I recently started going to Dr. Balsamo and I couldn't be happier! From the first phone call all the way through the visit it was a great experience. His staff as well as nurses are friendly and I can only speak highly of DR. Balsamo himself. He made me feel like a person instead of just another client. I would highly recommend him for anyone.
Dr. Balsamo and his staff has always been cordial, polite and definitely has met my standards as a health care provider. Dr. Balsamo is very caring and an attentive Physician who always express interest with your health ailments and well being.
I can't imagine being in the medical hands of any other doctor. After being referred to him by a long time acquaintance, I am forever grateful to be his patient. Always a smile, always thorough, honest and genuinely concerned with my health and well-being. As my children age out of pediatrics, we will soon be a family of patients with Long Island Health and Wellness.
I just left his office. At the door, from start to finish it’s a great experience. The ladies at the front are always pleasant and professional. Dr Balsamo is not your run of the mill numbers doctors. You will realize very quickly he is concerned about your health and well being. He will not tell you what you want to hear, he will tell what you need hear. You never feel rushed or pushed aside. I find that this doctor is familiar with my particular situation. He knows what your dealing with medically and gives you the tools and the information to address those issues. I trust him, I would not hesitate to recommend his services.
I have to take a moment to personally thank Dr Donato and his staff for giving me the best medical care. I first went to Dr Donato in March or April of 2019, I already new I would be Pre Diabetic, since I have been for years, it runs in my family and I was hoping I was going to always remain pre. My test came back and I did become Diabetic, I wanted nothing to do with medicine and really was not listening to his advise. Everything he said was absolutely the best medical advise, I am 49 years old been working my a** off working out and eating right a lot of the times and I was gaining weight nothing was working ( Dr told me that is why your body needs help to work properly) . I did start medication and everything he told me was correct. If you are looking for a DR who spends the time to get to know you, who will not just tell you what you want to hear, a Dr who is smart, then Dr Donato is your guy! Grateful that his staff put up with me lol.

Dr. Balsamo is an excellent physician. He is very thorough and very knowledgeable. He has always provided me with a holistic approach. He has taken his time to educate and support me during every visit. Dr. Balsamo had provided me with advice and solutions, that I have never received before. His receptionist is kind and patient. There is little to no wait time for appointments. His medical assistant is a skilled professional, she obtains all needed information, is a nonjudgmental, reassuring way and draws blood quickly and painlessly. If you are looking to be treated by an actual physician, who is skilled, knowledgeable and provides great care, education and a listening ear, I highly recommend Dr. Balsamo.
