Patient Comments (1)
Pearl River, LA |
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.
Thank you for this review. We're saddened to hear your experience was less than exemplary, and we'd like to have someone reach out to you personally. Please email us at connect@ochsner.org with your contact information so we can pass it along.
