Gastroenterology | Male | 47 years old

"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. "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."Read more

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.
|
He is a very good doctor. He takes the time to listen to you and explain things.
|
Great as always. I appreciated getting in an being seen with minimal wait.
|
Great experiane everyone was very kind and helpfull all the way from checkin to recovery.

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!

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
