Patient Comments (1)

I was a patient of Dr. Ballen at Mass General Hospital from December of 2012 until she transferred to the University of Virginia. Dr. Ballen performed a miracle with me and because of her I am still going strong going on my 5th year. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
