I left his office in tears today. He is rude, doesn't explain anything. I asked him spefically to go over al findings on. MRI, he wanted nothing to do with that. He has horrible bed side manner, and I absolutely got no resolution at my appointment today.

Dr Ball has been patient with workers comp and has successfully performed Discetomy with fusion, after almost 3 years of waiting for an approval. Very one I came in contact at San Ramon Regional hospital had nothing but kind words as far as Dr Ball is concerned.
