Dr. Phillip W Ballard has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr. Ballard is the best!

Dr. Ballard is awesome. At first I didn't feel comfortable with him, but now that he has been my doc for 15t years we can joke back and forth. He answers all my questions and he takes good care of me and my family. No one can replace him and I dread the day he retires!

Avoid at all costs

I am still (unfortunately) a current patient as my Insurance is very restrictive and Psychiatrists are hard to get appointments with. Dr. Ballard does not listen to a word you say, after all HE is the doctor and we are clearly all sub-human morons. I have never met someone with such a terrible bedside manor (considering his field it leave so much to be desired). I literally have anxiety attacks when I have to go in for follow up as I know I am going to be chopped down and treated like a child each time. I have seen other Psychiatrists in the past, and although none were perfect, they were superstars in contrast to Dr. Ballard. Good luck to all in his clutches.

Liked Dr Ballard on my first visit

And continue to feel comfortable around him and feel free to ask any questions I have. He has given me his attention and listened to my issues. He understands what I am saying and gives honest advice and a plan to control my symptoms. He's a straight forward doctor and some people may dislike his manorisms but not every doctor matches well with every patient. For me he was exactly what I needed in a doctor and I would recommend him to anyone.
