Love Dr Lindsey and nurse Shay. They are awesome. They listen to your needs and make sure your health care needs are met.
in Prairieville, LA |
I've seen Dr. Lindsey since 2009, after being diagnosed with a rare disease. I was so sick that no one knew whether or not I would improve. Without his support during this time, I'm not sure what may have happened. I continue to see him every 3 months, and I can always count on him to patiently listen and offer excellent advice.
