I came in to talk about my hair loss and as an added bonus, she removed the corn on the bottom of my foot that was causing me excruciating pain-I was so elated!!!!! I have male pattern baldness, but I can walk!!!!!!!

The ease of "making" an appointment was "excellent." However, the ease of "getting" an appointment was "poor". It took almost seven (7) months to get on the Doctor's appointment calendar.

Waiting for response from Dr. Ballo regarding prescribed medication and whether she had checked my chart before prescribing it since one of the possible side effects is an issue with the kidneys and I only have one that I need to protect. Not sure if it is safe for me to take it. I hope it was not a waste of my money picking this script up.
