“Dr. Balint of National Spine and Pain is an expert in his field and exceptional in every way! He is extremely thorough, very professional, and very experienced with every procedure that he administers at NSP! He knows instantaneously the clinical course of treatment to follow with any given medical condition. He is methodical and erudite. I have continuous, total confidence in him, and I appreciate how he has improved my quality of life dramatically. The staff at his office are great, too!

I came to the Spine and Pain Center with a lot of pain and weakness in both legs with pins and needle feeling. Dr. Balint gave me 3 injections and a huge amount of opioids. After 4 months of taking all of these, he got me hooked on this and then indicated he did not want to see me any longer. He did not even try to get me off of the opioid withdrawal with smaller doses of pain medicine or with Zubsolv or Suboxone. I had 10 days of the worst pain I believe a person could ever have.

Nurse is so rude and mean. More pain after injection than when I first came to him. Go else where

Dr. Balint & Deb Nelson have cared for me since August 2012. I have moved to Colorado and terrified of seeing a new doctor. I have so much respect for both Dr. Balint and Deb, his trustworthy PA, and it's difficult to my care over to a new doctor, especially one who is 20 years+ younger and less experienced. But, one horrific injection that I desperately need, it's truly a "one shot" deal for the new doc and if it doesn't work, I'll return to VA or pay out of pocket for his CO recommendation.

I'm a current patient of Dr. Balint. I have been seeing him for 4-5 years now with a chronic back issue (L4-L5). I travel from another state to see him because he's the only one I will trust giving epidural injections, he's that meticulous. I love his nurse, Victoria, and the Billing people are always helpful and efficient. I've been able to avoid risky back Fusion surgery by seeing him, and I'm also able to remain active. You want to avoid surgery? This man works wonders.

3 minutes of the 2.5 hours I spent at his office were spent with Virgil. 2 of those 3 minutes were spent asking the same questions his assistant had just asked, also answered in my pre-appt forms. The final minute was spent by him demonstrating that he wasn't listening & the only options he offered were in-house procedures. I spent more time interacting with his billing staff than with him and his assistant combined. Highly recommended you go elsewhere.
in Sterling, VA |
I found the staff (nurses) totally inconsiderate. Dr. Balint didn't treat me like a patient. Did not ask any follow up questions. During injection and after injection I was extremely in pain and could not stop my tears; not even once Dr. Balint or his nurse asked me if I was ok. Instead they had personal conversation while I was receiving injection. Sadly I must say this was my second visit and totally different than my first experience. I will never return to that office.
