Dr. Ballantyne is very prompt and wastes little time. If you have questions, you must ask them quickly and he will answer. If you do not, he will move on to the next patient. With my knee replacement, he met my wife and daughter in law and said "everything was fine and I was in recovery doing well" and began to leave. They interrupted him and he answered their questions. One must be prepared to take charge.

Saying Ballantyne is arrogant is an understatement. How about a bad attitude a bad temper and a God complex. I fired him as my doctor in my hospital room. He came stomping into my room ,red faced and ready for a fight. He accused me of going to the emergency room to force him to be my doctor. My femur was broken in two places but he told my family I was obviously there just for drugs. I went to Emory Clinic to see a real orthopedic surgeon. I can't trust any doctor willing to work with him!

Dr. Ballantyne is a good doctor, but remember, when you go in with a problem, it's like an incoming freshman talking to a full professor. So he can be abrupt. Don't mistake that for arrogance. I believe he really cares. He's good. The office staff is rather incompetent. Also saw Dr. Kessler for back problems. He is arrogant, does not listen, and was trying to walk out the door while we were trying to find out what was going on. The problem is people he is relying upon letting him down.

Horribly arrogant. I'd seen some reviews that reported this but I was encouraged by his demeanor when he entered the room so cheerful. Stupid me! He refused to allow me to ask questions by constantly assuming what I was going to ask and talking over me. Even after I pointed out that he'd not answered what I needed to know and that he'd attempted to bulldoze me he continued to tell me I didn't understand. I understand- you're a jerk.
