Ratings for Dr. Joel Laborde
MD practice spends too much time with drug reps slowing down patients waiting for appointments. I have visited twice and waited 60-90 minutes on both occasions while arriving 15 minutes ahead of my appointment time. Once in with Dr Laborde - everything is wonderful. He is knowledgeable, caring, confident. In other words he is worth the wait but as a working person, unless I can figure out a way to get quicker access to him (first AM appt or first after lunch appt) I may reluctantly have to look elsewhere for medical care. 3.5 hours away from work is no practical for what was 5-10 minutes with the Doc.
Dr. Laborde is the best doctor I have ever had. He is so thorough- he WILL find out what the problem is even if it takes 50 tests! He is wonderful - Always remembers our names,everything about us- everything about our children... He is wonderful!
The office is super busy. Too many patients, he was 90 minutes late to my appt. He does answer your questions and he takes a thorough medical history, though -- he is very bright. But the nurses are back logged and the staff is not the best. I only see him when I absolutely have to.
