Patient Comments (7)
in Metairie, LA |
I've had two bone fusion surgeries in the past, and my previous doctor has since retired. One of the rods in my back broke. After seeing two other doctors that never once looked at my back or checked anything other than an x-ray, a friend recommended Dr. Dumont. He has exceeded my expectations in every way. He is very humble and it's shocking how he does things most doctors would have a nurse do. He always put the patient first. Everything you'd want in a Doctor. I would recommend him to anyone!
New Orleans, LA |
Excellent Neurosurgeon. He did a spinal fusion on me, including several segments, which turned out beautifully. At 8 weeks post op, I am feeling great and am starting physical therapy, which is normal. He is a very kind person who explains everything that you need to know in terms you can understand.
in New York, NY |
I would really like to say that I would recommend Dr. Dumont to friends or fellow service members, but, since it was impossible to get an appointment with his office I never got to see him. I was referred to his office 3 Aug 2016, it is now 29 Sep 2016 and I still can't get an appointment. I have called his office on numerous occasions and have even had my military medical office call. The only response that I ever received was "the scheduling office will call you to make an appointment".
in Reading, PA |
Four years ago I had a dangerous bi-lobed brain aneurysm that was at risk of rupturing. Through the grace of God, I was referred to Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia where I was introduced to Dr. Dumont. He clipped the aneurysm and saved my life . I am sure if he had not performed the surgery when he did, I would not be here. Since then I have been able to participate in my son's wedding and the welcoming of my first grandchild. He is amazing and I would strongly recommend him to anyone.
in New Orleans, LA |
I had put off back surgery for many years. Finally I had no choice and was referred to Dr.Dumont.He recommended non surgical treatment as surgery as last resort. He eventually did the surgery and I recovered just as expected. His demeanor , knowledge and down to earth approach is only exceeded by his surgical skill. I would have no hesitancy recommending my family and friends to Dr. DUMONT...in fact I have.
in Woodmere, LA |
Dr. Dumont makes it very easy to speak with him. And he speaks English to the patient not Doctor-ese. I felt extremely careful from our very first meeting.
in River ridge, LA |
Dr. Dumont saved my daughters life. He removed a tumor from her spinal cord. Our experience with him and his team was awesome. Everyone treated our girl with great care.
