First time to see him and I felt comfortable immediately
in Kenner, LA |
Dr. Persich has literally been a life saver for me. You know how people for God-Father & God-Mothers, well Dr. Persich is my God-Doctor. He has never steered me in the wrong direction, he is compassionate and caring about you the individual. His staff is also great and caring, especially Michelle. She goes out of her way to help me with everything I need and they both do it in a quick response time. I would recommend everyone use him.
in New Orleans, LA |
Dr. Persich takes the time to sit down and talk to me about the problems I've been having, what's has and has not been working for me. Then we explains what options are available and, when asked, explains which option he thinks would work better and why. And he's always been right in my case. I appreciate his demeanor, kindness and his explanations. He never rushes you during a visit and has great patience. I definitely would recommend Dr. Persich to anyone in need of his expertise.
