Have you seen Dr. Naveen Ballem?
October 2nd, 2017Deceptive
First off, he has not been in practice for 17 years and does not have 17 years of experience in Weight Loss Surgery! Secondly, he has not done as many weight loss operations as he claims he has. So, when I had a complication and he seemed flustered as to what to do, I was surprised. His response to me, that it's a known complication, wasn't what I was looking for. He's been distant and cold ever since, so I'm going to another surgeon now. I would not recommend him.

I received bariatric surgery about 2 years ago with Dr. Ballem. During my visit he was extremely professional and attentive. He was able to answer all my questions and advise me which bariatric procedure was the best for me. Dr. Ballem's office staff was also very kind and helpful, they were able to assist me with insurance and all other documents that were needed. I had surgery at Clara Maass Hospital and was very pleased with the nursing staff. They were able to contact Dr. Ballem anytime I had a question or concern. I was able to loose 100lbs within one year of my surgery date and could not thank Dr. Ballem enough. His bedside manner and his compassion make him an excellent surgeon and I could not thank him enough for changing my life.
June 10th, 2017Excellent surgeon with impeccable bedside manner.
I was morbidly obese and went to a plastic surgeon for a tummy tuck consultation.The plastic surgeon stated that I was not a good candidate for plastic surgery and referred me to Dr. Ballem. He stated that Dr. Ballem was the Chief of Bariatric Surgery at Clara Maass Medical Center, and he had sent many patients to him over the course of the last 5 years with excellent results. After my initial consultation with Dr. Ballem I knew that he was the surgeon for me. He used a special ROBOT to perform my surgery, and the entire process was seamless. To date I have lost 146 lbs. Thank you Dr. Ballem!!!!!
