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. 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.

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!!!��������������������

Laboarde Therapy Center
LaBorde Therapy Center is one of best therapy centers in Lafayette! The staff is extremely warm and personable and their front desk check in was always quick and prompt each morning i arrived. I came in with severe ankle and left feeling 100% after therapy there of the course of a couple of weeks. The therapists are very knowledgeable and we were able to walk me thru every step of my rehab process and it was extremely reassuring the way they did it to know i was in good hands! Thank you LTC!

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.

Some of the staff are extremely rude, and the wait time is ridiculous. Dr. leblanc was amazing, spent so much time discussung options, procedure, made follow up call, etc. Far exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend him; try to ignore 2-3 unprofessional staff members.
Tips & Advices
Scoliosis is a disorder where the spine curves sideways. Most people develop the condition during the growth spurt before puberty. The cause of scoliosis is unknown and most cases are mild, but the rare severe instances can disable a person.
Orthopedic surgeons attend four years of medical school, then four to five years of orthopedic residency in a hospital. They must also be licensed and certified in orthopedic surgery by the state in which they practice.
The terms "orthopedic doctor" and "orthopedic surgeon" refer to the same profession. Related specialties include podiatrist, a doctor who works with the bones, tendons and ligaments in the feet, and a sports medicine physician, a doctor specially trained to treat athletes.
The cost of a visit to an orthopedic surgeon depends on the type of tests ordered and treatment given. For example, an MRI costs $500-$1,300. An initial consultation costs $100- $500, while anesthesia for a procedure generally ranges from $2,000-$4,000. Overall, an orthopedic surgery can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000.
During a consultation or first appointment with an orthopedic surgeon, the practitioner will ask the patient a variety of questions to understand the situation. The surgeon might ask about the patient's pain levels, medical history, and any prior injuries. Then, the surgeon will administer a physical exam and possibly schedule tests to better understand the problem. Possible tests include a stress test, x-ray, or MRI.
