Patient Comments (4)
in New Orleans, LA |
Does not respond to emails. Sends interns to evaluate, diagnose, and communicate with patients. I have visited her office twice and she didn't even deign to come in for a minute to speak with me. I had to liaise with the resident like a second-class patient. It's clear they are overworked and short-staffed, but this is unacceptable. Also wait time from appt time averages 5 hours consistently. So rude. So unprofessional.
in Mandeville, LA |
I would recommend Doctor Babineaux to everyone. I cut my tendon in August 2016. I had surgery on August 25,2016. Dr. Babineaux helped me understand my situation, was up front about the treatment. I go to psychical therapy twice a week. My hand is still improving and I still continue to see her. I may be facing a second surgery but the only surgeon I trust with my hand is Doctor Babineaux.
in Gulfport, Ms |
This dr didn't even come in after the surgery to tell the patient how the surgery went before he was discharged. Nothing. Also, after a serious hand surgery from a thumb amputation you would think they would send you home with a pain prescription. Nope not with her. And after calling about it and being told we would be called back, no one called. Terrible. Very inconsiderate and unprofessional if you ask me. Just showed she doesn't really care about her patients.
in Cut Off, LA |
She is very knowledgeable, and she takes the time to explain everything in terms that a patient can understand. She is very friendly and has wonderful bedside manner. I would highly recommend her!
