I want to thank you and your qualified staff for the outstanding care that has been afforded me before, during and after my recent surgery by you. No other physician took the time and effort to pinpoint the source of my pains and believe me I have been to a lot of them. The surgery has made the conditions now tolerable and improved my quality of living, immensely. The quality of your service and surgery is REMARKABLE!!! I am just glad that your clinic is a part of my insurance network. I am forwarding them a copy of this as well and would highly recommend you to family, friends and my co-workers. Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

God was ever so merciful to bestow the blessing of healing upon you. The surgery was AWESOMELY successful that you and your staff performed. Along with my God, you are worthy as well to be praised for the healing that you did on my companion. The surgery was long, delicate and as you forewarned us, enduring to say the least. However, God saw fit to arm you and your staff with an outcome of success that has bought total relief as the ultimate prize for her. You have earned our respect, admiration and just our heartfelt THANKS!!! Your people are AWESOME, one and all.  We shall always be grateful to you and the staff.

Recently my wife’s life was changed for the better by a God sent man named Dr. Joseph B. Boucree, Jr. He performed a surgery that lasted almost 9 hours on her back. I did not want to travel the distance to Slidell for the surgery, however with him and the skilled and competent staff we are ever so glad we did. If we had it to do all over again, we would not hesitate to, again, as long as the procedure is done by Dr. Boucree. Dr. Boucree and his staff truly had the spirit of God and healing dwelling in them on that day. Thanks!!

I want to thank you, Dr. Boucree, your staff and assistants, as well as the hospital facility staff for treating me and taking care of me during my recent procedure there. Your uplifting spirit, humor, patient handling made a frightening and chaotic experience, very tolerable. My recovery is going quite well and I know had it not been for you, God and your staff all this would not be possible. May God continue to bless you with the blessing for healing.

In this world where medicine is now a business in which the bottom line is the dollar, not patient care and welfare, I am impressed and grateful of Dr. Boucree’s handling of his patients.
