Patient Comments (2)
Baton Rouge, LA |
Wrote three different diagnoses. Finally wrote diagnosis in chart that was never discussed during office visits. Final diagnosis was inconsistent with results from x-rays and other tests. Did not order a CT scan or other exams to confirm diagnosis. Makes unsubstantiated, baseless diagnoses without factual evidence. See previous reviewer.
We are very concerned to hear about this encounter and truly apologize for your recent experience. Please email connect@ochsner.org with your phone number and the location where you were seen so we can have a patient relations liaison reach out to you personally. Thank you for your time.

I have sat-in on several appointments with my husband, have not been impressed with Dr. Gomes. He wants to diagnose everything as being cancer when tests prove it is not. Will be looking for a new doctor.
Thank you for this review. We're very sorry about your experience, 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.
