Dr. Battista has horrible bedside manner. He is one of the most unfriendly Doctors I have ever been to. As a previous review stated, “if you hate the people you treat do something different for a living. Any skill and knowledge he has is completely lost by his atrocious beside manner. Unfortunately I need to find another physician.

This man is a monster!! Not only is he the most unhelpful doctor I've had the misfortune to see, but has the bedside manner of a cold fish. He is rude, abrupt and overall hostile. I thought doctors were suppose to be knowledgeable. He kept repeating "I don't know" "I don't know". Don't waist your time. He is awful.

Personality various, has been very condescending and rude to simple questions regarding diagnoses and surgery. Even though he encourages calling him with questions, When he calls you back, he is very rude and actually said "I am tired of these questions"! What Dr. says this to a patient, when just a simple question was asked.

I've been seeing Dr. Battista for 10 years and he is incredibly gifted; both as a Dr. and a human being. He is professional, polite and very thorough. I would recommend him to everyone and anyone. I'm always amazed that such a popular Dr. with his reputation, always sees his patients on a timely basis. He's one of my favorite doctors and I do hope he doesn't retire at a young age. I'm happy to be able to share these comments. Thank you.
