He is very knowledgeable and very smart doctor in his field..He example to you what's going on with you and what you need to do to help yourself..Nice man and a nice doctor ..
|
during this visit the doctor seemed on he was interested and I felt like I was wasting his time. He stretched, yawned, looked out the window, and looked at his watch. As I result I felt like I didn't give him all the information that I should have. I almost felt like he was questioning me as a hostile witness. Wish I could see another doctor but it took me a month to get that appointment and I desperately need care now. On the test results survey he ordered the tests that day so no, no test results were given. Staff was wonderful, office was clean, service was prompt.

Very good experience. Hospital follow-up. Provider was very attentive.
|
Have not had any problems with any of the doctors I see at Ochsner on O'neal.
