What People Say About Dr. W Batson Jr, MD
Reply
Had an appt. waited 2 months to get in. I arrive a few minutes early, get checked in and waited over an hour and a half. I listened as the doctor brought in patients, and them leaving. I sat and sat...finally after one hour and 45 minutes, I thought enough is enough! I walked out, saw him in the hallway and said "an hour and 45 minutes sorry, it's unacceptable!" I told them I won't be back. Sorry if a doctor doesn't have respect for his patients time, I don't have respect for his.
