Dr. Batson was an absolute joke. I sent my son to him. Dr Batson lacks confidence He apparently did all of his medical training in the Caribbean because he couldn't get into an American medical school. He was curt and stated that Wellbutrin could be given to my son who has a seizure disorder. When I confronted Dr. Batson on his error, he stood up and said that the appt was over.

Treated me as if I was a statistic rather then a patient and bragged about his credentials constantly. Disinterested and judgmental. Never diagnosed. Several doctors in his field has questioned his medications. He just out right has no regard for feelings and made me feel like just a nother number. Find a doctor who will diagnose you and properly treat you with the right medications.

Dr Batson has helped my son tremendously weaning him off medication that his other psychiatrist put him on.

This doctor is terrible. He lets personal opinions cloud his treatment plans. He's completely monotone and has -100 bedside manner. You don't want to see this doctor. If you are a new patient find another now because you will be after your first appointment

Not pleasant, no bed side manner, and monotone. There is a plethora of reasons why he is not suited for me. frustrating to the max. Facility will not let me switch to another Dr. in Psychiatry because of company policy.

My father was diagnosed and "treated" by Dr. Batson for his paranoid disorder. What I mean by treated, was to prescribe his some sleeping pills (which did not work) and send him on his way, not before telling his family to go along with my father's delusions (ie. of being followed by the FBI, or of being recorded/wire tapped by the FBI with the help of his family etc.) and that he should come back in 4 months. 4 months!!! I am not sure how this man is licensed to practice medicine.

Dr. Batson has helped my family with his depth of knowledge and caring spirit. Waited over a year to see him, but it was worth the weight.
