From excruciating pain to normal life I was treated extremely well and Dr. Batson performed tests and analysis to find the source of my problem and resolve it to where I no longer take any medication for relief.
Dr. John Batson is INCREDIBLE at treating pain management!!! Over the past several years when I have pinched nerves in my spine, he has located through local xrays and an MRI only when needed exactly where the pain was created and then treated it with injection PERFECTLY each of the three times it has happened!!!!!!! After my most current treatment this past week I had amazing relief in less than 24 hours and following his instructions on things to do or avoid doing after treatment really are correct, too, and sooooo helpful! He always follows up in all appropriate ways to make sure things are the best they can be and he helps us avoid wasting time and risk of failure on unnecessary surgery! If he feels surgery is needed, he also would honestly recommend it. He is so brilliant, so skilled, and so ethical that you couldn't be in better hands for relief from pain, learning what is causing it, and doing physically what is needed to help prevent future problems when possible! He's excellent at pain management for the spine and all other parts of the body which can be treated for pain created by sports or just your regular activities!!!!! We are sooooo fortunate that he practices in our part of the Low Country!!!
For some time I had been waking up with numbness in both my arms and went to see Dr. Batson to help with this. I did PT for a while and returned for a follow up to see the progress. I didn't have as much progress as Dr. Batson would have liked with PT so he suggested an injection to my shoulder. I agreed and it was scheduled for the next week. I was a little nervous for the injection, but Dr. Batson put me at ease. The time of the injection was less than 15 minutes from arrival to departure. I woke up the next morning with no numbness in either arm. I would recommend Dr. Batson to anyone in pain.
I have had a great experience with Dr. Batson. He gave me injections in my lower back, and I feel amazing! Thanks
I don't know why I didn't see him sooner! So many months went by with annoying hip, groin and lower back pain...and in just 1/2 hour, with a couple of injections, I am now pain-free...I am so grateful... What a great doctor! Thank you, Dr. Batson, you're amazing!
I highly recommend Dr. John Batson as I have been a patient of his for many years. He and his staff are always so nice and courteous and I feel that I am being genuinely cared for and listen to when ever I have come in. His evaluation and treatment has always been thorough and by far the most accurate diagnosis of any Doctor I have been to.
I received excellent care. He and his staff was very professional and caring.
Dr. Batson is the greatest. I have gone to him over the last 2 years and had a great relationship with him. He is very kind, and understanding really listens to you. I just recently had a lumbar epidural, with a 95 percent improvement in less than 24 hours. The procedure was painless, and done with great care. I would highly recommend Dr. Batson to anyone who is in pain and wants a caring and understanding Doctor who you can trust.
On 2 occassions I have had back issues and both times Dr Batson was able to solve my problems with directed injections as opposed to surgery. He has taken excellent care of me and I am thankful that I was referred to him.
Great visit! Doctor Batson, Audrey and the entire staff were excellent!
Following the prescribed MRI, several problems were revealed and reviewed. The suggested steroid injection into the diagnosed problem area has relieved 90% of the pain and made walking and exercise enjoyable again! Thank you very much.
We have been treated by Dr. Batson over the past several years. We think he is the best pain management doctor. Recently we moved from the area and I was worried about who would take care of us in our new area. Dr. Batson offered to set us up with a practice. We returned to SC for a visit and I scheduled a visit with him. He saw me within 3 days, set up my treatment and I am pain free. My husband also is doing well. We appreciate the office staff as they make it all happen.
After seeing 4 other physicians for an ankle injury that would not heal, having had 3 sets of x-Rays and an MRI, Dr. Batson was the first and only who actually touched my ankle to examine it. He took the time to listen to my complaints, developed a plan of action and we're following it. His staff was very pleasant and accommodating when it came to arrange appointments, and welcoming at arrival. I'd recommend him in a heartbeat.
Patient, kind, understanding and persevering. Has had dramatic positive impact on back pain.
Dr. Batson was able to eliminate pain in my back that I had for months and then a new one after a fall, to my shoulder. He did this non surgically and I was able to avoid scheduled surgery thanks to his care. He is a very caring doctor and I am grateful that he was able to help me.
I feel very fortunate to have found such a great doctor when we retired to this area. Dr. Batson truly is concerned about helping his patients. He cares and it's quite evident. His staff is very friendly and helpful. I have highly recommended Dr. Batson to several people including my husband. Each person has been very satisfied with the care he has given them. Thanks, Dr. Batson!!!
Dr.Batson and his staff are wonderful!!!!!Everyone treats you like family.I call Dr.Batson my body mechanic,he keeps me going.I have been seeing him for 5 yrs.now.Wouldn't ever THINK about seeing another Dr.He even call my home to see how I am doing.I get shots in my back and neck.He makes it painless.Anyone with pain that does not require surgery,he is the man to see.His staff will treat you like they have known you all their lives.The best!!!!!!!
I, like so many other Americans. suffer from low back pain, that gets worse when sitting, especially in a car. I've talked with other physicians who didn't seem to take my complaint seriously. I was told to stretch more or put a pillow behind my back, none of which helped. I FINALLY found a Doctor who not only took my complaint seriously but actually DID something about it. In spite of my health history, which does not allow some diagnostic tests to be run, Dr. Batson worked with the information he could get and developed a treatment plan that is working. I couldn't be happier. I would definitely recommend Dr. Batson to anyone experiencing a sports injury or back pain. Don't let anyone tell you that you just have to "deal with it".
