Patient Comments (9)
in Broussard, LA |
I was diagnosed in 1998 with RRMS and the neurologist who diagnosed me was my neurologist for 18 yrs and took extremely good care of me. Imagine me fear when he informed me that this visit will be my husbandl last visit with you Mrs. Thibodeaux, I am closing my practice and moving out of state. He said not to worry he had all my information going to the best neurologist he knew. And that neurologist was Dr. April Erwin and I am so happy he sent me to her. Absolutely satisfied with me care.

DrA was my first dr and I felt like an inconvenience.I hated his treatment.Then Dr Erwin became my dr.She made me feel that my issue was important to her which is such a comfort to me.Ur talking abt my brain.That's scary to us.We never know if something is going to happen it's just a scary thing.She proved to me that I personally am her concern as s does all pts & she cares. She's worth the 31/2 hr drive.Her nurse is caring & has ALWAYS been there my stress breakdown recently BOTH stood by me.

Very articulate and personable. Relates well to patients. Covers all aspects of patient's health and answers all patient concerns. Coordinates with patients others physicians to provide quality care.
in Denham Springs, LA |
Dr. Erwin is very thorough, listens to my concerns and is willing to answer any questions I have about my health and treatment. One can tell that she truly cares about the well being of her patients by her countenance and sweet personality. I would recommend Dr. Erwin to anyone seeking a knowledgeable and professional physician.

I wouldn't even leave 1 star for this woman. She is not worried about the well being of her patients. She was beyond rude. She Told me if I didn't like it here to go somewhere else. She wouldn't listen to the concerns I had as a patient under her guidance.

One appointment sleep study CPAP machine took 12 weeks. I tried to reschedule my 6 month checkup on May 5th appointment was for June 15th. Was told next available appointment would be in October. RIDICULOUS yeah don't waste your time with Dr Erwin or anyone at the Neuology associates you will probably die before you get an appt. goodbye worthless doctor
in Pineville, LA |
Had high hopes when I met Dr. Erwin. Told me I had enough symptoms to try out a benign treatment Copaxone. I responded which made her think it really was MS. I Avonex and had horrible reactions. Couldn't take LDN with my pain meds. She came in the next appt and said she never thought I had MS (what?) and she had nothing to offer me. Basically dropped me and had my results phoned. Her nurse was horrible and after saying I had a prairie tumor transferred us to medical records allowing no questions
Gonzales, LA |
