  • This doctor is extremely busy! However, he took adequate time with me, reviewing X-rays with me and explaining what was wrong and how it could be fixed. After a delay in scheduling (not his fault) Dr Balint performed a total reverse shoulder replacement. I couldn't be happier with the result. Dr. Balint emphasized this type of surgery was to relieve pain, but I would loose much of my range of motion. I now have NO pain in my shoulder, upper back, arm or neck. And I have regained more range of motion than I expected. I am pleased beyond words at the results.
  • Dr. Balint and Chris Ritchey have done all three of my mother's surgeries (shoulder and both knees). They are extremely good about speaking to her and explaining each process to her. They are kind and compassionate and all the surgeries went off without a hitch on their part! I appreciate the time they take to actually care about the person they are operating on and don't approach it as "another knee" without a name. The office staff from reception to x-ray are also wonderful! We were offered another surgeon who had an earlier availability and we refused and waited for Dr. Balint's schedule to open up. He is worth it!! I highly recommend him to anyone out there searching!!

    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!
