TERRIBLE! Can't say much more then that. He can't communicate with family, he seemed stressed that we were asking questions. The only good thing is that he referred my father to OSU, so hopefully he doesn't have to see Dr. Batten again!
Terrible bedside manner, I had kidney Cancer and any problems I had after he removed my kidney his only response was "it's nothing I did" he had no interest in checking to see what the problem might be, I have moved on but highly recommend you find a different urologist, this man is worthless.
Saw Dr. Batten for 6 mos. for uti's; then had 1st kidney stone. Very uncommunicative. Friends told me I should be straining my urine, have pain meds, pain could come & go & could last for weeks. He ordered xray & ultrasound almost a week later even tho I was in great pain. Another week+ passed before he had an ambulance take me to ER from his office because I was in such pain & vomiting. ER C-scan confirmed stone seen on xray. Never contacted me. New doctor explained all and treated me.
I have been a patient of Dr. Batten's for just about two decades now- He IS the BEST!! When a patient, such as me, has recurrent kidney stones- they can hit at any time- day or night...no matter when, Dr. Batten has always been responsive in a quick, caring manner. Dr. Batten gives it to you straight- cares for and resolves issues in an efficient and effective manner. I cannot imagine anyone else caring for my Urology needs.
I have seen Dr. Batten on 3 occasions. Each time he has been very efficient in resolving my immediate problem with my prostate blocking and preventing urine flow. While we have been taking the least invasive steps to resolve my problem, we are considering future steps for a long-range solution. His office staff is friendly and efficient as well.
RN and MD are both rude and inconsiderate. They have a very flat affect and no bedside manner. I will never return.
