What People Say About Dr. Michele Ballou, MD
Reply
I recommend Dr. Ballou to anyone that wants a doctor that will set down with you and talk you about your health problems. She also takes time to answer your questions. She doesn't rush through the exam. I have had doctors in the past that were in the room less than 5 minutes and if you had questions you better trip them in order to slow them down leaving the room. The waiting time is a little longer than I like but in the end it is worth the wait.
