"Joanne Balint is an exceptional therapist. I worked with her on vestibular therapy. She was able to restore my balance with exercises during PT and printouts to to take home. She networked with other professionals in my recovery from a concussion."
"Dr. Balint is very knowledgable and she related well with my daughter. She took the time to explain things on her level and I appreciated her kindness and patience."
"I could not have been taken care of any better. I was actually sorry when I "graduated." Dr. Balint was informative, caring, and professional- yet friendly. She made me want to do my at home exercises to always please her for her care. My graddaughter is now a patient."
