Was very pleased with his professionalism and his explanation to me. I saw him on ERCP which requires expertise beyond the normal gaterenterologist.

Would not recomend to anyone. Was treated as a subordinate. I do not usually leave reviews. Won’t be back Batista. With all of the insurance companies that he takes I’m sure some people don’t have any other choice. Didn’t take the time to listen and informed me of what i already was aware of, my own medical history.

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.

I would never recommend this dr! He didn't listen, my daughter has severe gastroparesis and we came to him in hopes of getting answers! He didn't even listen to her stomach! My daughter and I both left in tears, so discouraged! We waited 2 months to make this appointment and they didn't have records transfered over! He was short, didnt listen! Had no answers! My daughter has lost 45 pounds in 4 months ! He is supposed to be a specialist!
