Would highly recommend Dr. Baling. He's down to earth, easy to talk to and explains things so you can understand! Both my husband and I have had very successful surgeries!

Very nice person. Not very informative about how to prepare for surgery; expects patient to find own literature. Can't critique his skills as a surgeon , but wasn't really impressed with ability to diagnose post-op problems. Not very detail-oriented in explaining the rehabilitation process; always felt like I was being rushed in the post-op visits.
