in New Orleans, LA |
Most arrogant doctor I have ever met. He refused to listen to my concerns. I spent months of losing weight and waking up in the middle of the night for hours at a time. He insisted my problems were anxiety. Even after I told him how much an antibiotic helped me, he chose to ignore me and continue insisting anxiety was the problem. Don't waste your time with him.

Dr. Awtrey is absolutely amazing. His bedside manner is the best out there. I honestly feel like he cares about me and what I experience. His office staff is above amazing as well.
