in Gonzales la |
Dr.Dominguez did my sleeve surgery on 5/30/17 very friendly and professional. The morning of surgery he came and sat with me as we waited for the Anesthesiologist. It was nothing but laughs and great conversation. Which made me very comfortable with him. His office staff is beyond amazing and always responds within 5-10 minutes. I couldn't have chosen a better DR.
in Covington,La |
My surgery is set for 6/6/17.... First Impressions is everything! Dr. Dominguez revised my information in the Myochsner portal b/c I had a lot of the footwork done due to the fact that Dr.Gridley of Slidell had been leading me to a dead end road.... Dr. Gridley used a Dr. Now Approach w/ me But Dr. Dominguez was straight to the point and could sense my determination in hindsight that's how he gained my trust! It is pertinent to have a connection w/ your surgeon and I felt just that. After all...
in lafayette, la |
Upon meeting Dr. Dominguez for the first time I felt very comfortable and confident with trusting him to do my weight loss surgery. He is a very confident individual that makes you feel at ease. Overall I am truly satisfied with the outcome of my surgery and the total experience with Dr. Dominguez.

I loved him and the staff... He has changed my life for the better!!! He has a fun personality!!! I didn't know him and I trusted him and he did what he does best....
This doctor performed my VGS 10/28/16, he was awesome at each visit and during my hospital stay. I loved the staff at the office and would highly recommend him.
in Franklinton, LA |
Dr. Dominguez did 4 procedures on me. 2 were in hospital and the other 2 were out patient. He has awesome bedside manners. When I was upset with what was going on with me, he could always make me laugh and talk me through it. He always took his time with me and answered all my questions. Would absolutely recommend him and if i ever need a general surgeon again I would go back to him. With that being said Thank you Dr. Mark Dominguez for all that you did for me! Your Awesome!

Saved my life~ Captured Dr. Dominguez from reference of Dr. Russell Wardlaw! It's been 8 years, since my gastro sleeve. Compassion Spectacular. Medical Direct breakdown on pre-during and after operation. Still star struck, by the top of the line health care Dr. Dominquez shared with me.~ Cherie Munster, Covington, Louisiana
in Cade,La |
I had my vertical sleeve surgery done June 22,2016 by Dr. Dominguez and it was the best experience ever. I felt at ease and he was very cordial and compassionate and answered all of my questions. He is an amazing person all around and it was a blessing for him to be a part of my new walk in life!!
in Lafayette, LA |
Dr. Dominguez is very nice and professional. He is so down to earth. He listened and then gave medical advice. I felt as though he cared. He explained my procedure in detail and reassured me that I would be fine. He made me feel comfortable enough to ask any question. He is very knowledgable and confident for being a younger doctor. He has already performed surgery on my sister. Therefore I highly recommend him. In a few weeks he will perform surgery on me.

Discourages questions, dismisses client's concerns.

Dr. Dominguez did my brothers appendectomy about 3-4 years ago. The surgery went smoothly and very successful. He was very friendly and knew exactly what he was saying.
in Bogue Chitto, MS |
I initially went to Dr. D for weight loss surgery. He is always friendly and professional. He was the first doctor to look at me and see me...not the obese person I had become. I still drive the 2 hours to see him instead of a local doctor for my gi issues!
