Absolutely terrible. Terrible communication. Untouchable on weekend even while patient at ER. Refused to provide service at Ochsner Slidell even though patient is admitted in that hospital. Dr Vu wants the patient to leave the hospital and be transported some place else. Absolutely ridiculous....more

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. ??
