"I love being a member of a large team of cardiologists who work well together and have a vast amount of experience to draw from.”

Dr. Wade May CIS- Lafayette, LA

"I started working with CIS Thibodaux in July 1995 right after my cardiology fellowship in Cleveland, and I am still here simply because the grass was greener here. The CIS organization saves the doctors all the hassle that we do not want to deal with. The fact that we doctors are the only shareholders of the company allows us to steer our efforts in the direction we feel best with the help of our strong management team. Our collective and individual success speaks for itself!”

Dr. Kenneth Wong CIS- Raceland, LA/Thibodaux, LA
