Dr Lea has always and continues to work with me to best manage my neurological issues I constantly deal with daily. I know she is simply a phone call away in event of issues that may come up due to my multiple medical conditions. I trust her judgment and she is very thorough at each visit with me. I can't say enough good things about her without writing a very long essay. I hope she is at ochsner for several years to come....thank you Dr Lea. You're the best. 10 stars!!!!

It took months to get an appointment. At my last appointment, 3rd visit, I had a list of questions/concerns. She told me we would not be able to get through all of my questions in 20 minutes. When she felt the appointment was over she got up and walked out. She did not say good-bye, summarize the appointment, or discuss the next steps/plan of action. A staff person came in and discussed the next steps. I did not feel like she cared or was concerned about my health issues. I felt like a number.
