About Me

Care Philosophy

I appreciate being able to sit down and talk with patients and get to know them and their families. I feel I am accountable for their care in doing the best I can for them, but I also ask them to be accountable in return for their care too. Whether its prevention or handling an acute problem, that trust between the patient and me is paramount.

Dr Ballard was great! He listens and addresses your concerns. He put in a couple of specialist referrals for me and I could not be happier with those doctors as well. I highly recommend him.
