Dr. Ballas did not feel I was diagnosed correctly and thoroughly evaluated me and I now have a correct diagnosis and meds that are working really well for once. I highly recommend him! Very caring, attentive and thorough.

Doctor does not believe in appropriate treatment for children with Autism and PDD. Avoid this doctor at all costs. Would not visit again!

Unfortunately, my child had to experience unscheduled care with Dr Ballas during a difficult time. Once released from his care, within 24 hrs, my child had a reaction to the medication Dr Ballas had prescribed and ended up in the emergency room. We tried to reach him to get help with next steps but he did not bother to call us back despite repeated attempts. Extremely disappointing quality of care.
