    Love Dr. Ballert. She always provides good feedback concerning my urological issues. She is my favorite person in the urology department.

    Dr. Ballert is always very attentive and listens to my needs. We talked in depth about a new procedure and she was very reassuring and responsive to my concerns and needs.

    Dr. Ballert was very informative, frank and concerned. She made sure I was included in the conversation and as comfortable as possible. She did not talk down to me at all which is refreshing. People generally consider those of us who are older as stupid, ill-informed etc.

    It wasn't what I wanted to hear, but the dr. was straight forward with me, and I like that.

      Dr. and PA were both in the room. They rushed through the different procedures. I never received my urine sample results. Very disappointed.

      Someone was supposed to come back to the office after the doctor finished and they never came. After waiting 15+ minutes I left. Have not been contacted since then.

      Dr Ballert spent extra time with me and showed concern for my diagnosis and and answered all my questions. She's very knowledgeable and I'm thankful for her care.

      I hadn't met the Resident (?) before this appointment and was not introduced to her prior to her doing the procedure. I think that should be done.

      I thought I was going to have a female urologist,but she gave me to someone else, perhaps under her supervision. Also I fell to eager to do surgery

      I was really happy with the care I was given. I felt like I was working with the doctors and not just being told what to do.

      The doctor came & explained everything to me. She gave the Lidocaine insertion prior to the procedure, as she knew I was anxious.

      I had never seen this provider before this visit. It would have been better to meet her face to face before I was in stirrups. Even a brief meeting would have been professional. Then the nurse & dr. walked out of the office without telling me what I could use to clean up and never came back to tell me I could go. I walked out into the hallway to ask someone passing by if they were done.
