Committed To You
I have been in private practice for over 10 years in the lowcountry. I provide nonsurgical spine and sports medicine care in a safe and compassionate environment. I have performed literally thousands of spine and sports medicine procedures medically proven and effective for pain. If you are in pain I will make every effort to provide prompt medical care. I will listen to your concerns and take time to examine you. I will order medical tests only when necessary to diagnose your problem. I will perform procedures only when medically necessary to treat your pain. I will personally call and check on you if I performed a procedure for your pain. Above and beyond typical care and medical practice. That is what I promise to you.
Dr. Batson is married to Alice, has a daughter Jordan, and two dogs Snoop Dogg and Dolly. He literally “grew up” on the water as a competitive windsurfer and remains an avid water sports enthusiast. His interests include overall fitness, windsurfing, kiteboarding, and stand up paddleboarding.
