Dr Batson and all his staff are excellent. He is very through, does not rush your appointments and explains all options to treat your problem. All injections are done under X-ray. I would highly recommend him.

Not ever will I take my handicapped daughter to this man again. She suffers from 2 rare back issues. I felt he did not listen, or took my concerns seriously. I wanted to get her of the narcotics safely, without her getting sick. I had to insist on a MRI, she recently lost bladder control. Same thing happened to her before she beca,e paralyzed. He is in the wrong field. Coroner, would be more up his ally.

He is a miracle worker. I had an intense pain of my shoulder, near the area of my clivacal. On my visit to him, an x-ray was taken, and then with a form of x-ray, he was able to perfectly inject the right side of my neck. All of my pain was gone in two days, just as he said it would be. I had been treated by Dr. Batson previousy, but not for that problem. In the meantime I had recolated and had to drive,one way, two hundred and fifty miles for his treatment. It well worth it.

I have been very pleased with Dr. Batson and all of his staff. They are all so kind and helpful. I think Dr. Batson is very proficient in his treatments, and he works meticulously yet gently to make the injection experience as comfortable for the patient as possible. The entire atmosphere of his office is very comfortable. The assistants are kind and helpful. The girls at the front desk are so sweet. I was impressed by my visits to his practice, and it is highly likely that I will return.

Dr Batson has impressed me from my first visit ten years ago. He gives as much time as needed is extremely thorough and precise in explaining the situation and options.In my case I have had great results from epidural injections in my upper discs area. These shoots have kept me pain free for long periods of time and able to play tennis four times a week. I can’t over state my level of confidence in Dr Batson. Roger Soens 10/19/17
