My husband, daughter, and myself have all seen Dr. Ball for about 8 years. We have always had great service from her and her staff. She is always very friendly with us, and when one of us goes in for a visit she always asks about our other family members. She has done surgery on my husband 2 times and everything went quite well. We would and have recommended her to others!

I had a very bad experience with Dr. Ball. After a scope of my neck, she told me that there was an irregularity that probably was cancer. When she looked at my chart and saw that I was self pay, she wanted to know how I would pay for the treatment and neck and head cancer treatments could be as much as 300 thousand dollars. Since my appointment was for fluid in my ear, I was in shock to say the least. Her demeanor was very cold and analytical. I would never recommend her to anyone.

I will not be recommending Dr. Ball to anyone, unfortunately. My wife was in for an issue that neither of us know anything about, and it felt like pulling teeth talking to Dr. Ball. She displayed little to no empathy, we had to repeat ourselves for her, she was not reassuring, and I have no confidence in her care, because she offered no explanation as to what the underlying illness could be. She just shrugged her shoulders and kept saying, "Well that's all we can do." Very unproductive visit.

I visited this office today and was so displeased with everything about my visit. The lack of help and information that I got from Dr. Ball was very poor. I discussed my concerns of her medical assistant in the medical assistant wrote it down but Dr. Ball only touched on one issues as she was rushing me out. I had to go back in to get her to Touch bases on the other issues I was having. Overall I was very disappointed and I will not be back nor recommend her to anyone.
