Covington, LA |
For a first time visit, he seemed to be in a hurry. Didn't explain much. Not a satisfactory visit!
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.

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.
|
Although I'm set up online w/Ochsner to view test results online, I visited w/*Dr. Guarisco to ask more questions and review/explore options. He's a GREAT listener and geared his review of options to my concerns and preferences. This is what I believe makes a great physician.
