Omaha, NE |
Dr. Batter is a very good physician who provides excellent follow-up to his patients. We recommend him highly.
Omaha, NE |
Outcome at times differed what he said pre-op ex. pacemaker location. Never showed up to explain why-Told he went on vacay. Follow up w/PA not Dr. Told PA I had symptoms of PE. She didn't think I had one, but could go to ER if I wanted. (Admitted next day w/PE by primary dr.) I said I wanted to see him &I'd wait & finally told he didn't have time see me. Years later told by other dr. not MRI compatible pacer like supposed to be. Have severe inflammatory poly arthritis. Needed MRI compatible.

I would give him a zero, but cannot. He denied mistakes made by himself or his staff during surgery. Even a common side effect, his response was I have no idea how that happened. He seems to avoid seeing patients, especially when a problem occurs. He is not interested in providing good care to his patient, only getting through appointments or surgeries as quickly as possible, and then letting others try to mitigate any damage he may have caused. I think he is unscrupulous.
