Worst experience I have ever had! Charged us over $2000.00 for 2 separate procedures that never took place, not including a $300 doctor visit. They said doctor would call us back for a month now. We keep calling and he will not return our call. He gave my child a boot that he could not wear because it hurt him. We just went to drug store and a basic wrap healed him. Went to Ochsner and a lady who works there said the procedure means each time the doctor touches you they charge $1000...WHAT??
He told me what I had, how he would correct it and answered all my questions.
