Care Philosophy

My understanding of the relationship between a physician and patient is that we work together to accomplish a desired goal. My principle roll is to provide the patient with accurate information about their condition or diagnosis. That usually includes defining non-operative and operative options for treatment that are available in managing a particular condition. As an orthopedic surgeon, my skills include a variety of very specific surgical procedures which benefit patients with orthopedic conditions. I give my best effort in applying my skills, my experience, advancing and ever changing technologies and my judgment to each circumstance or situation. I strive to provide the highest level and quality of care to all of my patients.

Dr. Corbett came highly recommended from the ER Doctor we saw. However, Dr. Corbett exceeded our expectations. She was from the beginning professional, polite, positive, and made me feel at ease about my condition and impending surgery. Her attitude and professionalism is so contagious that you even feel the healing begin before the procedure. She is definitely a top tier Surgeon and MD.

Fractured my ankle climbing Mt Everest (not true) I saw Dr Corbett on Tuesday 9th and she did surgery on the 10th. (9 screws/1 plate) She did an excellent job --I am very pleased.
in Folsom, LA |
Dr. Corbett came highly recommended to me by another MD at Ochsner. I underwent extensive corrective surgery of my plantar fasia that was basically "shredded" with Dr. Corbett. Dr. Corbett made sure that I totally understood the injury and the surgery that was needed to correct it. I had no problems with my recovery from the surgery and little to no pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Corbett to anyone who is having any foot or ankle problems as my experience with her has been great.

Diagnosed the problem right away

Horrible...the doctor that is, however, her staff is wonderful. Went into her office and she rushed through everything...said you just need to go see a specialist! They took x-rays and she said nothing there! Funny thing is that the radiologist sees a possible scaphoid fracture....mentioned that to the doctor and still refuses to do anything. Stay far away if you feel like you need a doctor
We are very concerned to hear about this encounter and truly apologize for your recent experience. Please email connect@ochsner.org with your phone number and the location where you were seen so we can have a patient relations liaison reach out to you personally. Thank you for your time.

Does not care about her patients, temperamental, no bedside manner. Do not let this doctor touch u. Will regret.
Thank you for this review. We're saddened to hear your experience was less than exemplary, and we'd like to have someone reach out to you personally. Please email us at connect@ochsner.org with your contact information so we can pass it along.

Dr. Corbett is an extraordinary lady. My wife was the patient & can be very difficult at times. Dr. Corbett answered all questions and explained the basics of the procedure. The surgery went quickly, no complications, quick recovery with Dr. Corbett checking her and the x-rays personally at each visit. Dr. Corbett is a total professional, a credit to Ochsner Orthopedics and the reason my wife can walk again. Thanks Doc, you are the best.

I talked with her maybe 3,4 minutes. I felt as if she could not wait to get out the room. She did not answer all of my questions and I felt hurried. If I ever see her again for anything maybe I should block the door so she cannot leave so quickly. I understand that doctors time with patients is limited due to the amount of charting that needs to be done because I am in the field; Dr. Corbett should at least fake it better when meeting with patients.
in Covington, LA |
She explained things thoroughly and was very patience when doing so. Always had a smile and was very non-rushed. Really enjoyed my experience with her.
in Bay Saint Louis, MS |
I really like Dr. Corbett and her staff. The Doc is really friendly and will answer all questions. I just liked her!
in New Orleans, LA |
Dr Corbett is an excellent diagnostician and surgeon. She treated me for ankle and foot issues and I found that her diagnosis was exact. Her treatment procedure was successful and I was completely satisfied with my entire outcome and experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Corbett to anyone, for foot and ankle issues and other orthopedic issues as well.
