I have now seen Dr. Labatia several times for different issues. Being an athlete and very concerned for my health, I have seen many doctors, and I have to say that Dr. Labatia is one of the best. He is calm,understanding, and willing to discuss with you your opinions and concerns. Front staff is friendly and efficient and wait times are minimal to none. I highly recommend him!

I needed a Primary Care Physician and used Zoc Doc to cross reference with my insurance company to find a doctor available on my schedule without having to call offices. Dr. Labatia and his staff were great and I will beusing him in the future for any medical issues that may arise.

I visited Dr. Labatia due to symptoms which I had explained to staff. He asked me a few questions, then referred me to another specialist. he patted my knee and said I would be fine. I drove home...and I meanthis may seem a little weird, but my symptoms had gone away! So what now? My family and I are great...I had an impromptu talk with all involved...I mean, "What more can I say/"

One of my key measures for any doctor's visit is the wait time. I'm a new patient, so I arrived 20 minutes prior to my appointment time to fill out the required paperwork. They called me back 5 minutes before myappointment time and before I had finished the paperwork. A+ The doctor was great. Asked a lot of questions to get to know me and was thorough in his exam for an annual physical. A
