How do you stay involved in your community?
I am an active member of St. George Church where I participate in ministries and committee work. Additionally, I am active in the East Baton Rouge Parish Medical Society and the LA Academy of Family Physicians.
Why did you decide to become a membership-based medicine physician?
I decided to change my practice this year so I could spend more quality time with each individual patient providing them more personalized care and attention. Our present health care system has a very rushed approach, forcing you to assess and treat difficult issues in a 10-15 minute appointment. My new practice will allow for longer appointment times to treat current issues while focusing more on preventative care and wellness. Although many of my patients have been with me for 20 years or longer, this change will allow me to learn even more about them while continuing to provide overall excellent healthcare.
"So thankful for the care I've received from Dr. Brignac! He's a friendly and trustworthy physician who has really helped me feel better."
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
