Patient Comments (2)

I love dr Balk. He did carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand six years ago and did an excellent job. Today I was back in his office for severe inflammation on my left thumb area. He is so kind and so thorough. I recommend him to anyone that needs a hand and extremity specialist.

He performed surgery on a middle knuckle of my right hand in 2007----it gave me my hand back! Very thorough Doc---called after surgery to check on status. Does not hurry you and explains everything. I would rate the guy a 10 out of 10.
