Really enjoyed my visit. Seems to be a well run, efficient office. Shelia is very kind. Felt like she spent just enough time with me, and quickly followed up on additional tests and bloodwork, as necessary. Bloodwork was able to becompleted quickly on site. Hoping I found my Dr. moving forward!

Dr. Ballintine was really kind and patient. She talked to me and listened. I didn't feel rushed at all. Initially, I was in for a new patient intake, but we ended up talking about other issues and she really was compassionate and engaged.

What I like about Dr. Ballantine is that she is very thorough and takes time to answer all my questions. For instance, every time I see her she carefully checks what medications I am taking even though nothing has changed sincemy last visit. I appreciate this as a senior who is taking a lot of prescription drugs. She also seems well informed and up to date on all of my health care issues. And, last but not least she is warm and friendly and inspires a lot of confidence.
