Early in my life, I knew I wanted to be a nurse and care for people. I became a Neonatal ICU nurse and loved watching the little ones grow and defy odds on a daily basis. We nurses were advocates for these children, as well as their families. During this time, I decided I wanted to be a Nurse Practitioner so I could care for and advocate for my patients along the entire lifespan – from newborn to elderly.
I thoroughly enjoy getting to know and care for my patients. The most rewarding experience as a provider is to help patients and witness their progress as they improve their health, overcome obstacles and reach their goals.
Great medicine treats and cares for the whole person. Proverbs says, “A joyful heart is good medicine,” and I truly believe that laughter and love is the greatest medicine. As a Nurse Practitioner, I want to consider the whole person - spiritually, physically and mentally – to help them achieve optimal health and live a full and happy life.

i felt like I received excellent care and courtesy from everyone involved. Amber was amazing! She made me feel comfortable and did a great job doing a PAP quickly.
excellent service. appreciate doing this survey.
I truly enjoyed my visit with Amber!
I actually called to get in with a doctor but since I couldn't get in with her as quickly, they gave me to Amber. Amber is intelligent, kind beyond words and genuinely cared about me. That is almost as important as my actual care. She is a gem!
I love amber Ballard!!!! she is so smart and always listens to my problems and ask about my mental health, not just physical. she is so compassionate and understands my concerns. I will never see anyone other than her. 10/10 stars!!Are you happy with the care you received from this provider?
