Dr. Edward Schwartzenburg
I must tell you---I have been one of Dr. Ellis Schwartzenburg's patients for over 2 decades. I have found his office staff is courteous, thorough, professional. What would you expect me to say? Of course they are all of those but because the work for the Drs. Schwartzenburg they have taken a cue from his playbook. Dr. Ellis Schwartzenburg and his staff are kind, courteous, gentle, compassionate, co-operative, understanding, thorough and genuinely concerned about each and every patient they see. From the first day I met "Dr. Ellis" I have found him to be remarkably compassionate and gentle. The staff go out of their way to put you at your ease and make every effort to schedule an appointment in a timely fashion. "Dr. Ellis" is aligned with Woman's Hospital of Baton Rouge and he performed the much needed surgery in a timely manner.I find "Dr. Ellis" a credit to every medical professional I have ever met. He is truly concerned and genuinely compassionate about meeting his patients needs. I am a better person for having met him and he will continue to be my OBGYN until one of us dies. (I would say until one of us retires but I retired last year.) ;-) To "Dr. Ellis" I would say only this----See you in July.

I would recommend Dr. Bourgeois, she is very easy to talk to and to understand. The waiting time was not long, which is why I switched from my former obgyn. The staff was nice and also welcoming.

Tips & Advices
OB/GYNs learn to treat infertility as part of their standard education. OBGYNs who further their training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility are known as fertility specialists.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment where medication is used to replace hormones a woman's body does not create naturally. Women are prescribed either estrogen alone or a mix of estrogen and progesterone. The former is given to women who've had hysterectomies, while the latter is for postmenopausal women. HRT used to be a common treatment, but doctors have prescribed it less often in recent years, as concerns of negative side effects increased.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition where uterine tissue (endometrium) grows in areas outside the uterus. This can cause extreme pain, especially around menstruation and during sex. Other symptoms include infertility, chronic fatigue, and painful urination or bowel movements during menstruation. In addition, many women with endometriosis also have allergies, frequent yeast infections, or sensitivity to certain chemicals.
Morning sickness is a common pregnancy symptom that includes nausea and occasional vomiting. Despite its name, morning sickness can occur at any time of day. The exact reason for this condition isn't clear, although most believe it results from hormone changes affecting muscle contraction and relaxation in the stomach and intestines. Another theory suggests morning sickness is caused by an abundance of intestinal bacteria in pregnant woman.
OBGYNs can prescribe or perform the following types of birth control:
  • Contraceptive pills
  • Birth control shots
  • Implants
  • Diaphragms
  • Vaginal rings
  • Cervical caps
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomies
Women do not need to see an OBGYN to obtain over-the-counter forms of birth control such as male condoms, female condoms, or sponges.
