Dr. Bath was nice, knowledgeable and very pleasant to meet with.
It was the best Dr. appointment I ever had. Everyone from the front desk to MA and the Dr. was so kind and caring and very professional! I suffer from anxiety and I was calm and relaxed from a few minutes when I walked in! I’m looking forward to my health care relationship with this practice! Very grateful I was referred to this practice!
The appointments always get started on the right track with a courteous and knowledgeable staff. Of all the physicians I have interacted with, Dr. Bath is not only the most professional, but also the most caring. An appointment is like having a conversation with your best friend with the added benefit of a being a well educated medical expert.

Dr. Bath it's an amazing doctor. He carefully listens, is empathetic and always provides an excellent array of options to treat patients. I'm pleased that he is my doctor.
Dr.Bath is great. Would recommend him to anyone. Friendly, approachable, and willing to listen. He doesn't just tell you what to do he listens and talks you through options and what can be done to keep a process moving. 5/5 stethoscopes.
This was my first appointment with Dr Bath. He was outstanding. Got in early and he took his time explaining my conditions and medications. He also is doing his "homework" to reach out and gather my past profile so we can be even more on the same page next time. Like I said, only my first visit but very impressed with Dr Bath and his staff.
He is just a really good, caring, warm doctor. And his staff was nice and very helpful.
I enjoyed the fact that i never felt rushed during this appointment. Dr. Bath was very attentive and genuinely seemed like he cared about my questions and concerns. I would recommend him to others looking for a good primary care physician.
Professional, polite and to the point. Always explains everything completely and always asks if you understand and or have any questions.
Really great. Friendly staff, friendly MD, positive vibe.
Terrific doctor. Very kind, understanding and patient. Took time to speak about all issues and family history. Office staff and nurse were very friendly and professional. I wasted no time in the waiting area. Came in 15 mins early and was immediately seen. Doctor Bath came in within 5 minutes of being shown the room. Might have been one of my best doctors office experiences.
I really liked my first appointment with Dr. Bath today, he seemed both knowledgeable and sensitive to my questions. I did, however, find the front desk personell to be slightly unprofessional. All around a good experience though.
