"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."

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."

"After procrastinating making a consulting appointment for over a year due to fear of being judged I finally took the plunge and was well rewarded. The total experience from appointment to exit was friendly, professional, personal and supportive. The process was thoroughly explained to me and I was given a Dr. Balder original sketch of the gastric sleeve process that he drew while explaining what would be done and how and why it helps with weight loss. Please do not put off this life affirming surgery. I know I have a lot of work ahead but feel confident I can reach my goals with the help of the supportive staff at MIWLS."
"He is hands down the best !!! Very professional, definitely not about the money, gave me a discount. He made sure I was never in pain, wasn’t in a hurry, even called me himself, and that’s very unusual for a physician. He very compassionate and has a passion for his work. You’ll never go wrong using Dr. Balder Thank you for your services Dianne"
