“Dr. Landreneau helped me when others said that I’m a lost cause. He performed a VATS ULL procedure and after a short period of time I healed perfectly with just a little nerve pain. The truth is that we waited a couple of hours to see him, but believe me I would go and wait again if needed because of my result. ”

“I had a procedure years ago and when I had questions Dr. Landreneau answered them. He moved out of the area and I hope he has returned so I can go back and visit him. ”
