He is the worst surgeon ever! He broke my maxillary tuberosity bone gave me temporal mandibular joint disorder and hamular bursitis. I spend every second of everyday in extreme pain all because he sucks at his job. I wouldn't wish any of these problems on my worst enemy. It's been over a year and I still hurt more than before i had my wisdom teeth removed. Forrest if you're reading this know karma is coming for you and it's gonna seriously mess you up! So please for your sake use someone else.

I had to have oral surgery, and Dr. Bale was very kind and courteous. I had no pain during or after. He was very fast! I would recommend him to anyone! Thanks to Dr. Kitchens for recommending him! Keep up the good work Dr. Bale!

Dr. Bale is confident and competent without being overbearing and pushy. Before any course of action was taken, he provided me with information on the possibilities. I would definitely go back.

Dr.Bale & team completed 2 successful jaw surgeries on me, '09&'10.They do an amazing job of creating a comfortable environment where you feel safe even while dealing with severe pain.The work is nearly unrecognizable symetricly.Even with a metal plate the size of a 3 inch pencil in my cheek and 2 smaller plates in the front, he was able to complete both surgeries with only 2 tiny pin point external incisions, for tightening screws, that disappeared completely in 4 months. ThankYouAllBretBullard

He gets frustrated easily. When a patient tells you it hurts don't through your mask down and state , I can't get it any numer. I'll have to re schedule. He let me go from Thursday to Monday in pain . He could have ask how I wanted to do the procedure . I will never ever go to him again and I will never recommend him to anyone . He has no empathy at all . It's all about the money because that's what he spent the most time on what it would cost and if I could pay not on my comfort .
Please know that patient satisfaction and quality of care are our utmost priorities. If you would please phone our office to further discuss your situation, we can address your concerns directly to make sure that your experience is not repeated in the future.
