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. Hitch is heaven sent. One of the best doctors Ive known. She's very attentive and takes her time. We never feel like she's rushing to move to the next patient like other doctor's do.

I walked out the appt and called my mom with the information given and told her I loved this doctor because of the knowledge and care she showed us.

October 2023

Dr. Hitch listened to everything we told her including previous visits with other providers and appreciated the efforts we had been trying. Rather than tell us we were doing a good job or to keep what was not working she gave new suggestions and a plant that we have already seen improvement through.
