About Us


I have been a patient of Dr. Balder for the last 10 months and cannot say enough good things about him and his practice. My office visits have consisted of hormone replacement therapy, threads, and Opus Plasma for acne scarring. I left each visit pleased with the positive effects of the treatment provided. He has taken the time to listen to my concerns and formulated the best plan for me. His office staff is extremely pleasant and knowledgeable as well. If you are looking for a Doctor that has patience, understanding and provides what you are actually looking for, I HIGHLY recommend Dr Balder.

Just have to say a big thank you for all that Dr. Balder and his amazing staff have done. I recently had some neck threading done and I loved the results. A couple of days after I had some minor issues. I called the office and immediately they had me come in. Dr. Balder was outstanding and made sure that I was ok with zero complications. He took amazing care of me and I am beyond grateful. Thank you Dr. Balder to you and your staff you guys are amazing.

Dr. Balder has a good bedside manner. He explains what is happening and why. He is patient, conscientious, and even keeled. Not only to his patients, but from what I can tell, to his staff as well. His prices are very reasonable. You can tell he’s providing quality for a fair price for elective type services. Definitely recommend.
