Patient Comments (1)
in St Bernard, LA |
Very best primary care physician that I have ever had. I got her by accident after Katrina when Dr. Olivier could not accept me and I am not giving her up. Her personality shines through and her assistants mimic her great attitude. She has always gone above and beyond in assisting me with my medical needs. I just hope she does not retire before I die. I am spoiled for any other doctor.
