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. Similar to conveniences often associated with concierge medicine practices, I also offer same- or next-day appointments that start on time. 

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 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 Justin in LA March 9, 2024 for Michael Day, MD

Dr. Michael Day has been wonderful. He was my physician back when he had his general practice. When he started with MDVIP I originally had to switch doctors but eventually after a few years I joined up with MDVIP. I only switched to MDVIP because of Doctor Day. I appreciate all he does. I feel like he actually listens and isn't trying to rush me out to get to the next patient.

from Kevin in LA February 28, 2024 for Michael Day, MD

I went to the ER with an abdominal infection (diverticulitis). The ER doctor could not get test results from scans done days earlier before I went to the ER. I called Dr. Day at home and asked if he could explain my test results from the earlier scans. He asked me to hand my phone to the doctor that was with me. I asked the ER doctor if he could speak to my Primary on my personal phone. After… See more

Dr. Mike Day has been my PCP for many years. So when he joined MD/VIP my husband and I signed on. In the first physical that I had under the program, Dr. Day found a "glitch" in my EKG. He said it was in an EKG done for a surgery I had the year before, but was worse. So he had me schedule an appointment with my cardiologist. I had a coronary angiogram which showed blockage in… See more

from Joanne in LA February 9, 2023 for Michael Day, MD

During my first MD/VIP physical, Dr. Day detected a "glitch" in my EKG and instructed me to see my cardiologist. The test done in the cardiologist's office (may have been a stress test), he detected an issue and ordered a heart cath. That revealed that I have 50% blockage in one vessel and 25-30% in another. Without the EKG done during my physical, this may have gone… See more

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

Dr. Day just wanted to express my gratitude for everything you have done for me to keep my health on the straight and narrow. I've always appreciated the time you would spend with me answering any questions or concerns I have had. Now with the MDVIP you will even have more time to talk about any health issues I may have and it is paying dividends as evidenced by my latest results from… See more
