First I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis for almost 25 years, when I moved to this area I looked for a RA physician & checked reviews. The First Dr I saw in Baton Rogue. He was very rude, acted like I had... more no idea about my disease & treated me like all I wanted was pain meds. The funny part I only asked to be put back on Celebrex and then he decided without any consideration or consultation with me that he was going to stop my meds I had been on for 10+ years. On top of that he was not going to put me on an6 medications at all.
I have never been treated so terribly & rudely in my life. I left in tears. I am a nurse and would never treat my patient like that
I luckily found Dr Gauthier. He has been so attentive to my care & my medications. His staff is so very sweet.
A year & a half ago I fell at home one night. I went to an ER & all I was told was it wasn't broke but had a large pocket a fluid on top of my right hand. 3 months later I saw Dr Gauthier for my routine visit and he ordered a MRI immediately. Before I had it I was at work and felt something snap in my wrist then my pinky & ring finger would no longer move. I had MRI called Dr Gauthier & was called immediately to come in. I saw Dr Gauthier then 10 mins later I was seeing Dr Dudoussat and being scheduled for surgery the next day I had completely ruptured (tore) my tendons. Then had rehab with a Mandy and her partner.
I have been treated so very very wonderful.
I'm sorry some are disappointed about not having coffee & having to wait in ER
These negative reviews on here are a joke. The whiners on here must have never experienced a terrible sickness before. Well I have, I came to this hospital with meningitis and was hospitalized for 4 days... more here. The staff was superb! They actually care about their patients. They go above and beyond to meet their needs. It's ashame that most of the negative reviewers can't be pleased even if they had the best care in the world. It's also ashame that people who come on here to read reviews, don't get to see the great experiences other patients have had simply because their reviews don't get written. Most people usually come on here to complain not to rejoice. I actually was sent here from Denham Springs La. by accident because of no bed availability in BR. Best accident ever. Best hospital by far. Thank you again North Oaks! If me or my family ever need medical attention again, we won't hesitate to get on I-12 and come ur way!
UPDATE: If I could give zero stars, I would. I went here recently for a second degree burn on my hand at 5am, was the only person in the emergency room, and it still took 45 minutes to see me. When they... more did call me back, the nurse who took my info was loudly chewing and popping his gum right near my ear, and the one who took my vitals looked almost annoyed that I was taking up his time. Finally, after waiting another hour to see a doctor, he sent in a nursing student to clean and bandage my burns, but she was so rough and careless with it that I ended up cleaning it and bandaging it a second time when I got home. Their emergency department is terribly run and filled with staff that make it clear they don't want to be there and they don't want you there. While the ladies at the front desk are very sweet, it doesn't make up for the treatment (or lack thereof) that you'll get here.
(happened Oct. 2015)unprofessional, money grubbing, lousy hospital. doctors seem more concerned with the weather than they do with the actual patients, and spend only a few minutes with you before "diagnosing" you with some generic illness. nurses are rude and unprofessional. I spent 6 months trying to work out my finances with them. The next hospital is thirty minutes in either direction on I-12- trust me, try your luck with either of them before you go to north oaks. They'll waste your money and your time.
