He is a PROCEDURE doctor which is amazing if his procedures were done within a few days of seeing him and pain is relieved. Unfortunately, his procedures are a month out and he does not care about the physical and mental pain one endures while waiting. I am confined to my bed with no pain reliefe waiting on a July 20th injection! I've since found a 5 star PM doctor who cares about his patients and have some reliefe while I wait for my procedure. I will NEVER return to this doctor again!!
Thank you for this review. We're very sorry about your experience, and we'd like to have someone reach out to you personally. Please email us at connect@ochsner.org with your contact information so we can pass it along.

Efficient staff..procedure went well and he seemed very proficient and well trained. Would have felt more confident with better explanation afterwards about what to expect but guess have to go back to Spine Specialist for that or just wait to see results. Had epidural today. ??

Dr. Vu figured out what was causing my pain and was able to treat it. I am now pain free.
