Dr. Balikian is a great surgeon. I like the fact that he is a great listener and cares for his patients. I have had a couple of surgeries with him and have no regrets. I did my part after the surgery and all is well. My grandson needs surgery he broke his wrist. I am inquiring if he does pediatric ortho. That is how much I like him.

My husband almost lost his leg due to bad care and nonsterile techniques used in Dr Balikian's office after Achilles surgery. He got a terrible infection that required debrieding every couple of days. I watched his nurse open a drawer with gloved hand then hand dr gauze that went in to his wound. We insisted he be sent to the wound care center. They sent him to infectious disease. Those two places saved his leg. Balikian would have just kept cutting as the infection ran wild !

I was referred to Dr Balikian a month ago flat on my back from a pinched siatic nerve in my back. He and his nurses got me the tests I needed and kept on top of my care for me when it was very much appreciated to be cared for. Here I am one month later where I never expected back to normal. I thought at the time I was done for with the pain. They managed that part of things for me to reduce inflammation and help me heal. From a person whose never been in pain I am very grateful. I
