Joseph, Jeffrey J MD FACS
My recent surgery was considered for a year before I scheduled a consultation with Dr Jeffery Joseph. He was so confident and very helpful during that initial consultation! I was so impressed with his recommendations and his confidence that I found myself quoting myself..." take heed of the one who is knowledgeable in his profession and consider that you are the one asking for his professional advise ."It did not take me long to schedule my surgery!!My experience with Dr Joseph was one of complete satisfaction. He and his team of support personnel are a joy. They provided wonderful service during the entire procedure and post visits. I can truly say that I was scared and prayed that I had made a proper decision to go forward with the surgery. I feel that my prayers were answered with a compassionate Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon in Dr Joseph. I am almost four weeks post surgery. Many , who are unaware of my surgery, have told me that I look rested or that I have lost weight that shows in my face. This is a testament to a skillful surgeon who subtly makes a positive change to an aging face!! I will recommend Dr Jefferey Joseph to anyone considering an enhanced look to their appearance! I thank him and his staff for a most pleasant experience at a most fretful crossroad in my life. Like 2

Dr. Debbie Mary Jurgelsky, MD
I've seen several doctors since I hit puberty due to female and fertility issues and I must say Doc is the best! When I first seen her I was in my late teens and I wasn't sure how I would feel having woman doctor as my OBGYN even though having a male doctor is also uncomfortable for a young adult but from the minute she walked into the exam room I have never felt more comfortable or received the kindness, compassion, and was able to relax and speak to a doctor as easy and understanding as Dr. Jurgelsky. When she moved out of the town I lived in I followed her to Lafayette, then for a short period she moved out of state but returned but it was few years before I found out she was back in Lafayette and after those few years of not seeing her when I did go back to her it was like she had never left and she always remembers the smallest things about her patients such as my hobbies, and that I wore green contact lens for a wedding I was serving in and asked me about it, etc. I just can't find the words or say enough to describe how wonderful she is as a doctor and a human being. I recommend her to anyone especially to all young adults/teenage girls when it's your first time seeing a OBGYN! You will not be disappointed.

Dr. Amanda Lemoine Alleyn, MD
I had her as my OB-GYN. She was awesome. She explained everything that I needed to know. Answered all of my questions, my blood pressure was always checked, and my labs where always reviewed. She was pregnant at the same time I was her patients also, she went for maternity leave, saw her partner who is great, then she came back. She had great bedside manners. For my delivery she was called in eventhough she was not on call. She delivered my daughter via c-section talking to my family and I the whole procedure. My scar is undetectable like my previous experience with another OB-GYN at another hospital. The reason why I switched to Amanda is because I was not even seen for a 6 week postpartum visit for my second child. I'm glad I made the change to Amanda!!!!!!

Castro-Quero, Julio, MD - Lafayette General Medical Center
When my wife had total hip replacement in 2015, the experience was wonderful. The doctors, nurses, and all employees were exemplary. We were both treated very well; she was kept comfortable, and the staff was caring and efficient. Our nephew, from Baton Rouge, is in there now after having very critical surgery, and he says he would much rather have medical care here than Baton Rouge; that the nurses and doctors were much better and more considerate. He said he will encourage all his friends and family to come here. Thank you, Lafayette General.

Southside Urgent Care
I went to this facility several months ago and was very happy with treatment, but I went today, on a Sunday morning, same as last time), and the facility was closed at 10am, even though the hours posted in the window showed that it opened at 9am and there was an Open sign in the window, and the hours posted on their website showed it to be open at 9am. I called on the phone from their parking lot twice and there was no answer, and I let the phone ring for 15 minutes while I drove to another clinic across town. "Urgent" care, this isn't.

You will wait a long time to see doctor Salmeron. He is polite and explains very well but the wait is ridiculous as in 2 hours long sometimes. On average you will wait at least an hour past your appointment time. Once I had a 4:30 and left at 6 with even seeing the doctor. The office had closed and I was forgotten about. There were no other patients there and only his nurse on the phone. He only comes in the office in the afternoon which makes for late appointments and long waits. I do like him though. Still going to change doctors.

Dr. Jaikishen Always puts the patient first. He also takes always the patients word at face value and looks into every single reason that the patient could be sick while staying as conservative as possible. Wouldn't go to anybody else. He Was able to diagnosis me with renal cell carcinoma at the age of 28 when NOBODY else could find ANYTHING wrong even though I was in terrible pain and had all the classic symptoms. He went ab over and beyond to find the cause. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend him!!!��������������������

Harper, Nicole P MD
Dr. Harper was quite fantastic for my visit. She answered every single one of my questions before she even started the exam. Then, after she was done she asked if I had anymore. She asked about my medical history and family as well. We went over a million pro/cons to different birth control options. The only downsize is the office is very busy and I had to wait awhile to be seen, but I did not feel rushed in my actual appointment.

I assisted my uncle during colonoscopy procedure and Crohn's flare. The Dr. was very patient, professional and attentive to his needs. The staff was excellent in all phases of patient care. Together they provided excellent care and comfort for my Uncle. I will continue using their services and recommend them highly.

We use the Stafford Clinic for our physical and immunizations when our family took an overseas assignment. Not only were they professional, friendly, and timely , they also offered quick assistance when we lost our immunization card while in Africa. We will use then again when we need physicals for work.
Tips & Advices
OB/GYNs learn to treat infertility as part of their standard education. OBGYNs who further their training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility are known as fertility specialists.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment where medication is used to replace hormones a woman's body does not create naturally. Women are prescribed either estrogen alone or a mix of estrogen and progesterone. The former is given to women who've had hysterectomies, while the latter is for postmenopausal women. HRT used to be a common treatment, but doctors have prescribed it less often in recent years, as concerns of negative side effects increased.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition where uterine tissue (endometrium) grows in areas outside the uterus. This can cause extreme pain, especially around menstruation and during sex. Other symptoms include infertility, chronic fatigue, and painful urination or bowel movements during menstruation. In addition, many women with endometriosis also have allergies, frequent yeast infections, or sensitivity to certain chemicals.
Morning sickness is a common pregnancy symptom that includes nausea and occasional vomiting. Despite its name, morning sickness can occur at any time of day. The exact reason for this condition isn't clear, although most believe it results from hormone changes affecting muscle contraction and relaxation in the stomach and intestines. Another theory suggests morning sickness is caused by an abundance of intestinal bacteria in pregnant woman.
OBGYNs can prescribe or perform the following types of birth control:
  • Contraceptive pills
  • Birth control shots
  • Implants
  • Diaphragms
  • Vaginal rings
  • Cervical caps
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomies
Women do not need to see an OBGYN to obtain over-the-counter forms of birth control such as male condoms, female condoms, or sponges.
