I love the way Dr. Leo listened to my concerns and worked around my schedule to treat me. I would highly recommend Dr. Orejarena to anyone looking for a great doctor!
|
Always great care - Always ready to answer question or go over any problems.
|
I could not have been treated any better everyone was very nice and had a smile.
|
*Dr. Leo and his staff are outstanding. The Ochsner staff is excellent.
|
My provider suggested that I have some test done for further exams, which was scheduled within the following week of my visit. I have just completed most of these test and have been very, very pleased with all the help I have received.

Dr. Orejarena treated my husband. He did an angiogram and diagnosed him with a damaged heart. He told my husband that his arteries were too small for bypass surgery or a stint and treated him for 10 years with medicine. My husband started passing out and Dr. Orejarena did not suggest any treatment. We decided to see another cardiologist and within 2 weeks he had a 6 bypass surgery. This new cardiologist saved my husband's life. We were told every time he passed out his heart had stopped.

A wonderful technician and very caring individual with a great sense of humor. Can't speak highly enough of Dr. Leo! He diagnosed my need for an aortic valve and did the technical preparation for it including the angiogram. So pleased with Dr. Leo that a few years ago, he was the go-to doctor for my wife's pacemaker. Done perfectly with no complications.
