Granda Hudson. – Apr 23, 2021
Granda, Thank you for choosing Dr. Frank Marrero....Read More
Dr. Marrero and his office staff are very friendly and professional. He listened attentively as I told him about my symptoms. He quickly acknowledged what he thought it was and told me the treatment regimen he was going to use. My medication was called in to my pharmacy and was ready before I even got there. His nurse, Russiel, was so accommodating and caring also. She called me to see how treatment was going and told me to call her if there was anything else I may need. Such a wonderful medical team! I will definitely recommend them to my friends and family.

Lake Charles, LA – May 31, 2017
Impersonal and egotistical. Didn't spend any time answering questions or even acting like he was interested in helping resolve my issues. They filed my proceedure incorrectly after assuring me it would be filed as routine, they filed it as diagnostic and now I'm paying BIG time. I tried to call and kept getting no help at all. Very unprofessional. I've seen a lot of doctors and he's definitely on the WORST list.
