Watkins Family Medicine
Dr. Watkins has been my family doctor for several years now, and honestly I've spent too much time and money on specialists when I could have ONLY been treated by him alone. His knowledge on so many areas amazes me. He has diagnosed issues on first visits that even specialists were stumped with. In addition, he returns calls personally when I have a question, rather than having a nurse relay answers or messages. The office is always immaculately kept, and his staff is always polite and welcoming. I'd never go anywhere else. The service of this medical practice is top notch! I noticed a review from 2012 about an employee who was always rude or short-spoken. I honestly can't fathom the thought of that type of employee ever being employed at that office. The work atmosphere simply isn't that type of environment. I doubt seriously that Dr. Watkins or his wife would ever tolerate that type of culture in their practice. It just isn't their style.

I like the way they help by finding an address with all your data available, it is very comfortable and flexible the way it operates, I'm glad to know that if you need a fast address you can only rely on this application.

Terrebonne General Medical Center
My sister-in-law came to this hospital because of no blood circulation in her lower right leg and foot. Doctors in New Orleans cut off a portion of her right big toe because of infection and then realized there was no blood flow so they wanted to cut off her leg to the knee. Finally Dr. Walker at TGMC was recommended to her to restore the blood flow to her foot. She had this procedure done and now the circulation has been restored. Her experience with Dr Walker and the staff at TGMC was wonderful. They were very caring and open-minded. We will always be grateful for them.

I've never had anyone there be rude to me. Usually I'm in a room and seen within 5-10 min of signing in. Friendly, casual atmosphere, good music while waiting

Shawny was wonderful and Dr. Falgoust was so professional.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
