01/12/11 5 4 5 5 Dr Bal did my ACL reconstruction and he was awesome. I'm now a year out and running 5 days a week with very few issues. Follow his directions and don't try to rush anything before he gives you the green light. I'd recommend him highly.

07/04/11 5 3 5 5 Dr. Bal conducted ACI surgery on my right knee - a cutting edge surgery that most drs in WV have never even heard of. He is a professional and capable Dr. and I would use him again.  Respond

26/09/09 4 4 5 5 What can I say, what ever it is it isn’t enough …..He is a great DR .He knows what he is doing. I had three major surgeries in one on my right shoulder...I thought I was doing great then another issue not related to my shoulder happened. Following the other Dr.’s orders I didn’t realize I was damaging my shoulder. In rides …..Dr. Bal to again repair the damage. I’ts painful and discouraging, and frankly I’ve had enough of the shoulder issue. But if he won’t give up, neither will I...

11/09/08 5 5 5 5 I was in a bad ski accident and had to have two reconstructive surgeries one on each knee and also ankle surgery for broken bones. I love Dr. Bal! I have been his patient for 8 monthes and he is the most caring doctor I have met. He has helped me go from not walking at all, starting to walk again, and now recovering still. He is the best and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!  Respond

23/07/08 4 4 5 5 Awesome!!!I have not met a doctor like this ever! My husband had been injured at work with a bicep tendon tear at the elbow. Dr. Bal met with us for a consult and then surgery to follow in two days. Dr. Bal was very busy but made every effort to fit us into his schedule because of the serious/urgency of this type of injury. He was very polite, informative and concerned. There were even two different times that Dr. Bal himself came in and apoligized to us himself about the wait. You see he really did squeeze us in that day. Very nice, caring, professional, detail oriented doctor. The surgery went great, no problems. I would recommend anyone to Dr. Bal. He's the type of doctor that reminds you of the love and desire someone going into this field has at the beginning of their career. But yet he carries this attitude with him after numerous years in his profession. You don't find many if any doctors like this anymore. You are treated as an individual not just a number. A-#1
