I thought Dr. Balotti was friendly, professional, and did a good job of offering pain-free suggestions regarding my spondylolisthesis issue.

He didn't make much eye contact and he was very matter-of-fact. He didn't explain things very well and when I left all I felt was scared and not comfortable with him at all

Do not go to this doctor if you have chronic back pain. Explains nothing, has no interest in finding what caused the pain, and is wildly disinterested during the visits. He ordered an MRI and said it was fine. Another doctor said the MRI was "unreadable" so I had to do another. Another $1000....

Didn’t listen. Seemed irritated during the extremely brief and incomplete visit.

Saw Dr. Balotti for my lower back a few months ago at Premier Orthopedics. The appointment was really helpful. Dr. Balotti explained my symptoms to me, and I got put on a treatment plan.
