Yellville, AR |
Love this doctor and his staff. Growing up I had polio and never had a right hip. In 1990 this doctor built my hip. It is now 2017 I'm 68 years old, have not seen a doctor, since. My hip is still going strong.

Good experience.

*Dr. Ochnsner is the best for me.
in Mandeville, LA |
He was rude to me. Lied to me about stem cell therapy options (I had done extensive research before going to my appointment about the variety of options and research studies being done at Ocshner Hospital at that time using stem cell therapy.) He made a nasty, cutting remark to the student, about me as I was walking away. I was disgusted and stunned.
