I had a great experience with Dr. Hebert & his staff. Everyone was so friendly. He knew my diagnosis before he looked at my x-rays. I would definitely recommend family and friend's!!
Thank you Dani! Dr Hebert and his staff are wonderful! We appreciate your review!
Very non caring. After painful exam, left me vomiting in wheelchair by myself in parking lot. Did not rewrap injury. Sent home w broken foot w two week follow up. Did not offer assistive walking devices, wraps, boot, etc. or homecare instructions in interim. Did not answer or ask questions clearly. No regard for my current condition or state of mind. Implied drug seeking (adamantly deny). Tone short, curt, condescending, impatient. Do not recommend.

Dr. Hebert reconstructed my ankle after it shattered due to a failed ladder accident. His personal attendance to me and his surgical skills were EXCELLENT!!! He saved my LIFE!!!!!!
in Scott, LA |
I saw Dr Hebert when he was at the old building near LGMC. I saw him 4 times, he never remembered who I was when I saw he did record each visit as I was leaving. Each time i went, he would ask me what I was there for that visit. I would just look at. So, I started having my husband come with me. I have never felt so uncared for as I did with him. He did the surgery and I went back for the first visit. They took the stitches out of my toes. As I was leaving I fell on their ramp. He did nothin
in Maurice, LA |
He may be an excellent surgeon, but both my daughter and I did not see a doctor who truly cares about his patient. We went to him for a second opinion because the first doctor said surgery. His office took x-rays when we got there, but he never even discussed the x-rays with us. When I asked about what the first doctor said, he quickly dismissed me and said he wasn't worried about that. He had a hand on the door knob while I was still trying to ask questions of him.
