Columbia, MD |
I have been experiencing bad health since 2012 with several abdominal surgeries. In the last six months, I have had weakness on my left side and have to use a cane. On top of the weakness, I seem to be having short term memory loss and trouble speaking. I saw Dr Babkes and tried to give him my whole history, but he interrupted for his own agenda. Also while he was doing some test such as pulling my arm while I tried to resist, he claimed I wasn't trying. I would have loved for him to listen!

I would recommend my Dr. Babkes, MD to my friends and family without hesitation. He is wonderful and have helped me with pain control of one of the worst kind of nerve pain(trigeminal nerve pain). I am able to keep my job and have a life. Highly recommend him oh yes. Thank you Dr. Babkes, MD.

He didn't really listen to my concerns, only spent 10 minutes with me and just wrote me a prescription. After researching the Rx he wrote me, I am starting to wonder why it was ever put on this. Now I am having horrible side effects and he did not seem concerned at all. Not super happy.
