By far the most positive experience I’ve ever had in a doctor’s office. Many are dismissive and Dr. Batash was insightful, patient and understanding. Wonderful and supportive office as well! I’m very thankful

Dr. Batash was great! I was very nervous going into my first appointment, but he was very kind, patient, understanding and easy to talk to. He is also, of course, extremely knowledgeable and I felt like he had my best interestsin mind—I didn’t feel rushed or like I was going through unnecessary procedures. I am so glad I saw Dr. Batash as my first gastroenterologist and would definitely recommend him to others.

He took the time to listen to my problem and scheduled for a colonoscopy which I wasn't happy about but assured me that everything will be fine and if there was something, they would address it. In the end, everything was fine with a clean bill of health

Dr.Batash was very down to earth. He listened patiently and discussed all the procedures I needed to determine accurately what my problem was. The PA, Caroline, was also very nice. The doctor also had a great sense of humor which putme at ease. The young woman who drew my blood, Maribeth, was so, so, nice and helpful. A true sweetheart. I will be returning to this office and trust they will be able to help me.

Dr. Batash, his Physician Assistant and the medical assistant were very courteous and helpful. Unfortunately, the front desk staff is not as pleasant to interact with. Overall a good experience. My only reccomendation would be to train the secretary to have better manners.

I waited a little over 30 min. Once I was with the doctor he was great! Did a thorough consultation of my background, symptoms and then explained next steps. I felt very comfortable with the process. He took things slow takingone step at a time instead of rushing into drastic treatment methods. The nurse was also great and I really thought she did a great job!

I'm not sure where the negative reviews are coming from for both Dr. Batash and his staff, but they are all totally off base. The minute I came in I was helped right away, and as a first time patient Iassumed I would be waiting for a long time to see the doctor as my information was processed and entered. Boy was I wrong! I was a bit early, so I sat in for what I would assume to be a long, boring wait. In under 45 minutes (which is a record for a doctors visit wait for me in NYC) I was shown to the back and, instead of waiting in the exam room for another interval (pretty standard for every other visit I had), I immediately sat with the doctor in his office to discuss my issue. He sat with me for nearly 20 minutes, going over all of my symptoms and making sure he had the full picture. He then ordered a battery of tests for me and did his exam. Everything I needed was scheduled and confirmed before I left the office. I was shown next door for labs and bloodwork, where again, I was immediately seen and taken care of. The staff made me feel welcomed, not awkward (considering for the issue I had gone in with), and were intensely reassuring, making sure that I understood that they would be with me every step of the process and that I understood everything I needed to do. They were able to confirm that none of this would go wrong despite my changing insurances in the new year. I very much look forward to solving my health issue with Dr. Batash and his staff, and I would emphatically recommend his services to everyone I know.

Horrible bedside manner when it comes to this doctor. His staff do his job for him, only saw me at the end of the "consultation" for less than 3 minutes. When called with my concerns they told me to wait until it's bad then they'll deal with it.
