    in Baton Rouge, LA |
    Dr. Fivgas was very patient and explained things to me in laymen terms and even though his office was obviously very busy, he did a thorough exam, patiently answered my questions and explained things well to me. I had what was potentially an urgent issue and they worked me and were very pleasant even though me being there I'm sure interfered with their daily schedule. Very appreciative to Dr. Fivgas and his staff. Highly recommend him as a doctor.
