“Time and health are two precious assets that we don’t recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted.” – Denis Waitley

Dr. Donato Balsamo chose primary care practice because he believes it allows him to truly have a positive influence and make a difference in people’s lives. In his practice, Dr. Balsamo stresses the importance of addressing the entire body, not just a particular organ or system, and takes pride in the fact that his patients have described him as easy to talk to, attentive to detail, kind, and as being a physician who provides comfort and focuses on true health and wellness. Dr. Balsamo says his favorite part of being a doctor is the privilege and opportunity of teaching and educating his patients about their health.


In his free time, Dr. Balsamo enjoys traveling with his son, attending live music and sporting events, scuba diving, camping, and exercising. In fact, Dr. Balsamo’s favorite season is summer for all the outdoor activities that the season brings. Being an avid sports fan (primarily baseball and golf) Dr. Balsamo is proud of the fact that his father played major league baseball for the Chicago Cubs!


Dr. Balsamo is equally passionate about community service and volunteering. He includes Unsung Siblings, Angela’s House, American Cancer Society, and Long Island Cares as causes that are especially important to him.

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.

Dr. Balsamo exemplifies what it means to feel like you are his only patient. He is easy to talk to and explains things so that you can understand. He provides comfort and focuses on true health and wellness. This is personalized medicine, not the average cookie-cutter. His office and staff are professional and compassionate. Dr. Balsamo often comes to greet each patient personally, which is amazing and welcoming. He is a wonderful physician.

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.
