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.
