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!

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.
