How likely are you to recommend Dr. Townsend?

(Select your rating)
I was seeing a well known psychiatrist at Tulane who was interested in testifying in legal proceedings and forgot about his patients. I was fortunate enough to have my regular doctor know someone at LSU who was able to get me in to see Dr. Townsend. He made a few changes to the medications I was taking and asked me to give it a couple of weeks. Two weeks later I saw him for a follow up and I felt like a new person. This psychiatrist knows what he is doing and puts his patients first.
