I've been seeing Dr. Oubre for almost 11 years. When the cancer was active, he put me at ease with his calm manner. He always takes time to explain everything clearly and listen to any questions I have.

I have been seeing Dr. Oubre for many years. First with an iron deficiency that he treated with infusions, and then for chemo for stomach cancer. Always open and honest and talks to you in a manner you can understand.

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.
