This doctor does not listen to me. I ask a question and he begins to answer it before I've finished asking it. He asked me the same questions each visit. Like do I smoke. Things that should be in his file in me. He acts impatient and angry most of the time. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. I have left his office more than once feeling disparaged and unheard. I tried communicating via patient portal and to his credit he called me but did not be bothered to read my message. Offended. Unhappy.

I had seen 3 neuros before finding Dr Louis and he was the only one with the experience and expertise to take on my case which one of the prior had never seen before and the other two failed to think out of the box. I needed the guy who had seen it and done it all dozens of times and after surveying multiple docs in town, I was fortunate enough to land in Dr. Louis' office. I owe him my current quality of life which, under the circumstances, has exceeded all my expectations.

Dr. Louis was recommended to me by another physician when I developed serious back pain. From my first appointment with him I felt absolute confidence that my problem would be resolved. He showed true empathy and kindness. Although I did have to have back surgery which was scary, I now have my life back thank to Dr. Louis.

Dr Louis was the 3rd neurosurgeon I have seen for the same problem. He was the only one to give me relief. Perhaps because he was the only one who spent 45 minutes just listening to me and was able to evaluate my case in whole. Fantastic Doctor. Eternal gratitude.

He comes in and spends about 5 minutes with a patient. I know he gets paid for at least 15 minutes. He doesn't take time to listen, and seems angry when you try to explain your problems
