    I left Dr. Ballard's practice because of the way that she treated me. I went to her stating I needed help because my depression was out of control and I was told that I am not depressed just overwhelmed and that I needed to let her be the doctor instead of telling her what I need. I just wanted a referral to get me the help I needed. I am also prone to sinus infections and she told me that I didn't have one since there was no fever. She didn't even look at me just my written information.

    Talks down to you as if you are a baby. Also, not good at diagnosis, she put me through many tests and it took just telling another doctor my symptoms to get the right diagnosis and treatment.

    Dr. Ballard is one of the best physicians I have ever known. She has cared for my mother for 20+ years, and she has been my provider for 14 years. As a RN myself, I have worked with many providers, and I can't imagine having anyone other than Dr. Ballard and her amazing nurse Sheri. Dr. Ballard is wise, very thorough, patient, and truly cares about you as an individual. As an example, my previous provider ignored symptoms for 3 yrs, Dr. Ballard solved the issue in my first visit. Very thankful.

    Dr. Ballard takes a thoughtful and conservative approach to patient care and makes a conscious effort to not overuse services or medicine. She is kind and helpful, and she makes time to answer patient questions and establish a positive relationship with the patient.
