The doctor was ok, I didn’t feel like he was really listing to my past history and what worked in the past for me, but I understand that many drs have a hesitation and are reluctant to prescribe certain sleep aids.He was professional and explanatory and if it were just him I would return without second thought. Unfortunately however, the wait time and incompetence of the front desk staff was unacceptable. I will not be returning. I booked this appointment on my lunch break and waited a little over an hour to be seen. When I inquired about the wait time the receptionist told me “oh I thought you were here for a meeting”.... what?!

Dr. Batah saw me as a new patient on relatively short notice, as I needed follow-up care from an accident that occurred when I was visiting Detroit. Both Dr. Batah and his staff were not only professional but very solicitous. Mostimportant to me, they all took the time to really speak with me, answer all my questions, and explain what was going on with me and the information I needed to know. I had a similarly good experience when I returned to Michigan for a follow-up appointment a month later. My only critique is that they don't have a Medical Records Request Form for their office available, which made it very difficult for me to get a copy of my records from Dr. Batah's office delivered to my PCP in NYC (it is also very costly to do in an individual capacity, rather than submitting a request through a medical practitioner). I would definitely recommend Dr. Batah and his office.!

Busy office with a good bit of a wait, but given that this was my first visit, I can’t really base anything on that. Overall, very professional and friendly office staff, same for Doc.

I have spent months trying to get an explanation for an issue I was having. The knowledgeable Dr. Batah was able to spot my issue and provide an explanation immediately due to his training and experience. This trip was worth my time.

I was nervous going in as I was a new patient being seen about a sensitive subject. I felt I was in a safe space and felt very welcomed. Dr. Batah was excellent during my visit. If you are like methen you want a doctor who you feel is exceptionally skilled at their craft and treats you well, he is that.

1. As a woman in her 30s (no children), I inquired about long-term birth control such as IUDs, but the doctor's response against me having one because of my age and "what if" i wanted to have children soon weremore than just a bit condescending, and sexist, as if I never considered my options thoroughly. 2. Completely unprofessional assistants in the office that did not know what the heck they were doing in setting up a pap exam. 3. Having unprofessional assistant and another doctor observe in the room during said exam without my consent. I was extremely uncomfortable with this, and did not appreciate the lack of notice or respect to ask. 4. Requested blood work during exam, only to not have one. 5. No notification of exam results.

Very friendly staff Very quick service I felt the doctor spent a extended period of time with me to first understand my problem, to assess the situation and then to offer advice. I will follow up with him on this andhave no reservations in making him my primary care physician.

This man is the most horrible excuse of a doctor. Stay away from this poor excuse of a man and a physician. My first appointment with this fool was very sad, bad and had. Hippocratic Oath: Please read this as thisphysician did not comply with one word below. Hippocratic Oath, Modern Version I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this covenant: I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow. I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures which are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism. I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon's knife or the chemist's drug. I will not be ashamed to say "I know not," nor will I fail to call in my colleagues when the skills of another are needed for a patient's recovery. I will respect the privacy of my patients, for their problems are not disclosed to me that the world may know. Most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death. If it is given me to save a life, all thanks. But it may also be within my power to take a life; this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God. I will remember that I do not treat a fever chart, a cancerous growth, but a sick human being, whose illness may affect the person's family and economic stability. My responsibility includes these related problems, if I am to care adequately for the sick. I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure. I will remember that I remain a member of society, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the infirm. If I do not violate this oath, may I enjoy life and art, respected while I live and remembered with affection thereafter. May I always act so as to preserve the finest traditions of my calling and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.
