Felt very comfortable with the staff and Dr. Ballo. She was very easy to talk with, and took care of the reason for my visit. She asked me if I had any other concerns, taking the time to explain what I was experiencing. Dr. Ballo then told me about some topical creams she could prescribe. I definitely feel as if I killed 2 birds with 1 stone!! I gladly will give Forefront Dermatology my recommendation!!
