I would give NO stars if could! Upon being pulled from work field after disabling accident, 2 spine surgeries prior not having healed properly 100%, etc I wound up on a policy on Medicare that ONLY Ochsner LSU took for specialists in my area. Appointment was over before even finished filling out new patient paperwork. She said was a year followup; I didn't remember her before so apparently didn't make adequate impression first time. New pat paperwork, etc I heard "You spine is deteriorating & nothing I can do". I replied neurosurgeon that did SX said spine had to be monitored. She replied "Then I suggest you return to him". I stated "he didn't take my current ins plan". She asked "what do you want from me"? I replied "an image of some sort to let me know what current condition spine is in (last check was early 2017)". She walked out the door. SADDEST PART, she was being "shadowed" as in training the future of their health "care" system. Took that 100% insurance payment though!

I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone. I went in to see her after 3 doctors referred me to see a neurosurgeon after being in a motor vehicle accident. 3 doctors told me that I have several bulging and ruptured discs in my back and that I have a fracture in my back. I went to see her and her physicians assistant came in and asked some questions and 1 of the questions was if I had an attorney involved in the accident case and when they found out that there was an attorney involved, they wanted nothing to do with me. It's a damn shame that they wanted nothing to do with me and that I have to sit here and fight with the pain until I can see another neurosurgeon for a second opinion. The doctor spent less than 2 minutes in the room with me and didn't do anything. When she walked in the room, the door hadn't even closed all the way yet and she was claiming nothing is wrong with me without even examining me but yet I can barely walk. The doctor and staff was very rude.

She preformed Brain surgery on my 13 year old nephew to remove a 2 CM mass and did such a wonderful job. He hasn't experienced any pain in the area of the surgery at all and she and the others that where responsible for his care where amazing and talked in terms that he could understand and ease his mind. Thank you for taking such good care of him during his stay and may God Bless you and guide you in your other surgery cases.
