Dr. Breaux is concerned, caring, pleasant, and gets to know his patients personally--he is always interested in getting to know you as a person, and not just a patient. I would recommend Dr. Breaux and his staff unequivocally to anyone I knew looking for a heart specialist--his staff cares about the "heart" of person--their life, their well-being, and their overall happiness and good health.
