Close families share everything – meals, WiFi, memories - not to mention colds and flus. When you all come down with the same bug, wouldn’t it be great if you shared the same doctor? Family Medicine Physicians are specially trained to treat everyone in your family – from baby to great grandma and everyone in between.
Childhood illnesses, teenage development, gynecology, men’s issues, aging…Ochsner Family Medicine Physicians see it all. In doing so, we get the whole picture. We get to know you both as individuals and as a family. And what we learn can give us important insights into your health.
Why Choose Ochsner for Family Medicine?
Entrust Your Family to the Ochsner Family.
Ochsner has a large network of Family Medicine Physicians serving the South Shore, Northshore, West Bank, Baton Rouge, Mississippi Gulf Coast and Bayou Region. In addition, we’re backed by physicians in over 90 medical specialties and subspecialties. As members of the Ochsner family, Ochsner Family Physicians know who to turn to when specialty care is required.
Electronic medical records are another reason to choose an Ochsner Family Medicine doctor. If you or one of your kids is ever ill or in an accident and can’t answer a doctor’s questions, you can have peace of mind knowing the Ochsner ER physician can access your medical history electronically.
We are also making it easier to connect you to your family doctor at any time with MyOchsner. You can call or message their doctor, schedule appointments, submit refill requests for medication and schedule preventive health reminders. MyOchsner also allows you to view your child’s results and connect anyone else from your family to your child’s records and treatment team.
Connecting to care online has never been easier. You can now schedule virtual visits through your MyOchsner portal to meet with your child’s physician for various issues that do not require an in-person visit.
