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

He acted like I didn't know what I was talking about and that the doctor is the only one who knows things.
September 13, 2022
My provider was very present during my appointment and explained things in a way that I understood. He spent the time to make sure to address all of my questions/concerns.

Somewhere there was a communication error between him and my PCP about some results. I will ask my ocp

Was a bit vague when answering questions.

I was very pleased with this provider and very pleased with the Clinic getting me in, and out very fast. Very little waiting time, which was good.
August 23, 2022
A very good and caring doctor!
August 23, 2022
I appreciated how Dr. Balwanz shared information about what factors would suggest the need for further tests and what those would be. I feel more comfortable when I know what issues might come up. I really felt his style was a match for what I look for in a physician.
August 23, 2022
Both Dr & staff were very professional and cordial!

My husband also sees Bryan Heart. I always feel comfortable when I leave, knowing the staff has explained med options, procedures, etc. When we/I leave someone always reminds me that they are there for questions or problems. We have never had a bad experience.

Dr. Balwanz is great! He explains things clearly and listens well.
August 05, 2022
The Dr. was knowledgeable and concerned and listened to me. He spent time with me and was very personable. It was a great experience!

I have a long cardiac history spanning over 35 years, and this provider has reviewed my entire history before he first saw me as a patient and is aware of it every time I see him in the office.
June 14, 2022
He talked to fast and I thought I couldn't understand some of those things he was saying, and when I asked him to repeat it he got a little bit upset anyway that's it.
June 08, 2022
I'm flatter Dr. Balwanz has been an excellent, excellent communicator. Shares all the information that's necessary. Listens to my needs or concerns and speaks on follow up and everything going forward. Shows concern and would recommend him over and over again if anybody needed to see a cardiologist. Much appreciated.
May 13, 2022
Great listener and it's obvious he cares about the welfare of his patients
May 03, 2022
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.
May 02, 2022
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.
April 28, 2022
She was very kind and personable and listened to what I needed to say.
April 19, 2022
Provider was well prepared for my initial visit and had clearly taken the time to review my extensive medical history prior to seeing me.
April 15, 2022
He was very calming and explained to me about my medical condition in terms that I could grasp onto.
April 05, 2022
I was impressed with everyone on the team-their knowledge and ability to listen.
April 05, 2022
I arrived a little early and was immediately processed. Everything was completed in a timely fashion. I appreciated the answers I got to my questions. I left feeling very good about the information I received.
March 24, 2022
Explained thoroughly and listened.

It was a very positive experience. I felt the visit went very well. Know I am in good hands.

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
March 04, 2022
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.
March 04, 2022
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.
March 02, 2022
Yeah, he was very Dr. Balwanz is very nice and very informative and knew everything about me and my file and my situation. So, I would rate him high. Thanks.
February 24, 2022
Dr. Balwanz is the best! So carrying and compassionate.
February 16, 2022
Dr. Balwanz is very personable. Very interested in me. And I think wants the best for my health, and I really appreciate the guidance that is given to me. I think he's great. Thank you.
February 09, 2022
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.
February 09, 2022
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.
February 08, 2022
Doctor listens and easy to talk to. Shows concern at making sure they cover everything and ask several time if they covered everything the patient was wanting to share or what needs to be addressed.
January 10, 2022
Understands my needs and wishes
January 10, 2022
The doctor and his staff has always treated me in the highest respect. They always listen to what anybody ever has to say. He's very knowledgeable. He's very unique. And he's cooler than shit. And you know what? I would only recommend him to everybody. Goodbye.
January 10, 2022
Treated with respect, not a long wait for the doctor or other tests.
November 30, 2021
Dr. Balwanz is one of the best physicians I have ever worked with, because of his caring approach to my concerns, he listens, he is very detailed with addressing the issue and he explains the approach to the medical concern in a way that I understand
