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.

Very Good! Dr. Mixon provides lots of positive support for my husband and I. Talking with him makes us both feel better about the way we our handling things with our child and that if we can't do a specific treatment option that there are other things we can do to help our child be happy and healthy and on the road to living her best life.
