5 Casey in Northridge, CA – May 11, 2016

Patient

Dr. Balfour has been treating my husband for several years for multiple hand problems. I find him to be honest and direct to his approach in managing orthopedic issues. His passion is hand surgery and in my books he is one of the best hand surgeons around.

I'm in my 20s and I had joint cysts in my knuckle that were causing me pain, preventing me from doing my job correctly. He treated it like a dumb request and on surgery day was late (and billed me for it), did a poor job (the finger aches now) and the sutures were lazy and eventually puckered leading to a mild infection. I now have an ugly scar because of it. I have had this surgery before with another doctor on a different knuckle and I know how easy it should have been for a qualified doctor.

Patient

Poor communication skills. I walked away with no advice on how to help my current situation, just wait for approval for next set of tests...
