Patient Reviews ?
Absolutely the best Doctor and FRIEND A person could ever have. I love this man. He didn't care if you were rich or poor. He was friends with everyone he met. He was a wonderful husband and father. I love you Bala.
I was in an auto accident in 2007, Dr. Bala helped save my leg. I went to see him about where the knee surgeon should cut in order to do the knee replacement I needed. He wanted to be in the operating room, that was in 2008. I went to consult with another knee surgeon and ended up needing my femur reconstructed. Since then I have had many surgeries and I am finally ready to get the knee replacement I need. Well, my amazing foot and ankle surgeon got in touch with Dr. Bala and he took me into his schedule. Well, last week I got a call that Dr. Bala had a heart attack and that I would get a call to reschedule when Dr. Bala was seeing patients again. Well, this morning I got the dreaded email that there has been yet another very sad loss to the DMC staff. RIP, Dr. Bala.
I have been bringing my children to Children's Hospital for different reasons. Dr Bala probably the most compassionate doctor for my children He is the most comment one I have seen for hand injuries and treats your child as if it is his nephew or niece
Cut my hand and was seen in the emergency room followed by a clinic visit. I was scheduled for surgery three times and due to different reasons, transportation, money, court date, did not show up. Went back to see Dr Bala who still was happy to do the tendon graft almost two months after injury. When I went to the hospital, the nurses were so nice and told me that they would only have their surgery done by this doctor. He was good and I have full function
Dr Bala has treated me, my family and friends at the Receiving Hospital for Burns, Hand injury and Gun Shots. I even changed my life and got a degree from community college. When he left the Receiving and was at the veterans, I called there last month to see if he can see my son to make sure the other doctor was doing the right thing. He told me he could not see him until he has his paper work through which was heart breaking. My son was I think the first when he has his paper work through. His advise is so comforting.
I have been working in the same hospital where dr Bala operates. He always have a gang with him -students, residents and fellows. They all think highly of him as he is an excellent teacher, surgeon and person. Whoever works in his room considers them lucky. We all love him as he talks us like one of us. At the VA hospital they all like him and even gives away his vacation time to other staff.
He fixed my tendons, bone and nerves following a saw injury. The hand is almost as good as it was.No wonder everyone loves him!
Saving my leg following a motor cycle crash made Dr Bala my hero. I did not think it is possible and Dr Olephant told me if anyone can do magic that is Dr Bala. He is so sure of what he can do and explains his plans. If I win a lotto, I will give him half.Michael Johnson
Excellent surgeon, Caring and looks after you all the time even when he is on vacation
My parents gave me life, but you sir, with your knowledge and skill gave me my life back! Had the procedure failed, I was going to call it a life time. So you can see, that words fall far short of stating the depth of my gratitude.Sincerely Timothy P Reardon
Very considerate and compassionate physician who deserves credit.Family man who takes care of the kids like his own. Very taleneted and excellent clinical skills. His daughter was the best medical student at the hosptial. Her talents came from her dad.
Very compassionate and caring. Has a good team and staff Tiffany griffin
Our child has a rare skin condition with deformity. We have seen doctors in Ann arbor, Maryland and Boston. He has no function along with other problems.Only doctor so far was compassionate and willing to help him is Dr Bala. God Bless him and his family
My father was under care of Dr Bala for his leg injury and has done well with a flap reconstruction. My father has always been so difficult to get along and never likes anyone. But after his surgery with Dr Bala, he has changed and always talks about him as the best individual he has ever met. We all think that Dr Bala is the most compassionate doctor our family has ever seen
I have a patient of Dr BALA twice now, one for my compound leg fracture and now for gun shot wound to hand. This doctor is Good and he can fix you good. He remembers you and tells you things you told him five years ago.
An excellent affectionate physician. Looks after you as he will take care of his child, parent or sibling
Excellent surgeon - a pleasure to work with. Most of the staff are his patient due his competence
Sitting in the waiting room at the Detroit VA on Mondays waiting to be seen in the Hand and Plastic Surgery clinic gives an insight of the popularity of Dr Bala. He takes care of you as though he is your brother/sister or father/uncle.He is an asset to the Detroit VA. No wonder there are too many patients in his clinc.
He is the busiest surgeon I know off. His patients love him and think highly off him. The Orthopedic surgeons consider him as the best in town for soft tissue coverage
When I got shot and cannot move the wrist, I went to a neurosurgeon who told me I had a nerve injury. He asked me to see Dr Bala. Dr Bala told me that I could get good function by tendon transfer. He even said that that this would be what he will advice his family member. My father and I was not sure and decided to talk to mother although He was willing to operate on me. Being a undergrad student, We discussed at home and decided to get a second openion who told us to wait for 6 months. I went back to Dr Bala after almost a year from injury, who said the same thing 'verbatum' from my last appointment. I had the surgery the week after and at 4 weeks I can use my hand with a shorter splint.I wish I had it done in 2009
From the time I called DR Bala's office to my last appointment, it has been a perfect experience. His nurse, Ceclia is a sweetheart. She made my procedure so easy and my wife was surprised about me - she thought I will be angry with everyone.
Excellent microsurgeon and the best kept secret at Detroit Medical Center. Very compassionate, puts his patient above his family
Treats patients like family. Compassionate, excellent teacher to residents and staff. His clinics are always busy due to his competence and patient care skills
Being in Friends and family for DMC cut my wait time to see this exceptionally talented physicina - microsurgeon. Very honest, compassionate physician who has the skills beyond discription. He is probably a best kept secret at DMC
If you ever cut your finger off look for Dr Bala - If anyone can put it back on this is your doctor.A circular saw cut my fingers off and had no insurence - I can use my hand and I have a job. I quit smoking too.
