Five Stars

Dr. Koppel is the best dermatologist ever! I have been going to him for a long time and he has not misdiagnosed me once. He cleared up my acne in two weeks and I would recommend him to all of my friends! He is also kind and caring and seems to always put me at ease.

Dr, K is the best!

Dr. Rene is the best dermatologist in New Orleans, hands down. His office staff couldn't be nicer. As for the guy who forgot his insurance card, get a life moron! Doctors have bills to pay too!

Does Not Respect or Trust Patients

Doctor refused to see me because I forgot my insurance card. I had the insurance company on the phone and they wanted to tell them that they authorize the visit and will pay, but the receptionist refused to talk to them. This doctor's office is all about the money, not relieving suffering.
