Review of Dr. Elkersh

- in Ponchatoula , LA |

I think Dr Elkersh is a very knowledgeable, friendly, understanding, caring doctor. He always listens and understands to provide the right solution to help improve your wellness to make your life better! He is extremely friendly, very knowledgeable I would highly recommend any doctor associated with advance pain institute. Their office is full of friendly people and people who listen and care about the well being of their patients. They treat you like family and your a member of the team!

Review of Dr. Flagg II

-BOGALUSA |

Dr. Flagg refuses to write anything (tramadol) if you test positive for marijuana but will do injections (which causes more problems). Yet these type of pain clinics are the reason we have an opiod problem. Always a long wait and obviously doesn't care about his patients health just the paycheck. Skip this guy and find a doctor that will properly take care of your specific needs.

Review of Dr. Flagg II

- in Covington, LA |

I have seen other pain management doctors, but I've never met a MD like Dr. Flagg exhibits genuine care and concern for his patients. He listens and answers all questions without a problem. He leaves you with the feeling of "life gets better"! I will definitely refer anyone in need of help managing their pain to Dr. Flagg. He is the best!

Review of Dr. Flagg II

- in Mandeville |

I cannot rate my experience with Dr. Flagg anything less than a 5. Going to a doctor when in pain and not sure if they can help is stressful enough as you are looking for relief. Dr. Flagg really puts any unanswered questions at ease. His bedside manner is that of being very caring and compassionate. He treats his patients as if they are family. He is very knowledgeable and makes sure you won't leave the office with any ounce of worry. When it comes to referring to a pain MD, he is top notch.

Review of Dr. Flagg II

- in Magnolia |

Dr. Flagg refused to provide services My second visit, he had discovered an L4 compression fracture and sent me for an MRI that couldn't be done until after this appt. Notified his office they said drive the hour, keep the appointment When Dr. Flagg realized the MRI had not been done he seemed to forget that I was there for help and became angry about milleneals on his staff, wasting time, insurance issues. Left me with an appointment in two weeks nothing for pain feeling like a scolded child.

Review of Dr. Elkersh

- in Hammond, LA |

Dr. Elkersh and his staff always cater to my neck and shoulder pain as well as my migraines. One major reason I choose his practice is the treatment I receive when I am not with him. When I call, I am treated with respect by a human, but even if I have to leave a voice mail, his staff returns my call to help. Melanie always assists with scheduling appointments around my work schedule and when I need a urgent care visit too.
