Meet Brobson Lutz, M.D.
What kinds of medicine have you practiced since graduating? Where have you been?
Internal medicine and infectious disease. Since Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the subsequent downsizing of what was once the renown Southern Baptist Hospital, I have devoted most of my patient care to primary care internal medicine. Dr. Kenneth Combs and I first opened our uptown New Orleans office on Napoleon Avenue in 1978. We continued the practices of Dr. Sam Hobson and Dr. Joe Wells who had been internists in the area for decades.
What do you like to do when you are not at the office?
Take care of my chickens, pigeons, fruit trees, and other crops all located on urban farming plots in uptown New Orleans. I also enjoy the foods of New Orleans. My favorite restaurants are Galatoires, Fury’s, Crescent City Steakhouse, Tujague's, Antoine’s, and Royal China.
How do you stay involved in your community?
Each Monday I address a newsworthy health topic live on the WVUE-TV Morning News show. Also, I write a monthly health column published in New Orleans Magazine and am the longest serving commissioner on the city’s 911 commission.
Why did you decide to become a membership based medicine physician?
The need for primary care physicians has grown faster than the availablity of PCP’s especially after Hurricane Katrina. As the number of new patients needing a PCP expanded, the waiting time for an appointment increased and the amount of time per visit decreased. I like the idea of spending more time on fewer patients, same or next day appointments, and the ability to schedule patients without causing them to wait. A reception room should be just that – a reception room, not a waiting room.

Dr. Lutz is well respected by me and has been for many years. I trust him with my life. He’s professional, caring, nurturing, compassionate and shows genuine concern for his patients on a daily basis. I don't enjoy going to the doctor, however, I always enjoy the time spent with Dr. Lutz. I would never consider another doctor!
Concierge Medicine Philosophy & Approach
We believe that medicine today should focus on prevention, early detection, wellness, direct patient care and spending dedicated time with patients. These are the tenets of concierge medicine. After years of private practice, physicians who transition to concierge medicine get to return to giving patients the type of care they envisioned when entering medical school. Learn More
