I had a good experience with the staff as well as Dr. Ballard. The facility was modern, clean, and quiet. The staff was pleasant, respectful, and attentive. Dr. Ballard asked questions, then listened to my answers, and I was able to agree or disagree with the treatment options. He's very easy to understand and to talk to and that's important to me.
