About Me:

Dr. Batiuk joined Legacy Health in 2004. He received his medical degree from the University of Alberta in 1985. Next, he completed his Internal Medicine Residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, followed by a Nephrology Fellowship in 1988-1990. Dr. Batiuk's Transplant Medicine Fellowship was completed at Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland. He then returned to the University of Alberta where he received his PhD in 1996. Prior to joining Legacy Transplant, he was an Associate Professor of Medicine at the Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI) School of Medicine. While in Indianapolis, he ran a research laboratory studying the effects of immunosuppressant drugs, participated in the kidney, pancreas and liver transplant programs and was Chief of Nephrology at the Roudebush VA Medical Center. He has published numerous scientific papers involving both basic science and applied clinical aspects of immunosuppression and transplantation.

Patient Rating

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

All of the providers in this clinic are excellent, especially Dr. Batiuk. They all balance a medical expertise, active listening, and interpersonal relationship skills very well.

None. Dr. was very pleasant, relaxed, informative and obviously not in a hurry. Answered all of our questions and then some. Look forward to working with Dr.

The lab is woefully understaffed, overworked, exasperated and the procedures they are mandated to follow are confusing and in my opinion poorly thought out. Excess and overbearing bureaucracy! I waited 40 minutes for a simple blood test!

The Provider, and his staff, were welcoming, friendly, thorough in explaining things. By explaining processes and procedures so well, and by caring about us, they made us feel safe and comfortable. The Provider and staff genuinely care for their patients, and patients family.

Dr. Batiuk and the entire Legacy transplant team are world class. The entire experience was A+++. Deep expertise, deep and holistic care and compassion, not just concerned about me but also asked about my wife...I wish I could have that care experience everywhere else I get care.

I always feel like I'm part of a family when I visit the Legacy Transplant Team. Everyone, from the receptionist to the Doctors, treats you like you are a member of their family and they all work hard to meet all your medical needs with respect and compassion. I am truly blessed that I received my transplant from Legacy Transplant Team.

The only dissapointment that I had was that the nurse kept looking at her watch as if she needed to be some place else. she had a timer set and u could tell she had a tight schdule so I didn't feel at ease to ask questions or take my time reviewing everything. otherwise it was a very perfessional invirinment. The office was well kept, everyone was friendly and very helpful. I felt that the Dr and social worker really cared about my wellness.
