Patient Comments (4)

I got opinions from 5-6 other doctors (it's a blur at this point), who were unable to help me out. Dr. Bath knew what it was seemingly almost immediately and put me on the right course. He answered all my questions and I didn't hold back.

I was ill while in a 3rd world country and my regular PCP wasn't available, during my 6 day stay Dr. Bath comforted me and kept me focused, on my return he had Melrose Wakefield up to speed, resulting in faster treatment ultimately avoiding a very bad ending. Im forever grateful

Dr. Bath is a very kind, caring and compassionate physician. He listens to you and answers all your questions. Very thorough in examining his pts. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is an asset to the Hallmark Health Medical Associates. Hallmark should be lucky to have him.....
