Dr. Faust and his staff were not only extremely competent but also very accommodating, and I am someone who typically has no faith in doctors. I also don't have insurance and they work with self pay patients in a way that renews your faith that there are still doctors who are in it for the right reasons. I can use my hand again so thanks!

Dr Faust is excellent. New Orleans is lucky to have such a high caliber surgeon. My experience with him was wonderful. I have total trust in his ability and grateful that my wrist surgery was a total success.

This doctor refused time and time again to explain my surgery, process, timeline, and recovery. It wasn't until I was on the surgery table with witnesses that he explained the procedure and recovery time. Come to find out he did not do the surgery he explained at all, and never told me until I confronted him about it well into recovery, which he never told me now had extra steps and time added on to it. I had to do my own research and confront him for answers and explanations. He still hasn't.
