Verified Patient Reviews
Very pleasant demeanor and very professional highly recommend!
So, I had written a great review about Dr. Ballen that conformed to the ZocDoc guidelines (no profanity, no personal information, no specific treatment information, no pricing specifics, no promotional content) but ZocDoc kicked it back to me to rewrite for some reason (and they didn't give a reason). Dr. Ballen is great--her entire staff is wonderful. Sorry I can't elaborate...the ZocDoc censors are watching. Overall, I would recommend Dr. Ballen.
She is compassionate, knowledgeable and amazing. Definitely the best experience I have ever had with a psychiatrist.
Extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Proposed treatment that has tremendously helped and is helpful in managing and fine tuning things to get the most helpful and successful end result. Also has amazing availability compared to anywhere else I contacted, have always been able to get in when I needed to be seen.
we saw Dr Ballen today for the first time. She was very professional but sympathetic at the same time, a good listener. She navigated the difficulties during the appointment very well with out being Judgemental.
(written by patient's mother who also met with Dr. Ballen.) Dr. Ballen is approachable, kind, truthful, professional and caring.
I had a good experience with Dr. Ballen and would recommend her. She was professional, friendly, and attentive. I think she is an excellent doctor.

It was a great experience -- I would highly recommend Dr. Ballen to anyone. Very personable and nice office staff.
We thought that Dr. Ballen was very caring and concerned. She took her time and explained things thoroughly. We agreed with her philosophy in not wanting to over medicate and to slowly wean off. Really enjoyed speaking to DiShaun! She made us feel welcomed and was very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend Dr. Ballen and her office!
It was good. She is honest and happy to listen. Only reason my wait was long was due to an emergency visit right before me. Overall, great lady

Professional and caring
It was helpful as usual, practical and to the point.
I want to start this by saying that I think Dr. Ballen seems like a very knowledgeable and kind-hearted psychiatrist. Had it not been for the rest of my experience in the office I would certainly return to see her. However the experiences I had in the hour I spent waiting for Dr. Ballen to arrive (she was running late) completely deterred me from ever returning to this practice. When I arrived for my appointment I was greeted by a man and a woman who both seemed very frantic. They were certainly very welcoming, but the atmosphere was so chaotic that I was immediately uneasy. The women introduced herself with just her first name (no title or credentials), while I only picked up the man's name from hearing the woman use it in conversation. Dr. Ballen was running late, and as such the man said we were going to get started with some paperwork to expedite the appointment when she arrived. He had me sit in his office- with the door wide open- for what I assumed would be some routine medical history questions (allergies, etc). Keep in mind I still have no idea who this man is or what his credentials are. The next thing I know he begins asking very specific and detailed questions about my mental illness... questions that I would expect to be asked only by Dr. Ballen herself. All the while the woman keeps wandering in and out of the office's open door- able to overhear everything I was saying. Again- I have NO idea if these two are doctors, receptionists, assistants... it was very disconcerting. After giving way more history of my mental illness to the man than I had expected to, he launched into a lengthy diatribe about his thoughts on my illness and treatment. He basically stated that in time I would not need medication because I would be able to control my brain myself. He made me feel as though my mental illness was my own fault- as if I was just so out of control of my own brain that I was causing this myself. I have a well diagnosed anxiety disorder, and this is the first time in over a decade of treatment that I have ever had someone in a medical facility make me feel as though my disorder is my fault. While I feel as though everyone in this office meant well, I left feeling very discouraged and uncomfortable. Dr. Ballen seems like an excellent psychiatrist, but I hope in the future they get some of these things ironed out. On a side note- the relaxation music playing on the cd player kept skipping. Quite a fitting metaphor for my entire visit.
She was great!
I recently moved here from out of state and feel grateful to have found such a caring, professional doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Ballen. She really cares about her her patients needs and concerns.
Delightful personality, compassionate, kind and truly interested in helping others.

Dr. Ballen is the best.
Helpful and understanding...
She spent a great deal of time with me and offered multiple solutions to improve the issues I am working through.
Really great Doc. Looking forward to future visits.
Not only was dr mallen and her P.A. so knowledgeable and helpful but their concern and follow up with me was way beyond the norm.. I have had many psychiatrists in the past years and her practice is by far the best I have seen.
