Well so far no one has called me back when I was told they were going to call and give me a phone visit or call me and schedule an appointment. And this was all I got was a survey. They were going to call. It's been 2 days.

It was great! I didn't feel a thing. It was like taking a good nap and when they woke me it was all over. The staff was overly friendly and I felt comfortable with everyone and everything from beginning to end!

My initial appt. with Dr. Ballard came with great expectations and he didn't disappoint. I found him very knowledgeable and concise in diagnosing my condition. Dr. Ballard was professional and easy to talk to regarding my concerns.

This was my second time having my colonospy. I must say as usual the staff and the doctors each were comforting and helpful. I would recommend this facility and the doctor.
