Dr Darr is a very professional and caring Dr. His main concern is you the paient as a whole not just your problem. The care he provides is second to none.

Dr Darr is takes a personal interest in his paients.

On April 20, 2016 I had a full knee replacement. Surgery went as scheduled and I was up moving a day or so later. Now I was moving with the aide of a walker and a nurse but they had me moving. His attention to detail and explanation is excellent. My wife enjoyed all the attention she received and the forth right amount of information he shared with her. We were extremely pleased with his followup and his detail to my needs. A year later I am active and my scar is barely noticeable. Thank you

Before having my knee replacement,I spoke with 20 other people who had the same procedure. One name kept coming up,Dr.Kevin Darr. The 3 patients of his that I spoke with were way ahead of the curve both in rehabilitation and overall satisfaction with the end results. I met with him and had my right knee replaced. I was walking the same day, doing laps around my driveway at home the next day after. Both Darr and his staff are top notch and very helpful. A skilled surgeon.

I had arthroscopic surgery due to a torn meniscus. Dr. Darr and his staff did an Amazing job. Was really shocked to get a call personally from Dr.Darr later in the evening to just check on me. First Class!

Dr. Darr provided first-class medical treatment with my knee injury and surgery. He has the highest standards of professionalism and provides personal attention to your specific needs. His staff is amazing and was always available to answer questions and guide me through the process both before and after surgery. 5 Star service is provided by Dr. Darr and his staff. Dr. Darr is an amazing orthopedic surgeon and is recommended at the highest level.

After knee surgery no compression hose were put on my legs. I developed a blood clot and things continued to spiral out of control. Dr Darr had to drain fluid out of my knee twice after surgery. He made it obvious that I was interfering with his daily schedule. Another ortho doctor said I had tears in my knee from Dr Darr use of needles draining my knee. Darr's main concern is to push PRP, which I rejected. I was a tennis player and runner, I can do neither since Darr operated on my knee.
in Mandeville, LA |
Very personable. His staff are nice. He messed up my procedure, had prolonged problems post surgery. He knew I would need a knee replacement but took no consideration in the placement of my incision and left me with very little viable skin. He rushed to close my large incision, used a single running stitch in a highly mobile and stressed area on my leg leaving me with a scar that looks like Frankenstein and problems with healing because of his sloppy closure. Then, lengthy waiting in his office.

My family has had Dr Kevin Darr perform numerous surgeries throughout the last 15-20 years. Each surgery a total success! Dr Darr is a caring,confident & dedicated surgeon. I highly recommend him!
in Covington, LA |
I saw him for 3 minutes. He came in the room said I didn't need surgery and left. 8 months later my foot is still broken. I should have had surgery or at minimum a cast not a walking boot everytime I went to see him I always saw his helper and I waited 4 hrs everytime!.
in New Orleans, LA |
Dr. Darr's staff, nursing, clerical and billing have all been such a blessing. Always very patient, pleasant and helpful. I was terribly frightened knowing that I had several different things going on, all which required surgery to repair. Dr. Darr is so knowledgeable and was so helpful in explaining each repair, not only to me but to my family after the surgery. The day after surgery, he showed us the video of the procedure describing in detail each thing he did.
