    My wife and I had to select a new PCP due to changes in our insurance. We ultimately made the selection to see Dr. Long. He made us feel very comfortable, did an extensive review of our health and we were thoroughly satisfied with our experience with Dr. Long and his staff. We Highly recommend Dr. Long

    in Ponchatoula, LA |
    Excellent bedside manner!!! Always makes me feel at ease to talk to him about anything. Always answers any questions I have. I never feel rushed, he takes his time and listened to everything that I say! He's an amazing Dr.

    Dr Long answered our after hours call promptly on a Sunday and got us in on Monday despite a full schedule. He spent a lot of time with us and I was very pleased with the care my daughter received.

    Dr. Long listens first- and involves you in the diagnosis. How often can you say that about a doctor? Dr. Long doesn't just treat the symptoms and send you quickly on your way; he spends an appropriate amount of time and works to heal you as a whole. Doctors can't always fix us; Dr. Long is humble enough to say that- and then use the best practices he can to mitigate the symptoms. He also takes his medicinal skills to other countries that aren't as fortunate as we are- Amazing gentleman.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
