Review of Dr. Ball

-San Diego, CA |

If you are a new patient expect to wait 2 to 3 months to see him; this what I was told by his office.. Also if you are having issues after a knee replacement by someone else, he requires that you send him all of your x-rays and medical records so he can decide if he wants to see you. Is it just me, or does anyone else think both a the mark of a physician who doesn't understand or care about patients in pain or who need help acutely? Perhaps he doesn't need or want new patients.

Review of Dr. Afshar

-San Diego, CA |

Dr. Afshar reached out to me after my mom had a fall and he offered to help me in anyway he could, even after my mom left the facility he worked in. He clarified any miscommunication between the facility and I in a heart beat. He talked to me about my mom's care and made sure I had all the information I needed before we ended our call. He also gave me an email and phone number where he could be reached anytime.

Review of Dr. Ball

- in Vista, CA |

The best knee replacement doctor anywhere. He is extremely knowledgeable, and is highly regarded by all professionals who work with him. I found both Dr.Ball and his staff, specifically his PA James Hamilton, to be caring, compassionate, thorough, and did an excellent job on my knee replacement surgery. He is very busy, booked ahead for months, but well worth the wait if that's required.

Review of Dr. Ball

- in CA |

Dr. Ball was my second opinion. I waited 2 hours to see him. When he walked in he said ' I have a conference call in two minutes, but I'll give you a little more time than that'. He didn't even touch me to examine me. Told me unless my hip dislocated not to fix my issue and that was it. I found a doctor who diagnosed me as hyper mobile, and the pain I had was cup and stem actually hitting each other. Which he might have known if he examined me. My revision went great. No thanks to him.

Review of Dr. Ball

-San Diego, CA |

Had a hip replacement by Dr. Ball a little over a year ago and my hip turned out great. Recovery went very well and I am now free of that excruciating hip joint pain! I highly recommend Dr Ball - he is a skilled and personable surgeon who cares about his patients.

100% Yes. Doctor Ball took the time to answer all my questions and even called my house a few times to see how I was doing. I referred Doctor Ball every chance I can.
