Dr. Gregory N Ball has the following 2 specialties
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

I was referred to Dr. Gregory Ball by my regular pain management doctor 👨⚕️ back in October of 2016. I was to have what they call in Laymans terms epidural cervical steroid injection shot in my neck. That's extremely scary for me! My pain management doctor couldn't tell me much because he didn't know much of how the procedure would go. You see, where the injection site was, I needed to be very stiff! As stiff as a board. I didn't know if I could be that still. When I got all the prep phone calls I asked them if they planned to put me to sleep 😴? To my upmost utter relief my fairy godmother on the other end of the phone said they put all their patients to sleep. Bless her (Patricia Springer)! Anyhow, when I go in for the procedure and I fill out the required paperwork they come get me (and my mother in law was my driver), the get me set up with an I.V and the anesthesiologist came to talk to me and explained what he was going to do while I was asleep. Then Dr. Ball came to see and talk to me. He's very soft spoken with a great bedside manner. I have now had 2 more procedures done and always leave feeling like I've been taken care of. Thank you for that Dr. Ball
Went for an intake appointment and was told to take a psychological profile, as a result of that Dr. Ball pegged me as an addict without proof because of previous life experiences. Just because I was molested as a child or abused as a child and went through a wild phase in my life where I drank heavily DOES NOT mean automatically mean I am or will be a drug addict. Instead of making me an addict my life experiences and advercities I've gone through have made me a much stronger person and taught me how to deal with life without getting into street drugs. Ironically what He prescribes is something that though needed more often then not leads to a different kind of drug addiction and his treatment of people would be considered abusive because of his profiling of people and making misinformed statements on your perminant record that you are not allowed to see and that he refuses to correct should you be able to see it through a legitemit doctor.
I have been a patient of Dr. Ball for 16 years. The first procedure he did on me kept me from having severe pain for over 10 years. He is a very caring person. I wish I could say the same about his office staff, particularly Faye the insurance person. When you leave messages I think she just deletes them. I have very good insurance and waited almost 2 months for her to call them to get the pre-authorization for my procedure. She said they were not calling her back, but when I called my insurance they had no record of her calling to get any authorization.
