Amazing Doctor
Dr. McLaughlin provided me with a very calm and reassuring consultation with my initial appointment. He explained my situation with confidence and on a level that my husband and I could understand. He is a phenomenal surgeon! He removed all cancer from my tongue which has already completely healed. I realize their are many options of physicians in this field of study. I feel extremely blessed to have the best so close by.

Dr. Mclaughlin is a great physician and throughout the years of my being a patient of his, has been very thorough in explaining how such a rare & complicated condition I had could be treated. He goes above and beyond what's expected from a physician to make sure your needs are met.

I had a very rare condition that required surgery. Dr McLaughlin thoroughly explained how I got the condition and how it is repaired surgically. He spent a lot of time with me and answered every question. The surgery was successful, but as a result of having my mouth open for so long, my jaw dislocated. Dr McLaughlin referred me to my dentist and followed up with me afterwards. I am very happy with the care I received and would recommend him without hesitation.

Good at first, then went downhill very fast.He does not like to be told that something he prescribed for you just does not work for you.He became very irritated and angry when i told him a medication caused me a lot of pain.Would not recommend him to my worst enemy.I would never ever go back to such a clown.

Lifelong allergy sinus sufferer. Two sinus surgeries in the 1990s with awful recovery & short lived results. Dr. McLaughlin uses newer/better methods. My initial consult involved examination and a CT scan of my skull. Dr. McLaughlin showed the results and explained in detail what they meant. Long wait times in his clinic are because he takes whatever time is necessary for the patient to fully understand everything. He performed the surgery and I am DELIGHTED with the results. I was breathing freely by the third day post-op. The recovery from this method has been spectacularly easy and comfortable. NO pain, NO packing, NO bleeding after the 2nd day, and I'm breathing so much better ever since. Immediately after the surgery, while explaining post-op care to my wife and me, he gave me his personal cell number in case I had questions or concerns. What other doctor does that?!? Dr. McLaughlin is a wonderful ENT and my only regret is that I didn't find him sooner.

Dr McLaughlin solved my daughter's sinus problems after other Drs had done 3 sinus surgeries. He is THE sinus expert in Louisiana. Patients are also referred to him from other states. You might have to wait longer, but he will take the time to explain things so that you understand.

He rushes, does not listen to the ER, treats the patient like an idiot, and is full of himself. I’ve worked in the medical field for almost 20 years and have never encountered such a jerk. I do not recommend him at all.

Spends all the time needed to explain your condition, options for treatment, and is an outstanding surgeon. His bedside manner is excellent. When appropriate, he provides outstanding after hours support. It is true that his afternoon appointments run late more often than not, but only because he will spend all the time necessary with a patient. He will not be rushed!

Dr McLaughlin is one of the best doctors I have ever used in my life. He is an expert in dealing with sinus issues and is the most detailed doctor I have ever used. He explains everything completely and wants to make sure that his patients understand what he is doing. I have had sinus issues for thirty years and after undergoing surgery under his expert hands, I am feeling much better. I recommend him highly to anyone looking for the best ENT doctor in this state! He is simply an expert!

Dr. McLaughlin explains things so well. He really wants his patients to understand what is going on with them medically. Most doctors don't take the time to do that or do not have a setup that allows that. I ask a lot of questions and always want to know what is going on with me so that I can take better care of myself. It is empowering. Dr. McLaughlin will take his time with you and it's worth the wait. I am pleased with his services. I got better under his care and he acted in my best interest

I've been his patient for 3 years now as I had a medical condition which required monitoring and then a very complex surgical procedure. Every visit has been thorough and my surgery results are absolutely perfect. There have been many appointments where I've had to wait beyond my set appointment time, but this is because he will never cut short an appointment just to hurry. He will take as long as needed to ensure all of my questions are answered, and that all of my medical needs are met.

I was referred to Dr. McLaughlin in November 2015. During my first consultation, he impressed me as a very knowledgeable physician who explained the problem clearly in a caring and respectful manner. He demonstrated competence and professionalism during a subsequent surgical procedure. Follow-up visits have been a great experience as well; Dr. McLaughlin has gone above and beyond to accommodate my schedule, being considerate of the fact I have to travel several hours to his office.

I waited 3 hrs to see him for my first appointment in Baton Rouge. He seems to be a competent MD but you should know every time you see him in Baton Rouge you will be hit with a hospital surcharge just like out patient surgery that your insurance will not cover. This can be anywhere from 200 to 1000 dollars every time he uses any equipment in that office. He says he has no controle over that and that he is on a salary. I saw him one week after surgery and got hit again with a surgery fee.
