I was a long term patient (also a medical professional) of this doctor when he first started his practice in Opelousas. He left his practice there to work as a ER physician., then started a practice in Port Barre, La. He now has recently moved his practice back to Opelousas which I was very happy to hear about until I called to make an appointment to see him. I was asked for a medical history over the phone from a receptionist, then told I would receive a phone call back only to be told that this MD decided that he was no longer accepting new patients!! Why was I not told this prior to giving my health history to a stranger! Good to know that this MD is screening who he wants to treat instead of following the oath he took to treat the sick. And yes I do work and have medical insurance so that was not the issue. If I could have given "0" stars I would have.

These people are rude and turned away my young children before even meeting them. I disclosed that my son is a genius and has seen a specialist in the past but only needed a regular physician for well appointments. They said they couldn't see my kids because of this; when I started crying they said that I was a problem and not a good fit. I said I was just upset because they were turning away innocent, healthy children, and it wasn't right.

Do not come here ever. The daily management is non- existant. Everyday is chaos, confusion, and unorganization. They could care less about the residents. All they care about is getting your rent money. The brochure lies about everything.
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.
