Patient Comments (4)
in Denham Springs, LA |
He did not listen to me or address a number of concerns I had regarding my back, my foot, carpal tunnel and tennis elbow. He only set up testing for my carpal tunnel and nothing else. On my follow up visit after a nerve conductivity test for carpal tunnel he did not remember, have notes on or recommend any test for my other concerns. I had to bring them up and he seemed to have little concern. I went to another Dr that promptly set up, an MRI, x-rays and therapy to address my other problems.

Dr. Frierson is an amazing orthopedic surgeon!! He helped me recover from my accident very quickly. He is the best. Wouldn't have gone to any other doctor for our amazing care. His hard work and dedication helped me succeed any getting up and walking. He was always there to check on me in the Hospital and after my release, our checkups were very easy to attend. He definitely cares about his patients. I would not have had any better experience with any other doctor.

He did not listen to me or my daughter and was very insensitive. She tried to tell him that she couldn't put weight on her foot, but he insisted that she should. He even belittled me (her mother) for having her hop around (not put weight) on it for the weekend. He gave her a walking boot, told her to put weight on it. She tried that night and fell, injuring her hand. Upon return, another doc discovered it was a damaged perennial sensory nerve - the one that makes your foot fall asleep...

I was impressed with my one visit to Dr. Frierson. He explained my condition with patience and recommended a reasonable treatment. Wait time was long. There were many patients.
