Review of Wendy Peterson


She did not thoroughly review my file which caused her to miss what should have been an easy diagnosis. She ordered unnecessary and expensive tests. Never again!

Review of Dr. Dalmau

-Kenner, LA |

I had a horrible experience at this hospital (Ochsner Kenner) with the doctors as well as all of the nurses. Dr. Dalmau had absolutely no bed side manner. She was so unfriendly, and did not make me feel comfortable or confident about her doing my procedure. The nurse who put my IV in blew my vein, and was too nervous to try it again. The other nurse was rude and condescending. They also completely messed up my appointment, and I had to reschedule. I will NEVER go back to this hospital.

Review of Wendy Peterson

- in panama city beach |

I can never repay FNP Wendy Peterson for the support and help she has given me. I fell ill in 2011 and no doctors could diagnose what i was dealing with. I went to Mayo a few times but also no diagnosis could be given. I was told every time that there was nothing wrong with me. Wendy Peterson and her staff along with Dr. Damou, found that i have a rare gastric disease. They gave me an answer when everyone else for 8 years could not. Wendy and Dr. Damou gave me new hope in life.

Review of Dr. Fitton

- in Luling, LA |

This guy is AMAZING! I had a routine procedure scheduled with him. He has a warm and friendly bedside manner and speaks in understandable language. Other doctors could take lessons from him for kindness and friendliness. Of course, I'm glad that I don't have to see him on a routine basis, but come the day that I would have to, I would not hesitate to trust him with my well being. Thanks!

Review of Dr. Fitton

- in Houma, La |

I had an emergency situation where food was lodged in my throat. Dr. Fitton and his staff came to my rescue basically saving my life. He was very knowledgeable and knew what he had to do to protect my "wind pipe" from getting any food particles in it while he retrieved the piece of steak meat I had lodged in my esopagus. I would recommend Dr. Fitton for any emergency procedure that would be needed as for as needing a great GI doctor. Hat's off to you, and thank you for saving me.

Review of Dr. Fitton

- in Metairie, LA |

I went to Dr. Fitton for the 1st time today. His personality was caring of that of which one would expect an MD to offer. He is charismatic and not once did he rush the appt. He listened without interrupting me; letting me explain my symptoms. His recommendations were precise and to the point. He gave confidents that he could help. He asked if I had questions. Overall, it was a most enjoyable visit. I felt like he really cared about me as a patient. I am very pleased with my experience.

Review of Dr. Fitton

- in Memphis, TN |

I would recommend Doctor Fitton to everyone, he takes his time, makes the time to make you feel comfortable, he's very knowledgeable, he answers all your questions he's also very comical which relaxes you even more. He's very easy to talk with, my only thing is he moved away from Memphis. He's the best Gastro Doctor in the world in my eyes! We miss you Dr. Fitton. God bless you & thank you for taking such good care of your patients here in Memphis, Tennessee. Sincerely, Kathy Herbert

Review of Dr. Maddox

- in Garyville, LA |

Dr. Maddox has the best bedside manners. She was very informative and she made sure I knew every step she was taking. She left a clean site and I have very minimal scarring. I would recommend her to anyone because I think she shows that Oschner Cares!
