My mother died

My mother was frail from cancer and had low blood pressure before and after stent surgery. She died the next day. This guy should lose his license.

Great doctor!

I was treated by Dr. Etemad in 2003 and 2004 for pancreatitis caused by pancreas divisum when he was practicing at Oschner Medical Center in New Orleans. He was able to diagnose me when 2 other doctors had not been able to, and he remedied the problem. I am sorry to see that he is not in New Orleans any longer.

Extremely compassionate

My husband was diagnosed with esophageal Cancer . Dr Bob did his upper endoscopy both pre and post esophogectomy. He took much time with us throughout this time both in the office and via e-mail. I have been a nurse for >35 years and I have never met such a kind and caring physician. We feel very blessed to have had Dr Etemad on our team!!
