About Dr Baloch's clinical approach:
"I work with adults, 18 years of age and up. I feel very strongly about is a personalized approach to care. My approach tends to be more collaborative, allowing patients to help guide their treatment. I ask my patients a lot of questions to try and understand as much as I can about their individual situation. Each treatment needs to be molded for the individual, it’s not a cookie cutter treatment plan. I also strongly believe that not all patients require medication. Depending on the situation, therapy alone is more appropriate than medication and I will recommend that wholeheartedly. Often, medication is warranted and for those cases, I will spend the time going over side effects, interactions, and alternative options, so that patients can feel comfortable with the treatment plan."
