The skin is really a reflection of a person’s underlying health, and there is such variety in the types of patients, conditions treated and treatment options.

One of the best Dermatologists I've experienced as a patient. Great personality, while providing meticulously thorough examination, diagnosis, treatment, care & follow-up. Very glad I was referred to her by another physician I trust.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Ballo for a 3 month follow-up skin cancer check. She was thorough in her exam and pleasant throughout. I had other minor issues she addressed well. A nurse was present during the appointment and Dr. Ballo provided information to her as needed, but didn’t overlook my presence. I have been with Dr.’s where I have been treated as the 3rd party in the room. Personally, I like to receive a short written summary of the visit (the diagnosis made, treatment plan) which was not provided and would ask for in the future.
