FANTASTIC

HE got me back to soccer after my surgery which I never thought would happen. The therapists in his office are awesome too. Especially Adam at their stone Oak clinic!!! I definitely recommend them.

The best!

Dr. Balldin simply is the best! He operated on my shoulder 2 years ago and then my knee this year after two separate biking injuries! I'm already back to business. I wouldn't go see anyone else!

Exceptional!!!

I'd go to this doctor for any sports injury! He fixed up my knee after I tore both my FCL and my LCL requiring reconstruction of both. He also fixed my meniscus. I'm back playing soccer now and have no limitations. Don't get me wrong the rehab was hard and long but knee is really good! No way I'm going anywhere else.

Best sports doc around

Dr Balldin is quite the magician. He fixed my torn cartilage in my shoulder after I had dislocated it at least five times. I'm now able to play sports again. I'd recommend him to anyone!
