Dr. Ballon performed my mom's full hysterectomy. Not only did he have a horrible bedside manner, but he actually caused a fistula (small hole in bladder) during the procedure which he could not even find to fix. We needed to go to Stanford to have her bladder repaired. I would never go to him again and never recommend him.