THE BESY DOCTOR, WITH PROFESSIONL STAFF AND HIGH QUALITY CLINICAL EQUIPMENTS.
Dr. Batson has been treating me for a chronic, but inoperable, arthritic condition of the neck for about 8 years. He and his staff have provided consistently professional medical care as well as courteous and prompt attention to my needs. Dr. Batson continuously searches for any new, potentially helpful treatments for my condition. He is a listener who patiently offers time and attention toward my problems. I highly recommend Dr. Batson and his practice to anyone in need of pain management care. David H. Thomas, Hilton Head, SC
My wife and I have experienced significant health issues over the past several years, including extensive back problems. Dr. Batson was the person we turned to for pain treatment, advice and referrals. He is caring, knowledgeable and always there when we needed him. He is by far the most supportive doctor that we have ever had. His treatments have enable us to continue to enjoy life in spite of medical setbacks. I would encourage anyone to seek out Dr. Batson for pain management treatments and therapy or advice.
For years I had seen many doctors , however, they never listened or took the time to help ease my back pain. After meeting doctor Batson he quickly started trying solutions to help with my back. Every time I was there he listened and after my first injection he even called himself on a Saturday to check up. I can proudly say my back is better. There are things in my life I can do now without pain. I could go on and on about how great doctor Batson is and all of his staff, but in short, I am grateful to have met him and recommend him to everyone.
I was dealing with the worst pain ever!!! Carpal Tunnel! The pain was unbearable! Burning, Numbness, Tingling, the works. I went to the chiropractor, rested it, etc. However, nothing helped until I came in to see Dr. Batson! He sent me for an MRI, ASAP, as I was in so much pain, and treated me with a Carpal Tunnel Steroid injection. Since then I feel GREAT! All my symptoms are gone! The girls there are so sweet, very attentive, informative and professional! Dr Batson is the best Specialist out there!!
I've been seeing Dr Batson for almost three years now. I've suffered with back pain for more than twenty years. Dr Batson is the ONLY doctor that didn't treat my pain as if it were in my head or part of "aging". He is very compassionate and caring and took the time to not only treat my symptoms, but educate me on preventive care and exercise. I have found his staff to be very professional, compassionate and empathetic as well.
Surgeon told me I "had" to have spine surgery. I got a second opinion with Dr. Batson. I have had 2 spinal injections and I am doing great. Now doing my physical therapy without pain! Great staff and caring doctor.
I'm an over 50 active individual. I have lots of aches and pains. He is the only board certified sports AND pain doctor in the state. It is a perfect fit for me! Great staff. Very nice office. No problem getting in when you need him! On top of that he calls to check up on me after any procedure. Top notch.
My first visit to the office, I waited over an hour only to be seen by Dr.Batson for 5 minutes. Many follow-up 5 minute appointments later, I finally got my treatment. I went in for a radio frequency ablacision for my SI joint, after have 4-level back surgery, and was quite nervous. I asked his nurse to explain the procedure, she shrugged and suggested I ask Dr. Batson's PA. I asked his PA, who laughed at me for asking, and changed the subject. Then when testing my nerves, I felt it in my foot EVERY TIME. Dr. Batson said that was impossible. Just like that. He went ahead with the procedure, assuming he was in the right spot disregarding my feelings in my foot. After he was done, he literally just walked out of the room. I had to call him back in and pry information from him about my post-procedure care. I still don't know what I should be expecting pain-wise, or what activities I should be withholding from. He is narcissistic, condescending, and will not give you the time of day. He knows how to be like able when he needs to, otherwise I really think he's just about getting money from your insurance. I had to drive an hour to visit his office 4 times (after being referred there from my other doctor for the procedure), before even getting it done. I will not be recommending him to ANYONE! If you have a choice, stay away!
5 star rating!!!
Dr. Batson has an excellent and caring staff from the front desk to the nurses in the back. The facility is clean and modern. He has a calming and pleasant bedside manner. He takes time to listen to my problems and examine me. His procedure skills are top notch. My primary care doctor said "he is the best, you got to see him" and I agree!
this so called doctor,is very uncaring,think he's god\ will not listen to the people he sees,his morles are only about the money,his conduct is misleading,to the attention of those whom are sent by the insurance company or self be aware,of this demon,this doctor will cross you...nothing he does stipulate as is...do not trust him in no way...he a sellout and a liar.to all beware of this conartist,forsure he is a joke indeed;you shall see for yourself,beadvised...may god be with you...
No more PAIN!!!!! I must say, I have to be the worse patient in the world, Dr. Batson and his complete staff took the time to extremely pamper me and contribute their time to me and my situation. Now I am without pain and able to run around with my now 6 year old son without hesitation. Thumbs up everyone, Dr. Batson, spoke with me and not at me, he is a MUST SEE if you have any PAIN or any other situation he can accompany you with.
Helped my husband walk and improved his quality of life.
Dr Batson was the first doctor I've seen that took the time to listen to all of my complaints without rushing out to the next patient. His staff was very attentive and made me feel cared about. I'm happy to say that my back is pain free after years of feeling like it would never get better. I'm so glad I didn't have to have surgery.
