in Denham Springs, LA |
Dr. Hixon saved my daughter's life. She was in her teens and in the Pediatric ICU of Our Lady of The Lake Hospital for 8 days. There were many specialists working on her case and trying to save her life. Dr. Hixon was there from the beginning. After leaving the hospital, he became her cardiologist. He is an EXCELLENT doctor and should be given only 5 stars by everyone. Good doctors who truly care are very hard to find. Unlike other doctors, he treats patients with compassion, kindness, and hope.
