Dr Nuss info

I originally called to get an appointment with Dr. Nuss and was referred to Stephen Hernandez and I made appointment. I’ve read on the site Nuss has experience and has has great results . He also performs external approach and Hernandez does not . So I researched found another Doctor in Nola that does External Dr. Celestre and made an appointment . Strange thing today out of the blue I get a call from Dr. Nuss nurse asking if I would like to make an appointment and he still treats and does surgery . Currently I have appointments with all three and I’m thinking I may go to all of them to hear what they have to say …??

I think seeing all three is a great plan! We definitely endorse getting a second opinion whenever possible as you may feel much more comfortable w/ one surgeon’s approach & personality than another’s.

I’m really glad to hear Dr. Nuss is back to taking ES patients. That will be helpful to our members who live in your area.

Will be interesting to see what Dr Nuss says!

Hi Tim I am glad you got in with them! How long did it take to get the appointments with them? I’m looking at bare minimum a month before my first appointment with Dr Hepworth thats in Denver. I’m from the Gulf area so Baton Rouge/NOLA is only a few hours away and would be way better than driving 20 hours.

Haven’t heard from you in awhile. How did your appointments go? Do you have surgery scheduled or have you had surgery? I hope all is well!
