Marrero, LA |
I saw Dr. Hijazi this week, and I was so pleased. He was kind and had a wonderful bedside manner. I gave me many options to help control my chronic pain. I would recommend him to anyone that suffers every day of their life. I saw another doctor in hopes that he could help me , and he was nothing like Dr. Hijazi. I will certainly continue to see Dr. Hijazi. He is a first class man. His staff could not have been better. I had to wait for an hour, but that was fine with me.

“To echo the other star reviews, the doctor and his staff have been extremely helpful to me with a variety of my issues. Despite having a busy practice, I’m almost always able to schedule an appt. within a few days of my calling and receive a response to my email or phone questions often the same day. I’ve consulted many MDs in my life, and it’s rare I’ve found one as knowledgalble, accommodating, and concerned as Dr. Hijazi!

My appointments begin within minutes of my arriving (so no long wait). He was very attentive to how I was feeling. Very friendly and easy to deal with.
