Four different diagnoses from one test, & took almost 5 months to get those. Each diagnosis was progressively worse, when I could actually convince him to look at it and/or to actually look at my case notes. Makes whole process totally useless in determining future surgical decisions and therefore a waste of time and money.

This guy is the worst doctor in New Orleans!!! He diagnosed me with Multiple Sclerosis when I really had Fibromyalgia.
If I could give negative stars I would. Not only am I bruised from his roughness but I cried soon as I left from his hostility and just plain meaness! I would not recommend him at all. I wish I would of took the other recommendation and ran from him. Its no wonder its so easy to get into an appointment with him...

Hands down the worst experience I had ever had with a doctor. Waited months for an appointment in pain, only to have him rush in, immediately insult my appearance, ignore the CT scan I had brought with me, dig his fingers so hard into the sides of my neck that it brought tears to my eyes, and send me home with anti-inflammatories. I was never contacted for a followup appointment either. A more competent neurologist at another hospital later diagnosed my pain as nerve damage from meningitis.

He is rude and way too rough. He hit me on the sides of my head and stuck kleenex in my eyes. He also scratched my face with a metal rod. He sent me home with muscle relaxers and I've been in unbearable pain waiting on an MRI. Stay away from him.
