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.

Outstanding appt. with Dr. Burns.

September 2023

It was our first time speaking with her. It was an intake parent assessment of issues that have been worrying me. Dr.Burns gave good initial advice and with followups I hope to get relief for my son's anxiety.
