I went to Dr. Balturshot yesterday for the first time and my experience was awful. First of all let me say that the ladies at the front desk and the nurse that took me back were very nice but the doctor on the other hand was not. When he walked into my room I could already tell he had an attitude. He told me his name and never shook my hand or anything. He sat down on the table where the sink is and asked me what I was there for and started looking at my MRI. I told him I was there for low back pain and he asked me my symptoms. He told me that my MRI didn’t look bad and that he wouldn’t recommend surgery due to my age but if I wanted it then he would do it. Then he proceeded to tell me that I could possibly get injections or just live with the pain. He wasn’t at all concerned about my pain. He interrupted me several times while I was talking. He spent maybe 10 mins with me and didn’t explain anything but told me if my leg starts hurting to come back. He is very cold and callus.

How was my experience with Dr. Balturshot? Horrible. This was not my first visit, but a follow-up from a visit 3 years prior, which was not horrible, but seemed "off", in his arrogant tone describing what he would have to do to resolve the problem. (lumbar surgery) but didn't want to do it at that point. However, It got worse, had another MRI with a new neurosurgeon indicating surgery could help me. I came back to Dr. Baluturshot for a 2nd opinion. He said what are you here for? I said I was in worse pain since my last visit with him and now have to use a walker. He then interrupted me and said I do not feel you need the surgery. He said you don't even have sciatic pain, (I do, but he didn't give me a chance to respond.) I said, "what about the severe pain and can't even stand straight? He said, "Just deal with it." Say what?? I was shocked by his cold response and condescending tone. With no advice or future plans, he walked out. I was devastated. What kind of doctor does this??

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.

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.
