Patient Reviews (3)
in Hammond, LA |
I was not able to meet him in person before the procedure due to my condition. He was very nice and explained to me what the procedure involved step by step. After the procedure, he spoke with both me and my wife and was very gentle in delivering the diagnosis. He was positive and has called my after each additional test it have had and explained in detail the prognosis. You actually receive the calls from him, not a nurse. I felt very comfortable talking with him.
