Why Choose Ochsner Health for Your Primary Care?

Primary care at Ochsner makes preventing and managing chronic diseases easier in the long term. The role of our primary care team is to be your first point of contact whenever a health issue arises. An adult’s primary care doctor may be a family medicine or internal medicine doctor. Pediatricians and family medicine doctors can provide primary care for children. Ochsner has the full range of highly trained primary care doctors available to be involved in your care. Our team works together to help you reach your health goals more easily. You’ll have access to a large network of subspecialists within Ochsner to get you just the right care.

Our care delivery approach allows us to coordinate care to help make reaching your health goals easier. Along with our advanced practice providers — nurse practitioners and physician assistants — Ochsner’s primary care practices allow you to see members of your care team if your primary care doctor is unavailable. You also have access to an expansive network of subspecialists within Ochsner to assist with any procedures or specialized care you may need. This availability means more appointment times are available to have you seen faster.

In many Ochsner primary care clinics, a licensed clinical counselor or clinical social worker can provide cognitive behavioral therapy (talk therapy). We also have diabetes educators, nutritionists and smoking cessation counselors.

At Ochsner, all our doctors can offer virtual appointments when coming into the office is not required, saving you time and effort. But our digital medicine capabilities go beyond telehealth visits. Our primary care teams include a health coach and a pharmacist who use digital tools, such as wireless blood pressure and blood sugar monitors, to track patients’ health progress and adjust medications as needed without the need for extra office visits. Health coaches can also make personalized recommendations about diet and exercise. This frequent contact with team members helps keep you motivated and on track.

Louisiana has consistently been one of the states with the lowest health rankings in the country for more than 10 years. Our primary care program aims to change that through our Healthy State program.

Our goal is to work toward a healthier Louisiana. We want to improve the overall health of our communities by screening more people for cancer and chronic diseases and getting more members of our communities vaccinated against infectious diseases. We also want to ensure everyone in our region has access to a primary care doctor who can help them achieve their health goals.

A comprehensive program for adults over 65, Ochsner 65 Plus offers customized primary care, nutrition and fitness coaching and community events.
