    Dr. Ballert was very good. She had a student with her that actually ran the test but both talked to me and explained to me what was going to happen what the procedure would be the risks involved and what might happen afterwards. So I was fully informed and they proceeded just as they told me they would and everything went just as they said. All in all great experience as far as their jobs are concerned.

    Seemed disappointed I didn't have cancer and offered no treatment for the condition I did have.

    Dr did not address my sis with Downs syndrome. Ssid she couldn't use test report obtained from another practice even though her colleague from a previous visit we had at UK said we could use this report. Was very discouraging and dismissive

      There was a student doctor that preformed my procedure, and I'm typically pretty stressed out in those situations, but they talked through the steps and helped lessen my anxiety. During the procedure it felt like the student was a little rougher than typical, but I'm also not the easiest patient, so overall I'm just happy to being closure to a diagnosis and solution.

      The experiences I have had at U Urology and with all the providers working under Dr. Ballertt have been great. She is caring and honest. She is not afraid to say she doesn't know something. That is refreshing.
