Patient Comments (4)
in Mandeville, LA |
For the very first time in my life (43 yrs) I have met a doctor who's bedside manner is PHENOMENAL!! Dr. Mena's true care and concern for his patients is out of this world. It's unfortunate I have to see a Vascular surgeon but I THANK GOD I am seeing the BEST that Ochsner has!
in Mandeville, LA |
Doc has performed 3 different surgeries on me for blood clots. To sum him up in one sentence. He cares!!! He's the best.
in Hammond, La |
Dr. Mena provided excellent care. Without Dr. Mena's excellent care and service i would not have survived getting shot during a car jacking. He was able to replace a major artery and vein perfectly. My recovery time was far less than was expected as well.
in Sun, LA |
I went into hospital with what I thought was pneumonia, while in the ER I had a heart attack. Dr., Mena performed 5 bypasses. He was caring & has a great bedside manner. Answered all of my questions, gave me all the information regarding my condition and what needed to be done and checked on me regularly before and after surgery, even late at night. I would highly recommend him as I feel he goes above and beyond his responsibilities before, during & after surgery.
