    How was your appointment with Dr. Baler?

    Apr 10, 2017
    Dr Joseph Baler has been my doctor for a decade. I respect his knowledge. He works with me to provide the medicine I am comfortable taking. He recently began treating my nephew who has significant medical issues. Both the doctor and his staff have worked hard to treat him and form a very good relationship with him. My nephew is now able to control his pain enough to be able to work. Immeasurable value to our family.
