Dr. Budziakowska's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Budziakowska "Hello all! You may notice that my last name is fairly odd- It's Polish. Don't worry though- most of my patients call me Dr. B. Let me give you some background. I was born in Katowice, Poland and at age 7, moved to the United States with my parents and younger brother. We lived in Chicago, IL, called "Poland #2" because believe it or not, Chicago has the second highest Polish population in the world, second only to Warsaw, the capital of Poland. In Chicago, I spent eight years earning my undergraduate and medical school degrees at Loyola University and Loyola Stritch School of Medicine respectively. In order to help serve the under and uninsured population of Chicago, I spent three years working and completing my Internal Medicine Residency at the University of Illinois Chicago Medical Center. In my last year of training I rotated through a Rheumatology Clinic and fell in love with the specialty. My desperate need for sunshine, Jazz and Southern Hospitality ultimately brought me southward to New Orleans. I completed a two year Rheumatology Fellowship at Ochsner Medical Center where I got to work under masterful, highly experienced Rheumatologists. In 2016, I successfully passed my Board Examination and now am proud to call myself Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Rheumatology. I recently joined a wonderful Rheumatology Clinic at Ochnser Medical Center in Baton Rouge. I am lucky to have a wonderful team that cares first and foremost about patient care. I am excited to finally be able use my knowledge to help others. I look forward to meeting and learning from you all. I look forward to devoting the next 40 years of my life to my patients and community. Best. Dr. Budziakowska"

I have been highly impressed with the health care received from Dr Budziakowska. If not for her persistence, follow thru, thoroughness, and going what I consider above and beyond, a serious vascular health issue would have remained unknown to me. I recommend her highly and feel truly blessed God...more

Worst doctor I've ever seen in my life. Completely dismissive of all my concerns. I spent a year of my life in severe pain-nearly dying on a few occasions- all because this woman convinced my mother and myself it was "all in my head". Grateful I started researching things for myself and starting a...more

Was easy to get in for a visit, but quickly became apparent why. First off, she was late and didn't seem to give much attention. Although Dr. B is nice, she came off as inexperienced and incompetent. One of those doctors who just got through school by memorizing a bunch of stuff. But has no clue...more

Worst visit I've ever been to. The Doctor was late ( i was the first appt of the day). She hadn't reviewed my chart or cared whatsoever about why I was visiting her. She seemed eager to get me out of the office but not to assist me. If you are looking to speak with someone with ANY bed side manner...more
