Ratings for Dr. Darryl J. Ballin
Front desk is often plain rude, exam room "nurses" are just OK. The doctor himself is caring and knowledgeable, but badly organized, possibly in part because of the staff he directs, although it is hard to know the reason. He always seems in a rush, but will listen. Think he needs a different practice setting to provide the care of which he seems capable.
Dr. Ballin's ability and conscientiousness is exception in this day and age of "rush, "rush." As one reviewer said, his staff can be very UNhelpful at times, however. I will keep recommending him and hope the staff will improve their professionalism.
I absolutely love and adore Dr. Ballin and his staff! I have been a patient of his for 13 years. He is very attentive, warm, personable and a great bedside manner. He has saved my life!!! He keeps a close eye on my health..I love him dearly...Thank you for saving me so I am able to see another day!
In my opinion, Dr. Ballin does not pay enough careful attention to the patients. He appears to triple book his appointments, keeps patients waiting for unacceptably long periods, seems to be unmindful/forgetful of important personal details about his patients, has mis-billed repeatedly, fails to undertake sometimes what the patient feels would be the appropriate tests and has missed making accurate diagnoses in my opinion. Once he said to take cold medicine when actually the patient had a viral infection. I would definitely not recommend this doctor.
