"I had fallen earlier in the year and dislocated my right shoulder. Doctor Ballantyne had X-rays made & determined that a shot of cortisone would ease the pain until healing could occur. He prescribed  a number of exercises that I should do at home & after several weeks most of the pain was gone. Many thanks to Dr. Ballantyne." – William M. 
"Very good doctor. Staff is great. Shows lots of concern. Very helpful!! My stay in hospital was so comfortable. Always checking to see if I was in pain and tried to help in any way!!" – David P. 
"Dr. Ballantyne cleaned up the bruised left big toenail and it has been doing fine since." – Robert B. 
"I had gotten to the point of barely being able to walk since my left hip hurt so bad. Then after suffering a few years with that, my other hip and back hurt bad too. I was having a horrible time just doing my regular housekeeping and grocery shopping because of the pain. I put off going to have my hip seen about because of fear of being  unable to take care of my husband mainly, while I recuperated. I am so glad I finally had this surgery. I can walk well now and the other hip no longer hurts really bad like before. I can once again make it around the grocery store without pain. After lots of X-rays by my primary care doctor Guy Arnall, he recommended I see Dr. Gruber. Then 3 months later I had a complete hip replacement at Piedmont Hospital in Newnan. I have to say it was not nearly as bad an ordeal as expected. Dr. Gruber and team who operated helped me stay calm and the surgery went well. I was allowed to get up and walk the halls the afternoon of my surgery with a walker. I decided to come home and let home health nurse show me exercises. Also my daughter came the first week each day.   A few weeks after surgery I went to  local physical therapy for 12 one hour sessions for exercise. This was very helpful. I was able to drive after 6 weeks. I wish I had of had hip replacement surgery sooner, rather than have all the suffering I did while putting it off." – Bernice B.    
"Everyone was very professional and polite, the doctor was very thorough with what was going on and with treatment options. Addressed any questions or concerns that I had." – Jonathan Y.

"I have been using this great group for 12 years. I have been operated on by Dr. Gruber 8 times from 2004 through 2015. I have had arthroscopic surgeries on both knees, knee replacements, surgeries on thumb joints and a finger joint. I also received shots in my neck with Dr. Kessler. Every interaction with office, radiological, and surgical staff has been professional, efficient, and friendly. I would recommend this group very highly for all orthopedic treatment. Excellent care and follow up. Love this group!" – Diane B. 
"I was in severe pain in my left leg due to spinal stenosis. I had undergone back surgery and a fusion 12-14 years prior. The surgeon for that surgery had inserted a stimulator to boost the healing process and it still remained in my back. Dr. Kessler did a lot of research on the stimulator and decided that it couldn't be safely removed. Amazingly to me, he made the incision in my right side and performed a very successful surgery. The pain was immediately relieved. I would highly recommend Dr. Kessler. This doctor belongs on a pedestal. Thank you again, Dr. Kessler." – Nancy C.
