Dr. Guarisco was completely insensitive about my IBS issues I've had since I was 16, I'm now 44! All he wanted to do was a colonoscopy and pretty much shut down completely after that. Very discouraging visit to say the least.
Thank you for this review. We're saddened to hear your experience was less than exemplary, and we'd like to have someone reach out to you personally. Please email us at connect@ochsner.org with your contact information so we can pass it along.

Since I was seeing Dr. Guarisco for the FIRST time, I was expecting a more comprehensive visit. He seemed to be rushed and spent little time asking questions. Essentially wrote me a prescription and was on his way. Not the kind of doctor I need or want.
Thank you for this review. We're very sorry about your experience, and we'd like to have someone reach out to you personally. Please email us at connect@ochsner.org with your contact information so we can pass it along.

This doctor didn't want to be bothered with me or my medical issues. I was only able to talk to the NP. Turns out my issues were life threatening and required multiple surgeries. No compassion.
