Extended Hours for Primary Care Appointments

We have extended hours in many of our clinics and health centers to better serve you and to provide more appointment options for your busy schedule.  Some clinics and health centers now also offer weekend hours. If your usual doctor is unavailable for an urgent problem, please consider allowing us to book an appointment for you with another provider. You can also directly book an appointment online with your physician through your MyOchsner account.
