My last laboratory testing service was not the best experience. They were not very insightful or reassuring. When I learned about Louisiana Internal Medicine & Pediatric Associates, I gave them a try and I do not regret it one bit. They are great!

I dreaded my treadmill stress test but Dr. Tasha Shamlin was very reassuring that it wouldn’t be too difficult. Her team helped me get situated and the process wasn’t as bad as I had feared. I loved going there and look forward to be next appointment.
