My mother was recently diagnosed with cancer and is in excruciating pain. Her friend has highly recommended this doctor, so we went yesterday for an appointment. She was absolutely amazing and surprisingly had knowledge of mom's rare disease. This is the first time I have seem mother hopeful that she can have some quality of life in her last days.

This doctor has helped me get my life back. I still have chronic pain, but with Dr. Ballard’s help I can do more than just lie in bed all the time. The only downside to using this doctor are the scheduling difficulties. You have to actually COME IN PERSON to change an appointment. Doesn’t make sense when treating chronic pain patients, many of whom can’t drive themselves. ?? Overall, tho, this is a great practice! The good results definitely outweigh the 1-2 negatives!

Saw her one time, then only saw Nurse practitioner. We had trouble getting my husband's medicine, because this office did not understand how to send a PA for a drug. Took 3 weeks to get pills, never was able to get the patches approved. Cancelled appointment because it took so long to get prescription filled, then they wouldn't reschedule. Now they will not transfer his records to see new doctor. This has been very frustrating, and they are the cause of my husband being in terrible pain!

Excellent doctor! Grateful to have someone with her level of education and experience in our area. Her staff, nurses, and Nurse Practitioner are always pleasant and patient. They suggest and provide alternatives that are effective and help tremendously as well. Would give them 10 stars if I could.

I had been seeing Dr Ballard for 3 years well les put it this way I seen the Doctor 2 times out of 3 years . I ask to see her for next time I came in made app. left 2 days later I get a letter saying I had breached my contract which is a lie.I have took pain meds. for 40 years when I was 29 I broke my back anyway now I am 66 she will not tell what she thinks I did. I want everyone to know that this Dr. does not care about anyone. I can hardly walk because of pain and I really did not breach.
