My Approach to Care

I am from Omaha, Neb., and specialize in cardiac imaging. I believe that a team approach in which the patient is comfortable and confident in their care leads to the best outcomes. This involves high-tech procedures and imaging as well as listening to the patient’s concerns and giving them all our attention to provide them the best quality care possible.

Patient Reviews

This provider thinks it's okay to medically gaslight young patients that have a complex medical history. Young people get sick too, get over it.

The gal at the front desk at the main floor of the hospital entrance was snippy. Everyone on the 6th floor office was nice and helpful.

Dr Balwanz is a caring compassionate physician who is well prepared for your visit, having reviewed your chart the night before. He never rushes through the apt and takes time to answer all of your questions in an easy to understand manner. We recommend him to all our friends

I thought she did a great job of explaining what was going on. Drew me a picture and was very caring and understanding, excellent. Expectations were all met.

He was very good. Although, I was concerned that he said, he wouldn't take my blood work because I had already eaten breakfast and then he turned up and did my blood work with no explanation as to why since I'd already eaten. And also, he discounted that my medications give me side effects. He said that they don't give side effects and in my case I do get side effects for medications. Other than that. He was really great. Thank you.

I still have unanswered questions that I would like to ask Dr. Balwanz about my cardio pulmonary function, and we just need a few more minutes together next time, and I will be scheduling another appointment with him to get my questions answered. Thank you very much.

My visit yesterday with Dr Balwanz was only the third time I have seen him so I am still learning to know him, but he is so personable and approachable, my husband (who sat in on my appt) really appreciated him also, it was a good experience! He is conversant and approachable.

Just because my heart looked good three years ago does not mean it is still good. Things change with a drop of the hat
