Who would like to get together and go over what each of us have ??
Important are the invoices saying you paid for retainers -appliances etc .
they have the date on them which in most cases is way before he filed bankrupcy . So if we can prove all that money went into his acct and never purchased any of those items ....
Maybe we can all meet for coffee and figure this thing out better .

Both of my daughters were one of Stuart Balaban's first patients in the mid 1970's. Now they brought their children to him and he did such a despicable thing. May his parent's turn over in their graves and his children and grandchildren be embarrassed by this shameful act.
This "Dr. Jackie" has all of his patient's records. Are reputation and practice will be down the tubes if she does not release records immediately at "no charge" to the families involved. The patient's records belong to them according to law.
Other parents in this situation should be either rolling in there graves or be a shamed of ther family.

Maybe Balaban & Dr. Jackie will see this or any of there loyal employees :
For 2 well educated people to do such a sleazy thing really baffles me !!
You have kids so upset not knowing when they can go to an orthodontist to continue their treatments . Those poor kids who have broken brackets or something wrong . You have affected so many people and so many lives and caused such misery.......how do sleep at night ?? I am sure some of these will have to get their braces off even after yrs of treatment out of no other choice & I am sure some will never get them on . Drs what a class act....and staff what a superior job you all did to fool us by going along with these 2 well known Drs .
Making those next appts and saying see you in 4 wks knowing that was not true !!!!!

YES, AGREED: DR JACKIE SHOULD NOT ONLY RELEASE THE RECORDS AT THIS POINT... SHE SHOULD HAVE HONORED THOSE 650 (OR SO) PATIENTS THAT DR BALABAN HAD. HE TURNED HIS RECORDS OVER TO HER!!! AND AS A COURTISY TO THE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES INVOLVED THAT WERE IN "HER" OFFICE FOR THE PAST FEW MONTHS SHE SHOULD HAVE SEEN THEM AND DEALT WITH THE FACT SHE HAS THE RECORDS AND GOT INVOLVED!!! WHAT A DISGUSTING DR. SHE IS!!!! MY HUSBAND IS IN THE HEALTH CARE PROFESSION AND WOULD NEVER IN HIS HEART ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN TO FAMILIES, DR JACKIE SHOULD PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL EACH PATIENT AND WORK THIS OUT BEFORE SHE IS ROYALLY SUED! KARMA IS A BAD THING!! SHE SHOULD CONTACT EVERYONE ASAP AND TRY TO ARRANGE ANOTHER CONSULT WITH OUT HER ADDITIONAL FEES AND TAKE BACK WHAT SHE TOLD US ALL WHEN WE WENT TO SPEAK WITH HER. MY LAWYER IS ON THIS CASE AND SHE TOO WILL NOT GET AWAY WITH THIS, BUT I DONT THINK SHE CARES. PARENTS POURED THEIR HEARTS OUT TO HER, SHE JUST WALKED OUT OF THE ROOM!!

Here are a few facts. Dr. Jackie strung Dr. Balaban for over a year inregards to purchasing his practise. At one point the deal was off and Dr. Balaban was looking at declaring himself bankrupt. That meant all paitients were on there own. Dr. Jakie took over the practise and promised Dr. Balaban she would not increase the costs for any of his remining clients. Dr. Balaban was then to work for Dr. Jakie. He saw both his own and Dr. Jakie's paitients at her office, check that fact out. Dr. Balaban tried to complete his obligations. If he is guilty of anything it is being a poor businessman in a bad economy and Dr. Jakie was the greedy one. Anyone see her on the Tira Banks show, nice pink suit. Finally Dr. Jakie has fired Dr. Balaban, guess her plans didn't go the way she planed.

NOT COMPLETELY TRUE DR BALABAN ONLY SAW HIS PATIENTS AT HER OFFICE ALSO HE DID LOOK INTO OTHER ORTHODONTITS TO TAKE OVER HIS PRACTICE THE FACT IS IF THE FILES AND THE PATIENTS WERE BEING SEEN IN DR JACKIES OFFICE WHETHER OR NOT SHE TOOK OVER THE PRACTICE LEGALLY THE FACT REMAINS SHE IS NOT SOLE RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES AND SHOULD ASSUME HER OATH AND RESPONSIBLILTY TO EVERYONE.

The FIRST letter we recd stated he has to move his office-NOTHING about bankruptcy back in October or November. When I called Dr. Jacquis to set up my apt I SPECIFICALLY asked if there was an issue because I had paid in FULL and was told NO he is just moving his office. I was just waiting on getting molds for my retainer to complete my invisalign and went every two weeks into dr. jacquis office and saw balaban who kept putting me off, saying to come back in and meet with Dr. Jacqui. Finally I met her (now we were at the end of January) and she tells me she needs another 1500 and 250 per office visit to complete the treatment. I explained I already paid in full and she said Dr. Balaban is renting office space and is bankrupt and all monies paid to him were gone and that she is giving me a deal to continue with my treatment at such a low price and good luck finding someone else to do it cheaper. When I cried foul and told dr. balaban I would be calling the da and standing outside the office with a sign, he offered to pay me 750 dollars cash to shut up (which I told him to shove) and then someone from DR. JACQUIS office called to tell me I shouldn't contact ANYONE that I was being vindictive and that Dr. Balaban was a good man and Dr. Jacqui BOUGHT his patient files. That is exactly what Dr. Jacquis employee told me before I hung up on her and told her I was going to seek action. Whatever action is being taken, please allow me to take part!!! Went to another ortho in East Northport who told me that anyone willing to "take in" a con artist cannot be blameless!

ALSO...just as an aside...before any of this went down I was already in talks with my insurance company because Balaban kept putting through false claims even though he had already been paid in full years earlier! TOTAL SCAM ARTIST!

I have made all my complaints the 800 #
the suffolk DA office gave me NYS da who had given me that 800 # which I DID MAKE MY COMPLAINT
but they still have to mail out a complaint form .
Also complain via email office of professions
apparently he has violations with them previously.
But yes a lawyer wants $$$ up front
but if we can go after both Drs....Jackie has what 4 or 5 practices ...besides I am sure Balaban
Yes I remember the letter in Oct stating his move
and had been going to Woodbury w/ my child since Nov at no additional charge and was usually seen by Balabans staff but a few times by Jackies .
After April 1st they would no longer see my child free of charge.
Does anyone remember or have the pennysaver page where he was welcoming Dr Jackie to his practice ??
I will be calling the pennysaver and Adventureland shortly to see if they have any copies . If they will even cooperate . Which is why we need help but I am going to try my best !!!
