Review for Dr. Coker

Dr. Toussaint is the best - had 6 spinal infusions and was back on my feet and moving! He took the time to explain the problem and explain my options for treatment. He also did my husbands surgery in 2015 and got him out of a wheelchair. He is a wonderful doctor, surgeon and runs a great practice.

Review for Dr. Toussaint

first visit, but I was well pleased with his level of interest about the problems I am having. I expect more from my second visit an was well pleased with the way Dr. Mayson answered my questions and explain things I had not been told before. So far I am well pleased.

Review for Dr. Mayson

Dr Keisler did a fantastic surgery on my cataracts and I have 20/20 vision without any glasses now. I drove 3 hours back for the procedure after moving because of his reputation. Highly recommend.
