Dr. Hemelt's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Hemelt "I have been serving the wonderful people of Slidell since 2000. Originally from New Orleans, attended LSU Baton Rouge (Geaux Tigers!), LSU School of Medicine for my medical degree and then 4 year residency at Ochsner in Ophthalmology. I began private practice in Slidell just after finishing up my residency and have enjoyed this great community and the people that make it a wonderful place to live and work. As a general ophthalmologist, I am well equiped to handle all eye problems from glasses to intricate eye surgery. I concentrate my surgical practice on cataract surgery and laser refractive surgery (LASIK), but also spend a fair amount of time performing plastic surgery on the eyelids."

My husband and I were New patients today.. The entire staff was very pleasant to speak with and Dr. Hemelt was not rushed, he took his time to speak with us and answer all of our questions. Plan on bringing my two children to see him next.
