He diagnosed my fibro/arthritis, gave me treatments to help them and is quite knowledgeable with up to the date medication/care given.. Excellent treatment.. Highly recommend..
in Hammond, LA |
Dr. Gauthier has done a great job of correctly diagnosing me after being misdiagnosed by another rheumatologist. His proactive treatment has stopped my osteoporosis from progressing and has helped my osteoarthritis to improve. I am no longer on a biologic med which I should not have been on in the first place. I am so thankful that he came to Hammond and I switched to his services!
in Independence, LA |
I found Dr. Gauthier to be very cold and uncaring. I don't need warm and fuzzy but I do need respect and compassion. Rheumatoid arthritis is a bewildering disease and all I ever got in response to my questions was well you have arthritis. When I asked about something to relieve the pain on occasions I was given a lecture on how he was not there to rid me of my pain. He also did not advise me to get an eye exam when prescribing a very common medicine used to treat RA-MY pharmacist did that.

Dr. Gauthier was able to diagnose something with me that I had been trying for six years to get diagnosed or somebody that could tell me what it wise. He did he's tops in my book
Dr Gauthier has a lack of education and knowledge with rheumatoid diseases and autoimmune disorders. For 3 years I was a trial with random treatments and a different diagnosis every visit.
