I took my dad to see Dr Boiskin and he was amazing! We went to the other location in Poway, the staff were super friendly, and he was an exceptional doctor. He really took his time and was very thorough, I loved that he explained his thought process in determining the medical issue. Highly recommended.
I had the most successful Kidney Transplant in 1981. To this day, I’m grateful and thankful for Dr. Steinberg’s care. He’s made such an impact on me and my family’s life. The Balboa Nephrology Medical Group of doctors stands to give HOPE to all those afflicted with kidney disease – a group dedicated to the wellness of patients who give their utmost care that patients deserve. After Dr. Steinberg retired, my new nephrologist with whom I am very happy, is Dr. Guy Lund. My everlasting thanks and love!
Dr. Berenji and Dr. Hussain are absolutely exceptional nephrologists in Southern California. They provide excellent and high quality care to their patients in Imperial County. I had the pleasure and honor of working with them for many years as an acute dialysis nurse. By far one of the best years of my nursing career. Thank you BNMG for your continued work in this community!
Dr. Barager had been my Nephrologist for 23 years before I moved from California. I stayed with him for so long because of his compassion and his availability. Whenever I went into the office he would greet everyone with a smile and spend time with each person. When it comes to one’s health, it is important for a person to feel they are being heard and this is how Dr. Barager was and likely still is.
I have seen Dr, Torosian 2X, with additional visits scheduled. The Dr. displays a genuine care for my welfare, and I feel I am in the best hands possible. On the first visit, he made the effort to get to know me, and dug deep into the issues of concern to me. His staff are very personable and helpful. I look forward to my next visit.
First time patient. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Cristina and Michelle are wonderful. The physicians are quite knowledgeable and explain everything in great detail. place is extremely clean, and they have cool Halloween decorations. The girls really make you feel comfortable. receptionist is very sweet and efficient.
Dr. Patel is the only doctor my husband saw who took his complaints seriously and worked to get to the bottom of his medical issue, possibly saving his life. Dr Patel is professional, patient, thorough, and intent on truly helping his patients rather than going through the motions. My husband is blessed to be a patient of Dr. Patel’s and we are very grateful for his care.
Dr Jill Meyers has been caring for my mom for years. She is amazing, caring, joyful and excellent. I credit her with saving my mom’s life…a couple days after labs Dr Meyers called me to get mom to the ER immediately. We found out she was bleeding internally, and the source was colon cancer. She had surgery and has recovered. The bleed would have killed her before the cancer. Thank you, Dr Meyers, for your attention to details.
We saw Dr Sajeet Sawhney for the first time today and he really impressed me in the encouraging and friendly way he communicated with us. He came over to my husband’s dialysis center to meet us. He was very thorough in his initial assessment. He called my husband his “Poster Child”. Your humor is really appreciated Dr Sawhney! Thank your kindness.
Excellent Dr., (Dr. Sandeep Dang) great bedside manner, organized, efficient and explains course of action and reasons. Lucky to have been placed in his care at Hoag Hospital.
