    in New Iberia. La. |
    I have been using Dr. Sledge for 3 years. He is a very thorough and very concerned Dr. about his patients. His interns that assist him are very concerned and are very caring about the patient. I have had multiple procedures in the office by the interns they were very knowledgable about what was going on. I am fixing to have another procedure in the hospital by Dr. Sledge he explained in detail what was going to go on to fix the problem and was very concerned if I had any questions.

    met the guy once - in and out. have had SEVERAL appointments since then, but haven't seen him again. it's mostly interns who spend about 5 minutes asking you what's wrong and what you want to do about it. if i knew, i'd be getting the big salary and not wasting my time there! when i told the intern about wrist pain, she said, huh....that's weird. and never looked at it. they don't care about patients here.
