Patient Comments (1)
in St. Francisville, LA |
I have chronic illnesses requiring that I see numerous specialists. However, in the 20+ years that I've been her patient I've yet to find a better diagnostician. Nor have I found a more educational, caring or pleasant doctor and staff. You will be treated as if you are the only patient she has that day and will not leave until you and she have discussed every concern you have.
