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.

December 2023

I feel extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet with Dr Posas. He took the time to explain migraines to me on a level I could understand, as well as listened to my health history and concerns. He walked me through the best health care plan for my condition and provided a huge sense of relief in knowing that I finally had a doctor who listened, is extremely knowledgeable about my condition and cared about my well-being. I felt comforted knowing that if the health plan he chose did not work, I would be able to go back to him and he would work to help me find answers.
