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.

A fantastic Dermatologist! She and her staff are so nice. Dr. Ballo is very thorough and explains things so you can understand it. Never mind seeing her. I recommend everyone to have your skin checked yearly. Don’t put it off it could mean your life!!

Dr. Ballo is WONDERFUL! She removed a very deep wooden splinter from my foot and it was painless, after the anesthesia shot. ;) She is always a joy to visit and screen me for skin cancer in a very professional manner.

My unpleasant facial skin inflammation of several weeks was readily diagnosed by Dr. Ballo (plain ol' contact dermatitis--new for me, common for her) and a treatment regimen put in play immediately. Dr.Ballo was professional but, equally important, warm and friendly. I felt comfortable talking with her and would be very comfortable using her services again, should that prove necessary.

I appreciate the quality care, professionalism, and friendliness of Doctor and nurse. At times I felt a bit rushed. Some staff exceptionally friendly and helpful, some mediocre. Overall great experience. Thank you.

I would also like to comment on the experience with the staff who admit you to the room, update information and clarify reason for visit. They are present with the Dr., updating notes & providing assistance as needed. At this visit the support person was pleasant, thorough, knowledgable and supportive. She set the tone of the experience and was focused throughout. This is NOT how all medical appts are structured. It is worth mentioning because it doesn’t always happen this way. They have a system that works and the staff provide the continuity for patients. The providers are able to come in, complete their assessment, discuss and provide treatment efficiently and move on, knowing their patients are supported by engaged focused staff through to discharge. A system that is successful! Many medical clinics could improve patient satisfaction by mirroring this formula.
