Excellent, compassionate, friendly physician, Takes his time with you, you are not a number. I will continue going to him even though my insurance will not cover his practice, he is that good. Diagnosed my husband's undiagnosed condition on first visit, no physician over previous 3 years even checked for Vitamin D deficiency.

Dr. Ballou is always considerate and attentive but efficient. He is well-read and stays abreast of current practice patterns so he is able to speak to what is best practice for the issue at hand. He is an excellent teacher and advocate for his patients.
