Patient Comments (5)
Covington, LA |
He was very nice and respectful. His staff was awesome. He was a little rushed but overall? good.
Metairie, LA |
Spent maybe 10 minutes with me after waiting in the treatment room for over an hour with zero updates from his staff until I peeked my head out of the door to ask. He didn't really listen to me and was setting me up for a surgical procedure without telling me any real knowledge or giving me the opportunity to ask questions. He seemed rushed and just wanting to get to his next appointment. It would have been nice to be treated like a cared for patient and not a pay day.
Blows off patients who are difficult. Keeps telling patients that surgery is soon only to postpone for over three months.

I had two bad discs in my neck with severe arm pain and weakness. Others had recommended a 2 level fusion of my spine but Dr. Bui was able to perform an artificial disc replacement as an outpatient. All of my symptoms are gone and I have been able to maintain full range of motion of my neck. I can not thank Dr. Bui and his team at Ochsner enough. Overall a great experience.

Overall a great doctor who seem to really care about his patients. I had a great result after an minimally invasive procedure. I have met a few of his patients and they all think the world of him. Highly recommended!
