Dr Battan is the best! I trust him implicitly with my health and, for that matter, with my life. My only regret is that I don't get to see him any more.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
