Ratings for Dr. Robert A. Ball
This guy is amazing. Pulled me out of a difficult situation that another Dr. had got me into.
Checked me for repeated bladder infections. Told me how to treat it and that the patient only has to take antibiotics for 3 days not 10. Husband has prostate cancer and was given a thorough discussion of the treatment, the workings of the male organs, etc. Very knowledgable and personable Doctor. You have to wait a bit in the office but it is well worth it.
Rude, incompetent and careless. I had a procedure for frequent urination. The syntoms got worse after Ball's Green Light Laser procedure. After serveral visits (all follow up charged for of course) he told me to ask for a second opinion. This kind of doctor can only practice because the country has fewer MD's than it needs. We need more doctors so the competition will weed out people like Ball.
Dr. Ball has been my urologist for more than 12 years. Apart from being friendly and engaging he is also one of the best doctors I have seen. He discovered my bladder cancer about 5 years ago and was very aggressive in treating it. I have been to his office more than 50 times for checkups and cancer treatments. I have also undergone surgery for both the bladder and recently for my prostate. I feel lucky that Dr Ball is my doctor. Many patients complain that the office backs up. What they don't realize is that there are a lot of emergencies that the doctors and nurses have to handle. Be patient. If you want the best, you sometimes have to wait.
He is just great ! Has wonderful bedside manner with great personailty. Always will return phone calls. He preformed surgery on me at INOVA Fairfax Hospital and all the nurses there reccomend him highly. He is very up to date on new Urologic Surguries He is just great !
