balourdas, allows the time to discuss (in depth) the questions a patient asks.
