      He and his staff are excellent!! Takes time answering questions or concerns you may have and explains it well....its hard understanding doctor's terms sometimes. I just felt very comfortable from the first office visit. I highly recommend Dr. Connolly.

      I just wanted to take a moment and say how wonderful Dr. Connolly?s nurses have been to me. They listen to what I have to say, and make me feel like I am more than just a number. I?ve had some horrible doctors in the past (the last ENT I saw for example!) but I feel welcome when I visit your clinic, and not like an inconvenience. Dr. Connolly is an enjoyable doctor, but the nurses make the difference. I have received text messages and calls after hours to answer my questions.

      Dr. Connolly is your un-typical doctor. What I mean by that is he takes all the time you need to explain your symptoms and he does not leave the room until you fully understand everything. I have had 3 surgeries with Dr. Connolly. The last was an Intranasal Surgery. Unlike most doctors, he did not pack my nose after the surgery. This helped tremendously to reduce my pain and discomfort. In fact, I only experienced pain for two days after the surgery. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Connolly

      Great doctor and is very personable took care of my every need.

      Dr. Connolly has seen my daughter twice in the past 6 months. He is extremely knowledgeable and an utmost professional. He was friendly, courteous, and patient with my daughter. He gave sound, trustworthy advice after a detailed and lengthy explanation of the infectious process as well as medical versus surgical options for treatment. His staff was more than accommodating. His office is immaculately clean. It was a pleasure working with Dr. Connolly. I highly recommend him.
      in Mamdeville, La |
      Dr. Connolly is the most condescending jerk I have ever met, and def the worst Doctor. He told me that, because I was breastfeeding my baby past 6 mis, I was causing all kinds of allergies, and I caused my child to have RSV. He did not listen to a word I said, only wanted to preach medical jargon to me. He neglected to order the proper testing as well.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
