I was diagnosed with a bladder fistula in October 2015. Surgery was needed immediately. Dr. Bala spent almost 2 hours with us on our first visit. She took an entire medical history from the start of my illness 4 months ago. She explained my diagnosis and the surgery procedures thoroughly and with much patience and concern. She was extremely friendly and pleasant. I felt an immediate connection. She completed my surgery on November 1st, less than a week from when she first saw me. I continued to so her every two weeks, sometimes less, until almost March due to issues with my incision healing. I felt that she was extremely thorough and always very patient and pleasant. She took as much time as was needed to always answer all my questions and to explain things to me. Her nurse Nicole was wonderful. I even felt kind of sad at my last visit as they had become such a caring part of my life and was not going to see them again...I hope!My only negative comment is that I usually had to wait at least an hour to actually see the Dr. from when my appointment was.

She is a great surgeon. Great "bedside" manner. Very modern. Just great!
