Baton Rouge, La. – Beginning Thursday, March 1, Baton Rouge General’s (BRG)
Mid City Medicine Clinic will expand its services to accommodate walk-in

The clinic, located on North Boulevard in Baton Rouge, provides internal
medicine and primary care services, chronic disease management, treatment
of acute illness, well woman exams, laboratory testing, adult immunizations,
preventative healthcare and pre-operative clearance.
“Our roots are in Mid City, and we are committed to growing the services
we provide to the community,” said Edgardo Tenreiro, President and

Center in 2019.
