in Bay Saint Louis, MS |
I completely trust him I had both knees replaced by him this past year and 'm like a new woman! Thanks for your help.
I don't go to Dr's very often. I'm cut from the put some dirt on it and walk it off cloth, so when I go its bad. The lady in the checkout line at the grocery talked to me more than this guy did. I left with no answers as to what's wrong with me or what I need to do or anything. Wasted my time driving in and left still hurting and still not sure if what is wrong. Will be seeking assistance elsewhere. Maybe I can find somebody that will do more than shake my hand and schedule a follow up.
Thank you for this review. We're very sorry about your experience, and we'd like to have someone reach out to you personally. Please email us at connect@ochsner.org with your contact information so we can pass it along.

I was very impressed by Dr. Guevara's professionalism and bedside manner. I would heartily recommend him to anyone looking for a good orhopedic surgeon. Unfortunately, I have been treated by several different orthopedic surgeons, and Dr. Guevara has helped me regain faith in orthopedic surgeons. Thank you for everything Dr. Guevara!
in Mandeville, LA |
I injured my knee last week and was able to see Dr. Guevara quickly. He was polite, professional, and didn't rush out of the room like most doctors tend to do. He took his time to explain to meet what was wrong with my knee. I will definitely go back to him in the future.

Dr. Guevara did my knee replacement in February 2016 and I could not be more pleased. He has a very impressive background and experience. After the surgery, I was up and walking and within a month I felt completely healed. I would highly Dr. Guevara to anyone that is having knee problems. I just wish I would have had it done sooner.

He is a wonderful surgeon. He repaired my son ACL over a year ago. My son was released to play soccer 5 1/2 months after the total reconstruction. He is stronger then ever on the field. Dr Guevera shared his own personal stories with my devastated son. Today my son has decided he will attend College next year with intentions on becoming an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine or Physical therapy....
in Slidell,LA |
He was very quick and unfriendly. He didn't acknowledge any of our concerns in the office or hospital. On discharge day he did not come discharge me, a hopitalist did. He never saw my arm where a had a allergic reaction to the tape it was worse than I had ever seen in my 32 years of being a nurse. I will never go back to him for another surgery. I felt abandoned, he didn't seem to care for me at all from the beginning. I went to him because of his experience and knowledge but was dissapointed.
I am very sorry that you felt that way.
