Dr. Deeney is a remarkably talented, caring, and responsive physician. She is truly a gift to our family. She provides wonderful care, and we hope she remains at Ochsner to continue to provide care to our children. Her generous and informed approach to medical care is not an easy combination to find, and her dedication to her patients is outstanding.

Dr. Deeney, is very knowledgeable, professional and sweet to my kiddos. I feel lucky to have found her on a whim. The office isn't new or beautiful...but the care is top notch and I'd highly recommend her.
