in Metairie, LA |
I had my first appointment with Dr. Wooldridge and I found him to be very knowledgeable, easy to converse with, he allowed me to fully define my symptoms and he explained his assessment, and proposed actions.. If you want to be treated like a patient, and not just a number, I would suggest that you make an appointment with him. You will not be disappointed!!
in Thibodaux, LA |
He is professional and cares about the well-being of his patients. He never makes you feel like he's too rushed to spend time with you and answer your questions- even when he is. He treats with his heart. I would recommend him to anyone. His nurse, Jeneane, is also amazing.
