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.

November 2023

Dr. Algu is always super responsive to my questions and when he is unsure of something (like the availability of the RSV vaccine) he searches out the answer for us. He also has wonderful bedside manner. We initially planned to see another pediatrician at Oschner, but have decided to start seeing him instead as we really appreciate his care during visits.

November 2023

I didn't have any problems to discuss regarding my son this visit. However, Dr. Algu has been thoughtful when there were issues. He's always let my husband and I talk to explain what's going on/our fears before providing his thoughts/plans for handling our concern.
