Dr. Ballard was very thorough in explaining everything, he listens to you and has a good sense of humor which makes it easier! I would recommend him to anyone.

I've seen Dr. Ballard twice now (once for each knee). The first time was the result of a fall. I had an MRI, which was followed by several months of physical therapy. The second time was for another injury. This time, Dr. Ballard tried a cortisone injection first instead of going directly to the MRI and I'm glad he did. My knee felt better immediately! I did feel a bit rushed and would have liked to ask more questions about how to treat my aging joints but I would recommend Dr. Ballard.

I am a nurse and I've worked with a lot of great doctors. This gentleman never saw me after surgery and so I discharged without talking to him. I never saw him after surgery and he never ordered me physical therapy. It took the Tommy, PA almost an hour to find my post-op imaging to know what exactly the doctor did. He never called and to this day I don't believe he fixed my knee. It's worse then it was before. I am currently looking for another orthopedic surgeon to take a look at it.

If I could give a negative number I would. This dr injured me during examine. Interrupted me after asking me questions about my accident and lied on his paper work. This dr is not trustworthy, unintelligent, and bias to the workers comp insurer SAIF. I would NEVER recommend this dr to anyone, not even my worst enemy.
