Specialties

Dr. John T Ball 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.

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

Five Stars

Dr. Ball has been my excellent primary doctor for many, many years, for several reasons: he's very knowledgeable, explains thoroughly what symptoms, test results, etc., mean--in easy-to-understand language; won't order unnecessary tests or pills; is very down-to-earth; rather than pills, etc., all of which of course have side effects, prefers that patients use natural treatment if possible such as exercise & diet (In my experience, I've found that too many other doctors simply prescribe a pill or drug); is compassionate & cares about the personal & financial situation of his patients & acts accordingly; takes time to ask pertinent questions and to explain things rather than, as too many other doctors, leaving patients in dark as to reasons for symptoms, tests, etc. In addition, Dr. Ball's quietly competent & friendly manner make it easy to talk thoroughly with him
