I was able to see him promptly, within a few days of calling. Very pleased with his review of my data, and especially with his diagnosis that I do not need a follow up unless bloodwork changes significantly. I found him personable, attentive, and timely considering I was not his first patient of the day.

My visit was an annual checkup. Dr. Oubre discussed all of my test results and he answered every question I asked. He was not in a hurry and I appreciated the patience he had with me. I would recommend him to family and friends.

Dr. Oubre has been routinely +1 hour late for apptmts, regardless of 1st apptmt of day, or afternoon. He does not look at scans ever (his words), just reads test reports. He does no review of patient tests until he logs into his computer while patient sits and watches. His demeanor makes clear that he thinks himself a god. After seeing him and exiting, one views the waiting area overflowing with other cancer patients. Some of his staff are uncooperative. Keep in mind, patients are in many cases fighting for their lives and this is how they are treated. Would urge anyone to seek another oncologist.

Facing chemo treatments was scary for me, but I was immediately at ease with Dr Oubre and the wonderful staff at PCC. I am thankful for the personal attention I received that kept me feeling like a human and not a number. I am truly grateful for the care and compassion I received.

Not a good doctor! My mother, who had a biopsy done, and still trying to get results for over a week. Oubre want her to come to his office, she's at home on hospice and ;can barely get out of bed. Even with a Health Care POA, Oubre still won't release the results. I wouldn't use this doctor, even if he was the last physical on earth.

Dr. Oubre and his staff are amazing. They truly care about their patients. I feel like they are my extended family. I never feel rushed through my visits. They listen and take as long as necessary to be sure my questions are answered and that I understand all aspects of my care.

I wish I would have had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Oubre, as he (HIMSELF) did come recommended. But, unfortunately, WE are only as good as our TEAM. Therefore, I would NOT recommend him to anyone with such involved disorders with blood/cancer. Rather than listing specific frustrations with his Hammond Clinic- I will state that this ENTIRE office staff lacks professionalism, efficiency, and the competence level needed to successfully run & treat patients with such sensitive needs & issues.

I've been using Dr Oubre as my oncologist since being diagnosed with cancer, and requiring chemotherapy and follow up since November, 2015. Every experience has been wonderful as he has a frank, yet comforting bedside manner and knows his stuff. Takes the time to listen, discuss options and that ALONE sets him apart from other doctors. I'll continue to see him, have quite literally put my life in his hands, and will recommend him for as long I live. -J. Armijo, Mandeville, LA
