Ratings for Dr. Kenneth A. Ballew
I've been Dr. Ballew's patient for about six years. He's unfailingly polite and caring, listens carefully, takes my complaints seriously, is open to suggestions, doesn't complain if I've looked up symptoms and treatments on the internet. I believe him to be highly knowledgeable and have great judgment. I recommend him highly.
I've found that Ballew is helpful. I've known him since his residency in Charlottesville, and he's been my doc since. I'm sorry the other person had a bad time with him, but I think it's an isolated incident. He always listened to me, and always looked for a physical cause, and never tried to pin my physical problems on some type of somatoform disorder.
Dr. Ballew suggested to me my illness was a result of being divorced twelve years earlier. He was so insensative and such a poor listener that I sat there and just cried. He called me three days later when my lab work was back and said to me: "I guess you aren't crazy after all." This happened twice before he referred me to a specialist whose office called me the day they got my records because I needed to be seen asap. I would NOT recommend Dr. Ballew to anyone.
