Complete Care to Help You Maintain Good Health

At Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport, we take a comprehensive medical approach to care for your entire family. From infants, children of all ages and young adults to adults, our Primary Care team provides lifestyle management, care for your common cold, management of chronic illnesses and everything in between.

Three Reasons You Need a Primary Care Doctor

Having a primary care doctor is important to both your health and finances. The three top reasons you need to have a primary care doctor are:

  • Regular visits can lower health costs
  • Coordination of care
  • Chronic issue management

The entire primary care team — which includes our primary care doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, medical assistants, diabetic educators, dietitians, pharmacists and care coordinators — is here to help you get the care you need. By living a healthy lifestyle, getting regular exams and addressing any issues that arise with your primary care team, you and your doctor can monitor your health over time and be more aware of when small changes may be signs of larger problems.

If you develop a condition that requires specialized treatment, your primary care doctor can refer you to an Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport specialist. This doctor will have access to your entire medical history through our electronic medical record system, MyChart, to help make the best possible choices about your care.
