Worst Dr!

After many complaints of pain following a multi level fusion he then fused a bulging disc in place!! I had to go to UC Davis after still being told nothing was wrong to finally find out what he did! Had to have another surgery to fix what he did to me!! He has a God complex!! Doesn't listen to you after surgery!!

The Best

Dr. Ball and his staff are some of the nicest people I have ever met...especially Shannon and the Lady who does the X-rays. Dr. Ball is one of the BEST Dr's I have ever had the pleasure in working with. He is a very nice person and really shows that he cares about his patients. When I had my neck surgery I felt very comfortable with him and his assistant. I would totally recommend him to anyone. I GIVE HIM A 10!

Excellent Doctor

I went to Dr. Ball because my primary care doctor felt that he is the best spine specialist in the area. He has an excellent reputation nationally, and teaches other surgeons on special techniques of minimally invasive fusions. He also is the best choice for artificial disk replacement. My own doctor went to Dr. Ball for his operation and is back to work full time. He is very caring and has "excellent hands" according to all the doctors and physical therapists who know he is my doctor. My surgery was done a couple months ago, and I'm doing great. He has a great office staff, too.
