Ratings for Dr. Neeti Bathia
Dr. Bathia has changed my life. 10 years ago I fractured my back and I've had pain ever since. I've been to a half dozen doctors and none have been able to help. She took an all-encompassing look at everything going on in my back, found that I have arthritis and walked me through the different treatment options—from simple to extreme. She used a fake spine to show me why I was having the pain I was having. As I described each scenario in which I had pain, she adjusted the spine to show me what would be happening in my joints and why, with arthritis, it would hurt. After hearing treatment options, I settled on cortisone shots. Dr. Bathia talked me through every step of it (I was very anxious). After talking with her and asking about a million questions, all of which she patiently answered, I knew exactly what to expect and the procedure went seamlessly. The procedure center was amazing—everyone was so kind and make sure I was prepared. After 10 years of pain, I never thought I'd feel this good. She's amazing, and no matter where I move in my life, I will travel to see her. I've lived in New Jersey and D.C. and haven't found anyone this thorough, thoughtful and efficient.
Dr. Bathia has been my orthopedic doctor for over two years. She is an outstanding physician, she listens, and she is extremely competent. As far as the LESI injections, she explains what she is going to do. She has helped me tremendously and now I am going to Physical Therapy and Aqua Therapy.
Dr. Bathia is a wonderful person and a top notch doctor. She took the time to listen and understand what was happening with my back, not only the pain level, but how it was impacting my life. She recommended injection in order to reduce the inflammation so physical therapy and other treatments would have the opportunity to work and reduce my 2 bulging discs. She has been extremely thorough, patient and always ready to listen and help. At one point I had a set back, my own faulty - - she was only understanding, no criticism, but just answers for how to get me back on the healing path. Her staff reflects her spirit and personality. I recommend friends to her with out hesitation
Dr. Neeti is fantastic and all you could want from a spine/sports doc! She's extremely knowledgeable and takes the time to really listen to your problems before jumping in with her diagnosis. She graduated from top medical and residency programs, but yet she is still extremely humble and down-to-earth when dealing with patients. She came up with real solutions for my long-term back pain that do not rely on surgery. I'll be referring people with back pain or sports injuries to her going forward.
Dr. Bathia is incompetent. She was to perform an epidural injection to relieve back pain. She only added to that pain. I was placed face down on the table, a needle jabbed into the incorrect location causing paroxysm of pain. She had to immediately stop the procedure and withdraw the needle. She still has the nerve to charge my insurance $5000 plus expects me to pay $880 out of pocket for the pain and suffering she inflicted on me. Stay as far away from this woman as possible. She does not know what she is doing.
