I could not ask for a better doctor. He is always there for me when I am in need and does not hesitate to help in any way that he can. He has made a difference in my life and words cannot describe how much I appreciate him. He is awsome!

I’ve never had a problem with Dr. Dammers. A couple of years ago, I left Dr. Dammer’s office because his nurse was absolutely terrible. She never answered the phone, returned calls or relayed messages to Dr. Dammers. I returned about six months ago and he now has a wonderful, kind nurse. The only issue I have is he wants you to come back in a month and his next opening is three to four months away.

Dr. Dammers is by far the best medical professional I have ever worked with. I've seen him for last five years. He's truly been instrumental in improving and stabilizing my mental health. Not only that, he is genuine and compassionate and always lends an ear. His nurse Mandy is great as well! I highly recommend working with him if you have the opportunity.

Dr. Dammers is one of my favorite doctors. He has been so helpful in the care of my husband, Robin who has dementia. I am so thankful to have his expert medical guidance. My husband is doing much better because of the medicines that Dr. Dammers prescribed.

This man does not care about the Well Being of Patients. I missed one appointment due to work, and he dismissed me. What I did not know at the time, by being dismissed, I can no longer see any Neuropsychologist with the Neuromedical Center according to Administration. Shocking that they would allow Mr. Dammers to have this level of Influence in the Well Being of any Individual. So, if you make a decision to see the man, please do not miss an Appointment!

Cant say enough good things about Dr. Paul Dammers. His staff was very accommodating working with my schedule, Dr Paul was spot on with his diagnosis with me, the treatment he prescribed showed immediate results . His initial interview (and subsequent) were very detailed, in depth and thorough. I certainly appreciate we have doctors like Dr Paul in the Baton Rouge area, was actually a joy to meet him and get the help he provided . Thank You Dr. Dammers. Wish survey had provided 10 STAR choices

My dad is suffering with Alzheimer's. My sister and I have been driving him to his Dr. appointments for about 3 years. Through dealing with this horrible disease, we have seen a few different doctors. Dr Dammers has done a great job of evaluating our unique situation and has advised us and prescribed medication to control the unbelievable mood swings that my dad has. He is very understanding and professional. We highly recommend him. Mike Fulmer

Dr dammers took time to not only address my concerns I had for this visit but delved into other issues that needed to be addressed. I felt immediately comfortable with him and appreciated the time and care he provided. I will be coming to dr dammers for future visits and and testing His staff - Mandy in particular - has been wonderful in addressing concerns and questions about medications and other questions since the initial visit which involved reviewing my records with the doctor

Dr. Dammers accepted my daughter's case recently. Her case is very complex as it concerns one psychiatric diagnosis plus a need for determination of a secondary diagnosis. He is professional, listened intently to our concerns and asked pertinent questions. He spent an entire hour with me, my daughter and her siblings. He formulated a plan of care for her which he gave to me before we left. I highly recommend him.

Dr Dammers listens, understands and then prescribes any needed meds. He has always spent time with me until he understood what my issues were. I would never go to another dr because he understands my issues and he cares about my future decisions.

Well worth the wait to see someone board-certified housed in a neuroscience speciality group. Once you are an established pt. there is never a problem getting follow-up care, and ph. calls are returned same day.

It took months and months to be seen. His choice in Meds was all wrong for me from the get go and, apparently he keeps a running tab on how many times you call, cancel, change or delay his office. Patients beware...you will invest more time just waiting on an initial appointment with him than, he will ever show you any flexibility. He will refuse to treat you as a patient in a heartbeat!!
