If you are lucky enough to be in the area Dr. Gautam is the absolute best! We lived in Delcambre and didn’t mind the drive because she’s just so great. She truly cares about your health, mental and physical, and really gets to know you and your family.
She is easy to talk to and she listens to you. Takes her time and never seems in a rush. She's honest and not going to prescribe something you don't need or want. Also, wait times are short. I'm so glad my wife and I found her.
Dr. Gautam takes the time necessary to diagnose and treat patients. She does not 'skirt around' the truth, she is direct. I have always felt I am able to communicate effectively with her. She is a great teacher and a very caring doctor.
Caring doctor who truly is knowledgeable in her field! She takes her time and listens to you and makes sure you have the best quality care. Dr. Gautam is an outstanding physician. Thanks Dr. Gautam for being so special!
She has been a god sent to my self and husband as well as other family members we have sent to her. Her knowledge and understanding is beyond the professional care. She listens and fully explains the best way to a healthy lifestyle.
