Ochsner Patient Verified Reviews

To obtain patient ratings and comments, we partner with Press Ganey, an independent patient satisfaction company that works with more than 26,000 healthcare organizations to improve the patient experience. These patient verified ratings are based on the “likelihood to recommend” physician scores on the nationally developed Medical Practice Survey. Actual top box results for this question are translated to a 1-5 scale, and the star scores are measured on that scale, with 5 being the best score.

I will not see anyone different for neurology ever again. I have had headaches my entire life and seen by numerous neurologists over the years. He is by far the best and most caring.

I trust my care in Dr. Awad's hands. He tries his best to personally always see me as he's still trying to get to my root causes and explanations. He listens well and directs his staff to give the best care to his patients.
