Patient Comments (1)

in Houma, LA |
Very knowledgeable,kind, compassionate, and personable, and easy to approach. She makes you feel like you are a patient and your concern about your problem is her concern also. I have seen many Doctors in my days and they "rush" you in and out, but not this Doctor, she sits you down, talks TO you...more
