You’re going to need a 2nd opinion
In February mikdadi told me my heart ejection fraction was 20% and that he wanted to implant a defibulator under my skin in case my heart stopped. 3 days later I got a 2nd opinion at Ochsner Hospital. They ran their own tests and told me my ejection fraction was 50% and that I absolutely did NOT need a defibulator. Be careful if mikdadi tells you he wants to do a procedure on you.

Traveling through the area, my husband had an accident and needed surgery. He was sent to Dr. Mikdadi to get a surgical clearance. After hearing of our predicament, staff scheduled him to be seen immediately. There was a slight anomaly in his EKG which required an extra, more time consuming test, that was scheduled for two days later and the doctor called the results to the surgeon immediatey. Everyone at the office went out of their to help us, since we were strangers to the area. Thank you!

The middle of last week a lady called to remind me of an upcoming app with Dr, Mikdadi. I asked her could we see him in Livingston. She said he did not go to Livingston. I told her the last time we were In Hammond we were told he did go there. She checked and came back To phone and said that he does go to Livingston, but she could not make that appt, that she would contact the person who makes those appts. To date, we have not heard from anyone to get the appt. Leroy Dardeau.
