My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I affiliated with MDVP in 2012, opening my family medicine practice in a conveniently located medical office building here in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Today, I am able to offer medical care for my patients like they are members of my family. I take the time necessary to help patients understand their illnesses and provide an ongoing plan of care. My physician-patient relationships are based on a foundation of open communication, individual respect and trust. 

The focus of my primary care practice at Choice Medical Care, is to provide individualized care and, if possible, maintain or improve my patients' health. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices. The MDVIP model allows me the flexibility to continue to interact and personalize medical therapies for each patient in a unique and innovative manner. I enjoy treating both families and individuals, offering a specialty in geriatric care. 

My hospital affiliates include Baton Rouge General Medical Center, Our Lady of the Lake Medical Center and Woman's Hospital, serving patients from East Baton Rouge Parish and beyond.

from Frederick in LA March 12, 2020 for Susan Richarme, MD

Last August I was about 100 miles out of town and fell off of the family rent house roof. I broke a couple of ribs and had a partially collapsed lung. After an ambulance ride to the local ER, the ER/ICU team wanted to do surgery to put in a chest tube to reinflate the lung. I wasn't very happy with that diagnosis and procedure, so we called Dr. Richarme on her cell phone, and she… See more
