Patient Comments (5)
LA |
In my initial visit, he seemed hurried and disinterested. He abruptly left the room. I didn't know the visit was over. At my followup visit, he told me that the polyp was precancerous and that I would need another colonoscopy in three years. He said, "You will only have two or three more because we don't do them on people in their 70's." I reminded him that my mother died of colon cancer, and he flippantly said, "I know." High-risk patients turn 70 and quit screening? I don't think so!

Seemed distracted and disinterested and even sarcastic. After about 10 minutes of discussion, he stood up and said he was going to schedule my test and left. I had more questions so I waited, his nurse came in and started to clean up and when I asked if he was going to come back, she said no. I had to chase him down at the nurses station to ask the rest of my questions. His diagnosis turned out to be totally incorrect, confirmed thru another doctor using more modern testing methods.

Dr Gosserand & his nurses are excellent. always have been treated in a timely manner, nurses returned phone calls quickly and my conditions were always explained in a way i understood (not too much medical terminology). He is a very personable doctor and listens thoroughly.
in Pineville, LA |
I would definitely recommend Dr. Gosserand because he is a very competent physician. He performed a endoscopy and colonoscopy on me and opened up a stricture in my esophagus that was causing me to experience dysphagia (pain on swallowing).
in Louisiana |
After I came back for a checkup after testing ands treatment (with no relief), I informed him that I was still having the same symptoms. He offered to write a prescription for a medicine that he had already prescribed. After I told him this, he said well looks like you don't need to come back for another ten years. Once I was so sick & leaning on the wall & the staff said, you're sick huh? No help-discouraged
