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 backto 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.

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.

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 madeus feel welcomed and was very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend Dr. Ballen and her office!

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. Howeverthe 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.
