Review of Dr. Kessels


Dr.Kessels and his staff provide excellent care with thorough explanations about tests and treatment options at every visit. Consistently compassionate and professional...exactly what is needed when dealing with a difficult wound.

Review of Dr. Kessels


After not getting results from several doctors, spent extra time and money to seek out a wound care specialist. His treatment was a total failure other than adding a few small bright scars on my foot from where he scraped the wounds when I was there. He was friendly and spent some time with me but his treatment and subsequent medicines did nothing to resolve these sores (which are with me months after seeing him, now with ugly small scars too). The one star visit got 2 stars due to his nurse.

Review of Dr. Mahoney

- in Slidell, LA |

She holds a GRUDGE for a LONG time. If you're handicap with serious mobility issues & miss an appointment or two out of MANY because of legit reasons, she will BLACKLIST YOU from EVER getting home health services. Even for COMPLETELY UNRELATED ISSUES. HER DIRECT ORDER TO HOME HEALTH TO NEVER ADMIT AS A PATIENT will keep YOU (or whoever her patient is) from receiving home health visits after hospitalizations for YEARS. This type of MALICE is DANGEROUS to a patient's health and continuity of care!

One could only be so lucky to be assigned to Dr. Joyce when admitted to STPH. Professional, intelligent, caring. Top notch physician.

Review of Dr. Joyce

- in Covington La |

Calling this man doctor is an insult to those who actually give a damn about their patients. I was ASSIGNED him at st Tammany parish hospital, I DID fire him from my case. Not straight forward information or diagnostics. Did not look at my past medical history or medications Underwent a fully anesthetic surgery, to remove a large portion of infected tissue from lower back, was not properly returned back to my normal medicinal levels. "Your lumbar history is not my concern" remember Dr Joyce?

Review of Dr. Gonzalez

- in Covington, LA |

Dr.Gonzales, thank you so much for assuming help with my desire to have my wife placed in a hospice facility locally, the Covington area. Prior to your involvement, I was left with the feeling that our wishes for local service were falling on deaf ears. Thank you for whatever you may be able to do on our behalf. Jim & Linda Henrie

Review of Dr. Mahoney

- in Slidell, LA |

If I could leave 0 stars I would. Rude, feels like she knows her patients and does not communicate with nurses, especially patients that are return customers. Brags about her years of practice but ultimately practices dangerously. Would NEVER recommend to anyone!
