Patient Review

"I am a patient of Dr. April Erwin. I found her nurse Tammy and Dr. Erwin to be very caring. They were attentive as well as intuitive. I assumed I knew what my issue was, Dr. Erwin assessed the information I gave her and decisively ordered the appropriate tests. She found the problem and it is being addressed appropriately. I will be forever grateful for her brilliance and her kind spirit. God has truly blessed her and her staff with a gift of healing, integrity and comfort. I would highly recommend to anyone in need of a neurologist. Her staff rocks! My experience with the doctors at The NeuroMedical has been phenomenal."

Rayne, LA

"I was diagnosed in 1998 with RRMS and the neurologist who diagnosed me was my neurologist for 18 years and took extremely good care of me. Imagine my fear when he informed me 'This visit will be my last visit with you Mrs. Thibodeaux. I am closing my practice and moving out of state.' He said not to worry--he had all my information going to the best neurologist he knew. And that neurologist was Dr. April Erwin and I am so happy he sent me to her. I'm absolutely satisfied with my care."
