About Oscar A. Batista, M.D.

“I chose gastroenterology because it is one of the few medical subspecialties that provide the opportunity to treat complex patients as well as perform highly technical procedures, which I find to be personally challenging and rewarding. I enjoy being able to improve the quality of life for patients with debilitating conditions as well as being able to offer minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic alternatives to surgery.

“My approach to patient care is collaborative. I believe it is important to actively engage patients in order to choose the most appropriate treatment plan, while working closely with primary-care physicians, surgeons and other members of the healthcare team to ensure the best care.

“I believe in taking time to listen to patients, then clearly present diagnostic and treatment options based on my medical knowledge and expertise, while respecting the patient’s wishes. My goal is to help patients achieve the best possible outcomes.”

In his free time, Dr. Batista enjoys outdoor activities with his family, which is why he considers Utah such a great place to live. He has been a runner most of his life and has completed eight marathons. He enjoys skiing, kayaking, mountain biking, fly-fishing and scuba diving.

Reviews

I have been a patient of Dr. Batista for over ten years and have always found his staff to be extremely professional and accommodating. He doesn’t waste words but does take the time to make sure I understand his procedures, diagnosis and on going care completely. I trust his abilities implicitly and recommend him without hesitation.

Dr. Batista and his staff were extremely kind, patient and personable. He is a very knowledgeable doctor and took the time to explain everything very thoroughly and answer every question I had. I have been stressing about my health issues and it was quite comforting to finally find some answers.

I would walk through fire for this guy. He has such skill and had helped my daughter with her PSC. Yes. See him.

Very good experience. Especially appreciate the clarity and completeness of the Dr. Batista's explanation. The nurse who attended and the nurse who got me ready were fantastic!
