I have been seeing Dr. Oubre since Dr. Hill quit and have been very satisfied with him. He is very knowledgeable and caring and doesn't rush through your appointment and answers all questions. Also, all the staff, especially Marva, are warm and welcoming and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him Shirley Lyons

Absolutely terrible and misleading info on their website. It says they are accepting new patients and list all the insurances they accept. My insurance is on the list so I called to verify everything, and over the phone they say they are accepting new patients, but don't accept new patients who have my insurance. That is a complete bait and switch because their website shows it. Dishonest practice and don't advise anyone to see them as they are dishonest.

He takes his time during my appts to explain issues and listen to my concerns. His staff is always kind and willing to help. I’m extremely happy that dr Oubre is my physician and would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Oubre is one in a million. He is extremely knowledgeable, experienced and efficient but he is also personable, friendly and HE LISTENS to his patients. He is very willing and able to work with you to solve your health issues. He has greatly improved both my wife's quality of life and mine. I definitely recommend Dr. Oubre to everyone but especially those with difficult health issues.

Dr. John Oubre allowed me to sit in a rehabilitation hospital with my feet swollen three times their normal size and kept telling me, "Oh, that's normal." My daughter had to take me to the ER and they were shocked at the size of my feet! I have congestive heart failure, and the amount of fluid retention he allowed me to sit there with could have killed me! I dropped him the day I went to the ER like that! Never again will I see this Doctor!
