You are seen in order from who showed up first even if you have an “appointment”. You can drop by at any time if you need to be seen but only get simple responses to text/emails such as “ok” or “come now”. I’ve waited 10 minutes to an hour and a half. Dr doesn’t understand what is Being explained to him. . Very small waiting area. Stated my expectations were to high by wanting someone who listens and explains. Belittles you and turns things you say around.

This man only communicates through very rude text message conversations, such as "what you need" or "?". For someone that supposedly specializes in mental health he lacks some very basic human communication skills. Due to his inability to conversate as a professional medical practitioner, It was simply impossible to schedule an appointment with him.

He is rude, unprofessional, rushes people out in under 5 minutes and often (8 out of 10) times writes scripts with missing refills. He dosen't care about his patiences, all he cares about is money. Charges $150.00 cash for a 3 minute session in which he spends typing and texting After 4 prescription in one year, all missing refills, then he doesn't approve it over the phone with the pharmacy and tells you to come in then tries to charge you and extra $50 for his mistake. Avoid him at all costs.

Dr. Babyants is a true professional. I have been in his care for 5 years. He is always been there when I need him, no matter the time...day or night. I recently changed medications and he contacted me daily to see how it was working out. In my experience the only people who have problems with him are those who do not understand the word "no" and have been spoiled with other pay to play doctors. Dr. Babayants does not entertain such shenanigans nor does he run a charity.

I have had about 3 visits with the doctor, I like him, he is direct and to the point. He can read people by observation and questions asked. I also speak frankly and like that he is direct and to the point. Being only about 5 weeks into addressing my issues, I feel I'm getting better. I'm thankful to have Dr. Babayants treating me.

I went to see this doctor around one and a half years ago when he was on Jefferson Avenue and he was horrible. All he cared about was money and he did not accept my Medicaid. In order to get more medication he makes you come every 7-10 days. I don't know how this is legal by any means. he has no compassion and never gives you a scheduled appointment. Thankfully, I found another doctor and am very happy now with my care. Avoid him and he doesn't accept insurance!

Dr. Babayants is unprofessional, selfish & completely inappropriate as my family experienced during a recent hospital stay. His response to all my questions was “I don’t remember” or “I don’t know the details.” He made sure to say he was “very busy” & didn’t have the time to be spending talking with me. Dr. Babayants is not someone I would ever choose for medical care. Being ignorant, unprofessional, & undedicated to the patient, especially for a child, is grounds for dismissal in my book.

This?guy is a mess; avoid. Despite seeing unfavorable reviews on Healthgrades & Vitals, I reached out because I was drawn to his mission statement about his desire to help people. All he wants is your money on his time. He only schedules via single word texts. Charges $150 a visit, doesn't take insurance and spends about 2-4 minutes per visit. Expect others to hear everything you're saying as the door remains open while others sit outside waiting. No appointments, show up and hope he does too.
