Dr. Ballard and his staff are amazing. I have the highest regard for his practice, and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking an OBGYN. He is knowledgable and considerate. His practice style is reminiscent of days of old where doctors looked at patients as unique individuals, and not just a name on a file.

Staff is very friendly. The Doctor is inconsiderate of people’s time and doesn’t listen to his patients. I thought it was maybe a bad day but gave him three chances (Different visits) and all were the same.
