Cannot overstate Dr. Ballif's professional yet kind demeanor. He explains things well, asks what questions I have and patiently answers any concerns I have. I know he has other patients, but in every visit he makes me feel like I am the only one he is concerned about while he is with me.

Dr. Balliff followed through and sent the note he said he would to my other doctor. He is a part of a team and acted like it.
Nov 3, 2020
I didn't have a problem or concern to address but I did find it weird how little time I actually spent with the doctor vs. nurse/assistant.
