Specialties

Dr. David S Ballestas has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

Horrible experience

I can't believe he is still working and having patients, he was unprofessional, rude and not knowledgeable, he told me I must take picture of my medication if I don't know the dosage so next time he doesn't have to ask, he asked irrelevant questions and was upset all the time during the appointment. I will never go there again.

One Star

The doctor and the staff are not well-educated about the new health care laws. Both my husband and I made appointments for well visits/preventative care. They incorrectly coded both of our office visits, blood work, my husband's chest x-ray and my bone density scan as diagnostic, instead of preventative. This means we received bills incorrectly for copays for all of these services.
