Dr. Batista's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Batista "I chose gastroenterology because it is one of the few medical subspecialties that provide the opportunity to treat complex patients as well as perform highly technical procedures, which I find to be personally challenging and rewarding. I enjoy being able to improve the quality of life for patients with debilitating conditions as well as being able to offer minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic alternatives to surgery."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Batista "My approach to patient care is collaborative. I believe it is important to actively engage patients in order to choose the most appropriate treatment plan, while working closely with primary-care physicians, surgeons and other members of the healthcare team to ensure the best care.

I believe in taking time to listen to patients, then clearly present diagnostic and treatment options based on my medical knowledge and expertise, while respecting the patient's wishes. My goal is to help patients achieve the best possible outcomes"

This isn't about dr Batista but his receptionist, Brittany. Called in with severe pain. She was cold and offered no help at all. I won't go back to him because I wouldn't get the help needed because she doesn't care or listen.
