I had a positive initial appointment with Dr. Batson this week. I found him to be competent, pleasant and not rushed. He answered all of my questions and had some interesting thoughts and information to share about psychiatry and mood management beyond traditional medication management. Based on my positive initial appointment, I look forward to working with this provider (through in-person and telehealth appointments) going forward.

Dr. Nicholas Batson is one of the worst doctors I have ever had the displeasure of seeing. Felt like a just another number to him, not a real person with feelings. He seemed completely uninterested in hearing about my symptoms and was very quick to prescribe medication. Zero eye contact at all. I will not be going back to him and would never recommend him to someone else. He is vey full of himself. He is more interested in being right than in treating the patient. I have no idea how he became head of the psychiatric program at Crystal Run. I was also surprised at how young he is. He looks barely old enough to drive let alone have a medical license.

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.

Be Warned! – Oct 16, 2019
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.

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.
