Ratings for Dr. Dimitrios Balageorge
Was referred to Dr. Balageorge by Dr Gakken for a PCL Tear and Cartilage tear in left knee. Dr Balageorge was quick to review the mri results and work out a plan to correct the issue. I had been wearing a brace for months trying to heal it without surgery. He decided that surgery was needed which has been a blessing. I am not in tears when i attempt to walk anymore and no more brace. He came to see me preop to mark my leg and He laughed when I asked him to write " Dont take my leg" on it he realized it was a comment from the show House. I would recommend to anyone for knee issues he is quick and friendly and straight to the point. Even talked about what should be done (have tilted knee caps) and took into consideration my age , weight and healing time before doing anything. have injured my right knee and will be going to him again him and his staff was amazing
I had my left knee total replacement done by Dr. Belageorge in 2012. I was referred to him by my family doctor. From start to finish, I liked him very much and we got along with each other very well. Everything turned out very nicely. Highly recommended. I am now getting my right knee done by him also.
Just had my left knee done and have experience a great amount of pain due to spasm . I find when I called the office Cathy was extremely caring and helpful and referred my questions to Dr BalaGeorge who gas put me on meds to help. Here hoping . I think they are a great team
Was a horrible experience. Was very curt...when I asked questions about why I was in so much pain he couldn't answer...then six weeks later when I could still hardly walk he prescribed a brace. At eight weeks there was no difference in my walking nor my pain I asked if this was how I would be now & if I'd have to wear the brace for life he just shrugged his shoulders in an "I don't know" kinda way. He couldn't answer any of my questions. I feel my knee surgery was botched. He started blaming everything on arthritis in my knee when I had only a tiny bit of arthritis in my knee before the surgery. I dumped him and sought out other medical attention and got my knee fixed...now I am pain free. I'd never have surgery with this doc again.
I had 3 pre-op appointments with Dr. Balageorge and found him to be very curt and not always punctual. If he felt the few questions I got to ask him were worth answering he answered them abruptly but for the most I could have the questions written out and he would not allow me to ask them. I found him to be rushed, cold, and heartless. I would not recommend him as a surgeon to anyone as the unprofessional behavior that he demonstrated left me canceling my knee surgery with him.
Dr.Balageorge operated on my knee last week and it went great! He is very friendly and speaks to you in a respectful way. He is excellent at explaining treatments and procedures and takes the time to be sure the patient has had any questions answered thoroughly. If I ever needed orthopedic medicine again I would want to be referred to him again!
