    Dr. Blessey has been providing primary care to me for over 5 years. She always takes her time to explain things to me and is a wonderful physician. She is very thorough and provides excellent care. Ochsner is very fortunate to have her on staff.

    Dr. Blessey always listens, doesn't hurry you or make you feel like you're wasting her time, and takes a genuine interest in the patient. She is kind, enthusiastic, and has the "human touch" missing in so many doctor-patient visits. I will continue seeing her as long as she is seeing patients!

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
