My family and I have been using Dr. Achee for about 4 years now, and he is by far the best family doctor we have ever had. He has went above and beyond for all of us, especially my husband, who has a rare pain disease.

I had started my cancer journey at MD Anderson but due to insurance issues, I was no longer able to continue my treatments there. I was referred to Dr. Ellington and so thankful! She has been amazing. I find comfort in the fact I'm not a large facility and that I'm more than a medical ID #.

Review for Dr. Amanda Ellington, MD

0 stars! This guy should not be a doctor. He is so rude and doesnt care at all. Hope he looses his job.

Review for Dr. Cole Hillebrandt, MD

My experience was horrible... very condescending and rude . I was asking questions and he rudely said “ let me finish!” Wasn’t a warm feeling at all and his bedside manner is ZERO. My father was a doctor who truely cared for his patients... this was absolutely ridiculous.

Review for Dr. Cole Hillebrandt, MD

She’s so sweet and a good dr. But she sees you quick , I guess since she has a lot of patients. She doesn’t stay in the room long at all.

Great teacher to the medical student doing a family Practice rotation in his office.

Review for Dr. Christopher Achee, MD

Zero bedside manner for a serious situation. Absolutely rude and talks to you as if you are an idiot. Would NEVER see him on an “at option” basis. Worst doctor I’ve ever seen.

Horrible rude man. Should not be practicing medicine! He is incompetent and Messed up on a procedure that should have been so simple. Had to see another doctor to fix his mistake!

Lafayette, LA - Nov 02 2018

Review for Dr. Michael Melanson, MD

Horrible! Rude, degrading, mentally abusive. Physically scarred me during biopsy causing burns on my skin from silver nitrate usage. Did not stitch me up as I was told by follow up doctor should have been done. Do not put your health at risk!

Review for Dr. Bahman Sabbaghian, MD

Don't see him if you have IC: does not follow diagnostic guidelines, respect an already established diagnosis, or patient wishes. The nurses on the other hand are very nice.

Dr. J saved my life. He performed a TURP, in which a tumor was removed that no other Urologist would touch. Since the procedure, my quality of life has returned and I cannot thank him enough.

Review for Dr. Amanda Lacomb, MD

My parents have been seeing Dr Depuy for years and they are still living, after all, that is the goal. He has done a great job. His team is always friendly and helpful. Sometimes I have trouble understanding his accent, but he is very patient and explains everything until I do understand.

He told me I was going to miscarry at 3 weeks because my hormone levels weren’t high enough. Who tells a patient that in early pregnancy?! Also very rude.

Review for Dr. Michael Melanson, MD

Dr. Ellington is a wonderful addition to Memorial Hospital. She performed surgery on me shortly after she started at memorial. She is very professional, explains everything clearly and is compassionate, which is kind of rare with Dr's now. She also has a good support staff.

He doesn't seem to listen to his patients problems. They know there bodies more than he does. He can be short with his patients and seems to get you out of the room so he can see the next patient ????
