I once thought this man was an excellent physician. I respected him. He gave me a clear demonstration of who he really is. Never have I thought so little of a person let alone a physician.

My OB/Gyn referred me to Dr. Ballon after results showed uterine cancer cells. I was without insurance at the time. I never felt "less than" when I met with him. Consultation was thorough. He was kind and funny. He came to my local hospital and he, along with my Ob/Gyn performed my surgery. The surgery was not easy for them but it went without any complication. I am so thankful for Dr. Ballon and Dr. Jordann Loehr. I only had one visit with him, as my own Dr. took over all follow-ups.

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.
