Primary Care

Doctors don’t just make you well – they strive to keep you from getting sick in the first place. The goal of the Ochsner Primary Care team is to be there for you when you’re under the weather, and to help you be the healthiest you the rest of the time.

Top Doctors. More Coordination. Better Resources.

One huge advantage of having a primary care doctor at Ochsner is our electronic medical record. Wherever you go in the Ochsner network, your medical history goes with you and is accessible by specialists, urgent cares and ERs all across the Gulf South. With our technology, diagnoses can be made more quickly, and there is a better chance that the team is making the right decision.

Ochsner is better connected and has better tools. That can mean the difference between life and death.

Your Primary Care Team

Ochsner is configured as a patient centered medical home model, and is committed to providing patients with comprehensive medical care at a higher quality and lower cost. Your dedicated medical team includes your primary care physician, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, medical assistants, diabetic educators, dietitians, pharmacists and care coordinators.

We also have social workers on staff who can set up home health services, get you the home equipment you need, find you a support group, if needed, and more.  

At Ochsner, your Primary Care team will monitor and track your health over time.  We’ll help you lead a healthy lifestyle and watch for issues or changes that need to be addressed.
