My wife and I had our second visit recently for our yearly physicals, and found our 2nd visit essentially the same as our 1st. A pleasant experience (considering it's a physical you are having). We have found Dr. Ballard pleasant and professional at all times. The staff also professional and pleasant. You don't feel like a number being shuffled around. Everything is done at one location. There is no going here for this, then driving there for that. You almost feel like a VIP or something. At the end of the exam the Dr. sat down with us and discussed his findings, and gave us a name and number to call in regards to something he found, explaining that they were accustomed to having people referred to them by him. If the company we work for continues to pay for our physicals, we will most definitely continue to go there to have them.

I found Lifesigns to be a breath of fresh air. Who ever thought of the concept is a genious. Not only does it save ALOT of time, but the staff is wonderful. There are no cold drabby hospital garments here they actually have plush terry cloth robes. Warm, welcoming and inviting. I recommend everyone to check it out for themselves. As for Dr. Ballard, I have never had the pleasure of meeting someone as charismatic as he, too bad there are not many establishments like Lifesigns.

When I scheduled my appointment, I discussed with the scheduler that the purpose was to get a specific set of tests done, with a medical evaluation, and to have the doctor fill out a set of forms that are required to apply for service into the Peace Corps. The scheduler told me that Peace Corps applicants have had their medical evaluations done at LifeSigns before, and they were familiar with the process.

When I first met Dr. Ballard, during my appointment, I began to discuss the same information with him that I discussed with the scheduler. The doctor became quickly agitated and told me that he didn??t do that, that he didn??t have time to fill out forms, and that I needed to schedule an appointment with a general practitioner. I said that the scheduler had told me otherwise, and that LifeSigns had done Peace Corps medical evaluations before. The doctor responded by saying ??Well, the person who told you that was stupid,? and then he left the examination room. He re-entered a couple minutes later and reiterated that he wasn??t going to fill out the forms. I expressed that I thought it was very unprofessional that he call one of the staff stupid. He responded ??Well, so are you? and stormed out of the examining room again and didn??t return.

At this point, I felt like I was talking with a small child instead of an esteemed doctor. I was completely taken aback. If a mistake was made by the scheduler, then that is one issue, but this response is far worse. Although LifeSigns claims to value wellness, promote lowering stress levels, and offer a comfortable examination experience, my experience didn't match with those characteristics. Also, the fact that the doctor became that quickly agitated for no apparent reason indicates a lack of concern about the health and wellness of the patient.

The other staff members I met at the facility were pleasant, helpful, and they took steps to rectify the problem. Their attitude and professionalism were in stark contrast to Dr. Terrance Ballard. However, Dr. Ballard is the only examining physician that facility has available.

One other consideration regarding LifeSigns is that if the physician finds a problem during their screening tests, they may make a recommendation for follow-up, but they will not make the necessary referral themselves. This means you have to schedule an appointment with your Primary Care Physician anyway just to get an actual referral for the same recommended follow-up. This is very inefficient and incurs extra costs, so it may make more sense to get your yearly physical at a place that simply refers you directly for follow-up work.

My employer recommended LifeSigns at their benefits fair. I got an entire physical done in about an hour. This included a chest x-ray, blood draw, EKG, ultra sound, eye test, hearing test and doctor consultation. The staff was friendly and curteous. I got my results back in less than a week. I plan on going back every year for my annual physical. Even if you have to pay for it, it's well worth the visit.

PROS: Great fast service
CONS: None
