Dr. Ballard was sensitive to my problem. He operated on my hip and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. I appreciate all he did to help me to walk again without a lot of pain.

Dr Ballard has done five out of my eight knee surgeries. And I wish that he had done the other three maybe I wouldn't have had to have a knee replacement at the age of 33 . but nonetheless I love the care and attention he gives. And have recommended him to several friends and family. I would even have him treat my children before I would someone else.
Thank you for taking the time to review us, Rebecca.
