Patient Comments (5)
New Orleans, LA |
I have never been able to see Dr. Happel any sooner than 45 minutes to an hour after my scheduled appointment, and have waited longer than that. I feel doctors should demonstrate respect for patients' schedules, and feel total disregard by this office. Happel's Metairie office staff is apathetic to patients' needs and demonstrates a general lack of personal regard. I think ALL doctors' offices need empathetic staff, ESPECIALLY when serving patients dealing with seizures and strokes.
in Independence, LA |
Very compassionate doctor, he has been my doctor for over 15 years. Used to drive from Alexandria to Metairie to see him, a 4 hour drive. He is very empathetic with the patient's situation. One of the best I have been treated by!
