I have been seen and treated by Dr. Batlle since April 2019, due to injuries from a fall in 2018. He was kind, encouraging, and patiently explained my problem and his recommendation. I was relieved that I finally found someone to address my neck & back pain and progressive arm & leg weakness. My Workman's Comp doctor in Odessa refused to order an MRI or acknowledge the seriousness of my injury. Thank God for Dr. Batlle because he diagnosed me with a cervical spinal cord injury. I had a crushed spinal cord that Workman's Comp refused to treat for 6 months! Dr. Batlle did a fusion at C3-4 and C4-5 that took the pressure off my spinal cord. I am also grateful and appreciative of his staff, who worked efficiently to get it done.

Extremely accommodating, considering the tight schedule I gave them. Surgery lasted 2-1/2hr instead of the usual 3-1/2 to 4hrs. Hospital he uses is top notch, with an very low patient to nurse ratio, which is fantastic, and the nurses were incredibly dedicated, considerate and pleasant. The surgery went superbly well, and a month and a half later, 99.5% of my symptoms are gone, before even starting therapy. More face time with the doctor would be a plus, but team and PA do a great job.

So thankful I found Dr. Batlle after I was in a helicopter crash in 2013. He operated on both the cervical (Jan.2015) and lumbar (Dec.2016) portions of my spine. He was very thorough when explaining my options and what to expect. It is nearly 2 years post cervical fusion (3 levels) and I’m convinced he worked miracles. The daily excruciating pain I had prior to surgery is gone. He has given me the quality of life I hoped for. His staff is wonderful to work with and extremely professional.

My name is Jose Sixtos and I am being assisted on the translation of my review. I could not be happier with Dr. Batlle and staff. I had a large disc herniation which debilitated me in my everyday functions. Dr. Batlle saw me extremely fast and offered conservative care prior to my surgery. He was very conservative in my care and explained all in detail. I am 6 weeks post surgery and my low back is better than ever. I am returning to work in 2 weeks. Thank you Dr. Batlle!!

I had ACDF C5-C6-C7 surgery performed by Dr. Batlle approximately two weeks ago. The results have been outstanding, the service provided by Dr. Batlle's staff and the hospital personnel was performed were well above all my expectations. I have experienced a minimum amount of pain during recovery, the remaining scar is well below that you can see in the internet and I am well on my way to full recovery.
