I just had my surgery Monday, March 31, 2008, Dr. Clark Warden from Surgical Specialties in Covington, LA 985-234-3000, they also have a office in Metairie, 504-934-3000.  They take Medicare, the hospital which Medicare requires their group to use is Southern Surgical Hospital in Slidell.  I was very impressed with the hospital and the Surgeons practice.

Hello Ducey, The practice mentioned above -- Drs. Lavin, Warden, etc. -- are the group that my doctor's staff refers all Medicaid patients. They seem to be the only ones in the state currently taking some Medicaid patients, but there are about 5-6 others who will accept Medicare. The Lavin practice has an excellent reputation and I have several friends here in the Baton Rouge area that are patients there. Wishing you well, Frances
