About Your First Visit
Your first visit with the doctor will serve as a consultation. The doctor will review your medical record (past and present), and perform an exam. You will be given the opportunity to ask any medical questions or voice any concerns you may have.
We are an independent practice presently located within the hospital at Willis-Knighton Pierremont, top floor (Suite 970 on the 9th floor). Our street address is 8001 Youree Drive, Suite 970, Shreveport, Louisiana 71115. Please click on Contact Us above to get in touch with us.

What to Bring to Your First Visit
1) FORMS: Download, print and complete the PDF forms available here. Please include all of your doctors' full names, address, phone, fax and specialty.
2) INSURANCE PLANS: You must present your insurance card at the time of your appointment. Our office will make a copy of the card for our records so that we can file on your insurance. We cannot file your insurance without your card.
3) REFERRAL NUMBER: If insurance requires a referral number from your primary care doctor, it is your responsibility as the patient to obtain this number and forward it to our office before your appointment date. You may have the number faxed to our office at 318-797-7608. If you are unsure if your insurance requires a referral number or want to know what a referral is, please contact your insurance carrier. They can provide a detailed explanation.
Thank you for your cooperation in trying to help make your appointment a pleasant experience with us.
