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.

Dr Leslie and his staff are exceptional. I only wish that was the case with my other interactions with Ochsner, especially cardiology.

Dr. Leslie was personable and professional. He explained my imaging and what could be contributing to my condition. I appreciate how he explained medication and treatment options, as well as how long to expect to wait before the next step.

Dr Leslie is great! He's very concerned and friendly! I was going to the wrong site for my visit. Called and the receptionist told me where I should be because I couldn't get it on my phone because I was driving. She assured me that she would make the call and tell them that I was on my way! That was amazing! She was amazing!

Dr. Leslie handled my hip issues with routine exercises, and it worked very well. After many weeks of doing the exercises, my hip muscles have strengthened, and I am no longer in pain.
