Patient Comments (2)
Metairie, LA |
Wonderful caring physician! Explained everything thoroughly.
in New Orleans, LA |
I had a friend who had a successful operation under Dr. O-B. I believe her to be conscientious. However, for the sake of anybody considering her I must tell you that I went to see her for hernia repair. While under the knife, she punctured my bladder (or nicked it, as they put it); I had to stay overnight and was catheterized for twelve days. And charged the maximum my insurance would allow me to pay for the experience. I strongly recommend going to Boston or NYC for surgery if possible.
