Primary Care Plus values patient care over patient count.
Primary Care Plus is an affiliate of Peoples Health, a New Orleans-based, physician-owned Medicare Advantage plan. Established in 1994, Peoples Health provides benefits and services to over 55,000 Medicare beneficiaries in southeast Louisiana with the mission to provide high-quality, cost-effective healthcare services.
Primary Care Plus shares that mission and is committed to providing proactive, personalized healthcare to all patients, to not only treat their medical problems but to keep them healthy and help them feel well cared for at all times. The physicians and staff at Primary Care Plus locations proudly serve patients in the Baton Rouge and Greater New Orleans communities. A comprehensive expansion plan includes the launch of several additional office locations in 2014 and beyond.
The Primary Care Plus model of care uses a comprehensive team approach to treat injury, illness, and chronic health conditions. Our goal is to help patients effectively manage their health through proactive guidance and prevention strategies. As a physician, your success is measured by positive outcomes and patient satisfaction – not by the volume of patients seen.
