We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

He didn't know why I was seeing him. He argued what I was in his office for. He didn't read my file that was in front of him at all. He argued with me that I had gallstones even though his hospital diagnosed me with them. He told me I didn't need my gallbladder removed even though 3 doctors told me I needed it out ASAP. I had to wait 2 weeks and didn't get appropriate pain management because he didn't read my files and know I'm a chronic pain patient that doesn't respond well to opiods.

Upon calling and scheduling to see him the staff was professional and quick to make me an appt. I was called back immediately to ensure Dr. Trahan could help with my health issues. My time waiting in the waiting room wasn’t more than a few minutes. Dr. Trahan assessed my condition and explained it on a scientific level I have never been explained by other physicians. Very honest in his evaluation. Extremely confident and secure about his profession. I have seen many Doctors who over schedule causing evaluations to be cut short, whereas Dr. Trahan seemed to spend adequate time addressing all my concerns and medical issues. If your in search of an outstanding & courteous General Surgeon I recommend Dr. Trahan!
