Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I was very pleased with my experience at Ochsner. It was good to be treated with professionalism and care. When I say Dr. Cook and all the other employees made me feel that I was in safe hands and even made me smile when I left, then you can believe they are the best. I am truly grateful and I appreciated their willingness to answer questions. All this adds up to customer service you rarely see these days! You have a customer for life. Coming here is like dealing with trusted family. THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH!!

Scheduled this appointment MONTHS in advance. Was told to arrive a few minutes early. Called to say that I had arrived (per instructions) and was told that the lobby was full so I had to wait in the car. Called back after waiting 20 minutes and was told it would be another 45-60 minutes before I could be put in an exam room. Was told I could reschedule but the next opening was several weeks. Will find a different doctor.

Awful Experience Janet Cook is arrogant with a poor bedside manner. She doesn't listen and cuts you off when trying to relay your symptoms. As long as I waited after arriving early for my appointment I did not appreciate being rushed along. This was the single worse interaction I've ever has with a physician. I've seen her twice and that was enough for me to stay away.
