Patient Reviews (3)
in Belle Chasse, Louisiana |
He has been my cardiac care specialist for many, many years. I feel very comfortable and welcome in his presence. He listens to my concerns and we discuss options as if we are part of a team working together. He has been with me through several serious episodes and I remain alive and well to talk about it. Over the course of my experience with the Heart Clinic of Louisiana I have seen each and every cardiologist and I would still choose Dr. Kerut as my primary cardiac care physician.

Dr. Kerut was the attending Doctor at Ocshner after my Heart attack. I fell in love with his bedside manner an requested him to be my Cardiologist. Luckily he was accepting new patients. Dr. Kerut is blunt, to the point, and he tells you when you are wrong. But he does it with sincerity and compassion. You really get the feeling that he truly cares about you and your well being. I met Dr. Kerut at one of the scariest times of life. And I am truly glad i did. Count yourself lucky to be a patient
