He is nice and probably knows his stuff but unless you have all day to wait around to see him. I waited an hour and a half to see him. I will probably not see him again because the wait is unreasonable.

Review for Dr. Michael Acurio, MD

He quickly diagnosed my problem, explained the nature of the problem and its cause, treated me with a steroid injection. Gave me a lucid handout as well. I would definitely recommend him to others with hand problems. I am a physician myself and appreciated his professional attitude.

Review for Dr. Ellis Cooper III, MD

I highly recommend Dr Nunley for your spinal condition. Extremely knowledgeable and caring for his patient. Strongly believes in alternative care but will not put patient through any treatment that he feels ( or knows) will only delay the inevitable

Review for Dr. Charles Lobrano III, MD

Dr. Atchison is a wonderful surgeon. He did my total knee replacement in 2012 and did an amazing job! I highly recommended him. He was very informative and listened to me. A rare find in today's world. I can't thank him enough for my new life because of him.

Review for Dr. Matthew Mosura, MD

Dude nailed my problem right off the bat, but I didn't want to follow his advice. A year later and I'm back with the same problem. This time I allowed him to slice and dice like a gourmet chef. So far all good.

in LA - Aug 14 2018

Review for Dr. Ellis Cooper III, MD

After going with my sister today, I would never recommend him. He was curt, rude, uncaring and bordering on disrespectful and didn’t read her records or want to spend time. We will go to Dallas, as we should have done from the beginning.

in Shreveport, LA - Aug 09 2018

Review for Dr. Philip Utter, MD

I had to have a major spinal fusion l4-s1 and I am 8 weeks out now. Have hit a few bumps here and there but over all dr nunely did an amazing job and I would definitely recommend him!

Jul 08 2018

Review for Dr. Pierce Nunley, MD

Not a very helpful doctor. If you have had pain for weeks don’t go to him, because he will make you feel stupid and acts like you don’t know your own body. He will laugh at you like he doesn’t believe you. Or as if you’re a joke to him. It’s truly sad to see what our healthcare has become.

Dr Lillich is an excellent doctor! I wouldn’t go to any other doctor for feet or ankle issues. He is just the best!!!!!!!!!

Review for Dr. Ellis Cooper III, MD

Dr Acurio performed a total knee replacement on my right knee and is about to do my left. Totally professional, knowledgeable, good bedside manner and is a fantastic surgeon. When it comes to orthopedics, I'll never use anyone else and highly recommend him to you

in Rayville, LA - Mar 06 2018

Review for Dr. Michael Acurio, MD

I’ve seen Dr. Mosura for several chronic neck pain procedures (epidural steroid injection and selective nerve root block). He’s got a great bedside manner and he’s consistent every time I see him. I would definitely recommend him.

Feb 23 2018

Review for Dr. Matthew Mosura, MD

Dr. Mosura has been great. I show up 10 minutes before my appointment and have never had to wait past my appointment time. I get great care and advice. I have been to many doctors concerning my lower back and he and his staff have done great by me.

Dr. Irion is a wonderful doctor. He takes his time with you, answers questions you have and most importantly HE DID NOT HURT ME when giving me my knee shots. I used to see Dr David Wadell but he retired. His shots hurt me bad!! I’m so thankful for Dr Irion. He is an awesome caring doctor.

He is a surgeon that has you think it through and talks with you before surgery . He wants you to be confident in your decision.He is not out to get your money . There is no relation with our name .
