Patient Comments (1)
in New Orleans, LA |
He has a great rapport with patients and goes beyond the standard requirements to make sure they are taken care of. He once scheduled me for a procedure with a different specialist at 6:30 a.m. and showed up before the specialist to make sure everything went well. He has called me at home to check on me. He has worked me in when i didn't have an appointment. He is a great doctor.
