TERRIBLE! Can't say much more then that. He can't communicate with family, he seemed stressed that we were asking questions. The only good thing is that he referred my father to OSU, so hopefully he doesn't have to see Dr. Batten again!

Terrible bedside manner, I had kidney Cancer and any problems I had after he removed my kidney his only response was "it's nothing I did" he had no interest in checking to see what the problem might be, I have moved on but highly recommend you find a different urologist, this man is worthless.
