Dr. Duplechain is absolutely always professional, kind, and very compassionate. Leslie his nurse made me feel so comfortable and her personality made me feel relaxed. The facility is clean and everyone is top notch. From Ms Yvette the receptionist smiling and small talk at 6am was also reassuring that I chose the right place. Thanks for a pleasant experience.

The entire staff are polite, professional and helpful. I have been to Dr Charles Monier for years and I truly respect his professionalism and his advice. He has always been honest and upfront with his diagnosis . I highly recommend him to anyone having digestive problems. I have recently been to the nurse practitioner Katie Hebert and truly love and respect her diagnosis and advice. When Dr Monier is not there she is truly a blessing.

Dr. Justin Toups is an amazing physician. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable and kind to all his patients, he listens to your concerns and offers solutions to medical issues they are experiencing. His compassion for his patients is evident in his care for each one of them. I would highly recommend him for your physician if you are in need of a gastroenterologist.

Most of us know we all dredge when it’s time for our colonoscopy! But I can assure the staff (front desk, nurses, Anesthesiologist and Dr Monier) listen to your concerns and make you feel so comfortable prior and after the procedure. Dr Monier greets you with his smile and professionalism before and afterwards. Would definitely recommend him. Five stars to Thibodaux Digestive Health Center !!!!!
