Dr. Balturshot saved my husband's life! He is a very kind and compassionate Doctor. He never gave up on my husband even when other Doctors didn't think my husband would even survive the brain surgery. Because of Dr Balturshot and God, my husband is a walking and talking miracle. I would most definitely recommend him to everyone.

Doc was great with everything. Took care of me very well with every thing he did. He took care of my leg pain and the burning pain. I still have a little back pain - and doctor said it will go away with time. So far everything is great. I would recommend anyone to Dr. Balturshot for back problems. Great, great help!!! Awesome Doc

We first met Dr. Balturshot when he did surgery on our daughter. We were very impressed with her procedure and overall treatment. When we had 1st consult for back surgery we were impressed again. Time between consult and surgery was 13 days. Recovery has been amazing. We would highly recommend Dr. Balturshot, his team, and Riverside Methodist Hospital.

When it comes to a Neurological Surgeon, Dr. Gregory Baultershot, in my opinion, is one of the finest surgeons that ever walked God's Little Green Acre. He is a skilled surgeon. If you want to place your faith and confidence in a physician who can be trusted to insure the very best outcome in your surgery, this is the doctor. I am a walking, talking example of the miracles he is capable of performing. He changed my life for the better and continues to be a positive advocate in good back health and care. He's that good!

Dr. Balturshot is the best of the best! I had severe scoliosis and chronic pain. He performed a lumbar fusion and now my back is straight, and I have no more pain. He has a brilliant mind, skilled surgical hands, and a kind heart.

Dr. Balturshot is a straight shooter. He helps you understand your options, risks and benefits. He is not one to rush you to surgery when conservative treatment should be tried first. When I did eventually go the surgery route I woke up pain free in the recovery room. Came recommended by other physicians and nurses.

I had a spinal fusion - rods/screws - part of the battle was the staples - once out felt better. My floor nurse for my inpatient stay was great. Dr. Balturshot is awesome. The office staff is very understanding, attentive and caring.
