My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goals, as your personal physician, are to provide you with an individualized healthcare plan that helps you achieve your health goals and to be an effective advocate for you in all areas of the healthcare world. In order to meet these goals, we must utilize two of the quickly fading arts in medicine: the comprehensive, hands-on physical examination and the in-depth interview, which includes listening to all aspects of your medical history, concerns and goals in life. In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I have the time and resources to achieve these goals while treating you like a member of my family. I believe that continuity of care, through long-term doctor-patient relationships, is key to developing mutual understanding, trust and quality of care.

I have been a board-certified family practitioner for the last 16 years. General practice is my main focus, but I also have special interests in diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular health, preventive medicine and travel medicine. I am also credentialed to provide examinations for commercial drivers. I have built many great relationships with various specialists, who can also help you with your unique needs.

My primary care practice, also referred to as a concierge medical practice, currently serves the Greater Baton Rouge area and the surrounding parishes. I have hospital affiliations with Baton Rouge General Hospital, Our Lady of the Lake Hospital and Ochsner Medical Center. I want to remove all possible hurdles between you and the healthcare you deserve. That includes flexible scheduling, early/late appointment options and house calls if necessary, to name a few.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Day

from Sharon in LA March 12, 2020 for Michael Day, MD

Last year when I went for my Wellness Exam, I had lost 25 pounds from the previous year's exam date. I needed to lose this weight, and Dr. Day had advised that I do so. He stated that even 10 pounds would be helpful. His exuberance over my weight loss really motivated me to keep it off. It is almost time for my 2020 Wellness Exam, and I have kept it off. Hopefully, I will weigh in… See more

Dr. Day has always been a very personable doctor. He has always sat down when I am in his exam room and taken the time to chat with me to better understand my whole health. Now that he is a MDVIP he provides an even higher level of service and care. I had to call him on a Sun because I was so sick I could hardly walk. And he returned my call right away and talked to me in a calm patient soft… See more

from Joanne in LA February 28, 2018 for Michael Day, MD

I have been able to get appointments so much faster than before Dr. Day transitioned to the MDVIP program. My appointments have been so much better as Dr. Day and his staff have been able to spend so much more time with me helping me with my health issues. The best experience this year, though, was getting the results of my tests. Dr. Day detected a coronary issue and referred me to my… See more
