Patient Comments (10)
in New Orleans, LA |
Great doctor. Very efficient. I went for a colonoscopy screening. Only two short visits needed. One day was a preop, the second day was the procedure. He got in and out in no time... He gave me the results immediately after I woke up. I’ll plan to see him for my next colonoscopy.
La Place, LA |
I felt comforted after seeing him. He assured me he could help and I believed him. As we were talking about my symptoms, he mentioned some I left off my list so he knew exactly what I was experiencing. That was such a comfort....he knew....and understood. Apparently he has had a lot of experience with my problem, and that's what I need...someone who knows what to do to help me.

Scheduling was easy, while timeliness was reasonable in the wait (15 min.). For my first visit with Dr. Carriere Jr. - finally a Dr. With a good personality and understanding. Great approach and logical responses. Would recommend without a second thought!

Dr. Carriere took care of my 84 year old father, who happens to be a real pain when it comes to seeing a doctor, and he was able to take care of him with out too much problems. Dr. Carriere was kind and made my father feel good about his problem. I would refer Dr. Carriere to anyone that needed a doctor.
