Thanks for such a prompt and heartfelt reply. Before Katrina, there were at least five doctors that I know of who were doing the bypass under Medicaid ... sadly, only one is still local, but he is in a big practice and they don't take medicaid. But, we will continue searching and I will happily let you know if I stumble on anything. Take care and thanks so much!
Todd, I am so very sorry to hear that your friend has been through this. I heard that there is a bariatric Dr. in Shreveport, La. that will take medicaid. I have no idea how true this is, just passing it along. I Pray it is true and your friend can be helped. God Bless You. Prayers being said for the both of you. Robin

Hello. I just wanted to give a link that lists all the places in Louisiana that accept Medicare. There is only one on this list that has recently stopped taking Medicare and it's the last one, "The Women And Children's Hospital" with Dr Keith Chung. The rest, to my knowledge, are accepted. Here is the link:

This would be great information...the link does not work. Can you provide one that does?
Thank you again for posting this!
*Christus Schumpert Health Center Shreveport, La (the
last I checked with them, they only provided the LAP
Band for Medicare and Medicaid, no other procedures)
*Willis Knighton Health System Shreveport, La (the last I
checked with them, they also only provided LAP Band)
*Southwest Medical Center Lafayette, La (they provide
all and the following are divisions of them that also
accept Medicare and Medicaid and provide all) :
*Fairway Medical Covington, La
*Oschner Clinic Foundation New Orleans, La
*Southern Surgical Hospital Slidell, La
Hope this helps! I'm really sorry the link didn't work! God bless you! Gayla
