Dr. Ballard is great. Had bad hip pain. I called on a Thursday for an appointment and his office worked me in the next day. The treatment provided by dr. Ballard gave me almost instant relief! Mark

Dr. Ballard was awesome pre and post surgery for my hip. I would highly recommend Dr. Ballard and CSM for all orthopedic concerns. My husband and I have both used Dr. Ballard with great results.

Not only is Dr. Ballard a Top Flight Surgeon but he is A Fine, Fine Man. It has been 6 weeks since my knee replacement and I couldn't be happier with the results. Now I am actually looking forward to having the other knee done in January. Thanks Dr. Ballard and God Bless you and yours. Santa Mike Anderson

Dr.Ballard is an excellent surgeon. He has replaced both my left and right knees. He has also had to do several scar tissue scope surgery.I have referred many friends and strangers I've met that were in need of knee or hip surgery. I don't refer Doctors lightly Dr.Ballard will treat you with kindness understanding and explain just what needs to be done , walks you thru the entire process , and is there thru the healing and recovery period. His staff from the PA R.Bowman , his Nurse ect .
Thank you for taking the time to review us, Ken.

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.
Thank you for taking the time to review us, Phyllis.

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.
