Patient Comments (8)
Slidell, LA |
I have been a patient of Dr Gurtler for 22 years. Being diagnosed with cancer is a scary thing....after meeting with Dr Gurtler I have to say I was so relaxed and felt secure that I was getting the best care I could have. And that I got. Her attitude fostered such a positive attitude in my mind and it is proven that having a positive attitude increases survival rate. She is concerned about her patients 150% and her knowledge of this dreaded disease is unparalleled.

Don't go here without keeping close track of what they bill you for. Her office staff has sent my deceased husband bills every month even though she had seen him as a professional courtesy to another doctor and performed no services. I have spoken to her office who agree that I should not be billed. I have sent the bills back with the same explanation. They still send the bill. This is now getting to be harassment. Good doctor - BAD office practices.

Dr gurtler has treated my son for almost 10 years and he loves her..she is the best!!!
in Harvey, LA |
She's a brilliant physician, but also a wonderful person that cares about her patients.
in New Orleans, LA |
This doctor is highly incompassionate and has horrible bedside manner. She is extremely rude and ultimately the worst doctor you'd want treating your loved ones with terminal cancer... This was our last resort after leaving MD Anderson after 10 years and the level of compassion and care is sub zero in comparison.
Harvey, LA |
I WOULD RECOMMEND DR. GURTLER IN A HEARRBEAT. THE MOST CARING, LOVING, DR. YOU COULD ASK FOR. ALWAYS ON TOP OF YOUR LABS, MEDICATIONS. I THANK GOD FOR DR. GURTLER. COME SEE DR. GURTLER AND GET THE BEST RESULTS.
She is a fighter, always one step forward the disease. Very knowledgeable with many connections to the most famous cancer centers on the planet. Human and available (you don't have to wait for several weeks to get your results and be taken care.
