This is the worst doctor's office I have ever dealt with. I am a healthcare professional and these people are just rude and demeaning esp secretary at the front desk. Just plain stupid. My 98 yr grandmother was turned around twice from this doctor's Office. The first time it was because she had no picture ID which she has never had in her life. Finally we got her one and had to reschedule appt which was two months later. My grandmother who is bed bound and very difficult to get into a car went for second visit and was turned around because she did not have insurance card with her Even when my sister verified her insurance over the phone the receptionist refused to talk to the representative. Not to mention my grandmother had been seen by this doctor before and has same insurance already on file. This was great inconvenience for my grandmother as well as other members of my family who had to take off work to transport her to the appt. I will never recommend this doctor and staff to any of my patients!!😡😡😡

She is the most thorough physician I have ever seen here in Lafayette, La. I value her as a doctor, advocate for my health in a general way. She treats the "whole" patient and her staff is very considerate and helpful. I am glad that I found her and plan to stay with her practice.
