Dr. Love is caring and professional. I confide in her and she will listen attentively. When she asks questions, she shows concern. She also makes sure that your meds are filled. I give Dr. Love a 5.

Outstanding experience with Dr. Love. She really listens to the patient and sets forth a comprehensive plan of care.

I have never encountered a family physician with such little compassion for patients. Dr. Love does not treat her patients with the respect that they deserve. I have never been spoken to by any human being in the way Dr. Love has spoken to me. I called her office, because I was feeling bad, to get an appointment and could not even get a phone call back the same day, or an appointment for a week! When she called me back the following day, she actually told me "she does not have the time."
Thank you for this review. We're saddened to hear your experience was less than exemplary, and we'd like to have someone reach out to you personally. Please email us at connect@ochsner.org with your contact information so we can pass it along.

I'm very disappointed in Dr. Love's lack of flexibility and availability in communicating with me and my siblings. As a family making difficult decisions for our elderly mother, it seemed impossible at times to have conversations with Dr. Love. I understand that she's busy but in critical cases such as ours I was hoping she'd be more helpful and understanding. In the end she was not and it was a difficult and frustrating experience that I hope other patients don't suffer through as well.
