Patient Comments (6)
in Grand Rapids, MI |
My experience with Dr. Battan was excellent. He is very friendly and caring, listens to and answered all the questions I asked. He was also very thorough in explaining his findings on the ultrasound he performed. I ended up having to have a needle biopsy done for a large nodule that was found on my thyroid and he made sure I was all right during the entire procedure.
New York, NY |
I like him. He is thorough, he listens, he takes time to explain things and he asks if I have questions or concerns. He was also up to date on latest research.
in Muskegon, MI |
He and his nurse listened to me and gave me plenty of opportunities to ask questions. He took away all fear that I had with my condition.
in Grand Rapids, MI |
His bedside manner was enraging. He did not seem knowledgeable on my specific condition whatsoever. He not only told me things I already knew long ago, he also slipped in accurate information. My allergist knew far more about my thyroid condition than Dr. Battan. He tried pressuring me into getting an expensive scan that "only he could do" by using scare tactics, telling me I may have cancer. He told me that there was no hope of my condition leaving so I'll just have to live with it.
in Zeeland, MI |
Dr. Battan and his nurse Carrie were very compassionate and reassuring. They tried to ease my mind about my procedure and allowed me plenty of time to ask any questions.
in Rothbury, MI |
I have been going to this office for the past year, Dr Battan dOesn't listen to anything i have to say abOut my symptoms or what's going on with my body even though i have frIends and lots of family with thyroid diseases plus have talked with my primary care physician, he just cuts me off saying everybody is lieing to me even my PCP, i won't be going back there and wasting our money or insurance for somebody to not listen to their patient and constantly call them a liar
