Hey there fellow outdoor enthusiasts and mountain lovers! I have been practicing medicine for 25 years and I am constantly fascinated by what the skin can tell us about a person’s overall health (most obviously externally but also internally in some cases). I find it extremely rewarding to diagnose and treat various concerns and disorders, especially when I get to observe firsthand how it changes lives and general well-being.
I want my patients to know that I will always treat them with compassion and that they will never be treated as a “number or a diagnosis.” I am dedicated to treating all of my patients with the respect and kindness they deserve. I am also determined to earn my patient’s trust by fully explaining all lesions/medical conditions, offering both verbal and written educational support, and making them feel comfortable enough to ask any questions they may have.
My name is Kelly Ballou (Gaba), PA-C. I am energetic, outgoing, passionate, highly self-motivated and continuously striving to learn new and innovative ways to care for my patients.
I am proud and excited to be opening my new clinic- Renew Dermatology in Summit County. It is my pleasure to continue my career in the exciting practice of Dermatology.
