Exceptional. This man took time to explain everything thoroughly. His knowledge and expertise as a pediatric Cardiologist is by far the best we have seen.

Would not recommend. Terrible bedside manners. Made me feel shamed after contracting an STI from a boyfriend who was cheating on me. Should keep religious views and biases OUTSIDE of her practice.

Review for Dr. Christopher Fontenot, MD

Dr Joseph is very knowledgeable, friendly, and makes you feel like you and your health are very important to her. She thoroughly discusses your allergies and treatment plan, precautions, and what to do if you have a reaction.

All three of my boys see Dr. Fruge. He has always been very professional yet friendly when we visit. Even my younger children feel comfortable going to his office. It means a lot for the staff to take extra time to make them feel comfortable.

Review for Dr. Bernard Fruge Jr, MD

I often list Dr. Fruge as my primary care physician because he has taken such excellent care of me over the last thirteen years. He is kind, proffessional, thorough and thoughful and often catches things other doctors miss. I am fortunate to have him as my doctor.

Review for Dr. Bernard Fruge Jr, MD

I have been going to Dr Fruge since I was a child. I trust him implicitly. He has allowed me to function in life, otherwise I would be living in a bubble due to all my allergies!

Review for Dr. Durga Naidu, MD

I absolutely love Dr. Gautam but don’t ever try to call her office. YOU WILL NEVER GET MORE THAN A RECORDING AND NEVER A RETURN CALL. Find an office that actually answers their phone and/or returns calls.

DR. RUIZ REFORMED TWO ANGIOGRAMS ON BOTH LEGS. THE FIRST HE TOLD ME THAT I HAD GOOD BLOOD FLOW IN BOTH LEGS. THE SECOND, HE TOLD ME THE RIGHT SIDE WAS COMPLETELY BLOCKED AS WAS THE BYPASS ON THE LEFT SIDE. ALL HE WANTED WAS RETURN VISITS TO HIS OFFICE. FAKE DOCTOR !!

Dr Weir is an extremely smart and caring doctor. It is quite obvious that his primary motivation is to heal, and he stays focused on that objective throughout all his processes. One of the best doctors I have had the pleasure of knowing.

Dr Piccione has been seeing my children for at least 10 years. He successfully performed a surgery on one of my children at a year old. Her eyes are still perfect. We see Dr Piccione for regular checkups for all four of my children. The office staff is always efficient and courteous.

Walked in my room and didn't even say hello, went straight to so I hear you don't want to do allergy shots? Well that's rude and needless to say, did not go back! Would not recommend to anyone! Found another ENT who is a true doctor that cares about my health and values my choice.
