Accepting new patients

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.

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.
|

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!
