everything went very well. Only complaint is they were running about 20 minutes late and didn't bother to inform anyone. I was going to give it 20 minutes and then walk out. I earn much more than the doctor's do, yet they feel their time is more valuable than the patients which is not true!

I come in regularly for body scans which can be uncomfortable. Dr. Ballo is very kind and considerate and makes me feel comfortable in that situation. Dr. Ballo is always very prompt - no waiting.

I arrived a minute or two before my arrival time with a cup of coffee and book. I barely got to enjoy my coffee and never did open my book in the waiting room before I was ushered into the exam room. Once in the room, I was able to get thru just one or two pages before Dr Ballo came in. Very efficient, got to my volunteer job on time.

Dr Ballo provides great care. She’s always very warm and friendly, listens attentively, explains things thoroughly and offers reassurance. Love Dr Ballo and have had 3 family members and several friends see her.

Very pleasant DR. Staff were efficient and very easy to ask questions. I would have liked a printout of my care, that I am to do at home, for reference. I would recommend the clinic, DR and I have no reservations about coming back. Thanks for the help.
