Couldn't agree more about this guy

Everyone is right about this doctor. I went to see him and first thing he scheduled was a colonoscopy and endoscopy. Then, never heard back from him on anything. He did not make any diagnosis nor cared to. He just wanted the procdure money. Don't use this doctor.

One Star

After my treatment I got to see my medical records. He performed a proceedure that another doctor stated was unnecessary. During the proceedure an error was made. By the time I realized this the two year limit for medical malpractice had passed.

WORSE experience EVER! DO NOT see him!

Do not go to see this doctor ever! He came to my appt. and told me "I didnt even open your chart to see what's your medical condition or your lab results, procedures etc. and Im not going too". Dr. Provenza is Unprofessional, Inaccurate in diagnosing a problem, doesn't know what he is talking about! Save your money and see someone else!

Pick another doctor if possible

I saw dr. provenza for problems with nausea and vomiting. He barely spoke to me (less than 5 minutes) the first time I met with him. He did tests and barely explained what he found in the report, I found out everything from the nurse. I know that he is busy, but you would think he would at least spend 2 minutes explaining the results! If this is the best shreveport has to offer then I believe I should move elsewhere!
