He is rude., impatient, and self-centric, which resulted in me going misdiagnosed for 9 months with trigeminal neuralgia until I was properly diagnosed and treated with MVD! I would recommend another doctor before him!
Hi, Jamie. We are very concerned to hear about this encounter and truly apologize for your recent experience. Please email connect@ochsner.org with your phone number and the location where you were seen so we can have a patient relations liaison reach out to you personally. Thank you for your time.

Lots of credentials. Very uncaring. He dropped by in street clothes at Ochsners, four hours after her admission, for my wife's serious, life threatening symptoms. Made a few physical and mental tests for her while she was so doped up by the hospital that she couldn't understand, much less perform the tasks, mentally or physically. Made no diagnosis and said he would provide a solid diagnosis the next day. Well, the next day, he did not come back, called to release her. Never returned.
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.
