Baton Rouge General Expands Family Medicine Services with New O’Neal Lane Clinic

BATON ROUGE, La. – Baton Rouge General (BRG) is expanding its family medicine services with the addition of a new clinic, Baton Rouge General Physicians – O’Neal Lane, led by Dr. Stephen McCulloh. Dr. McCulloh will offer telehealth visits, which have helped reduce the number of people coming into clinic waiting rooms and potentially spreading the novel coronavirus.

“The reality is that COVID-19 is not the only health issue affecting us,” said Dr. McCulloh. “People still have chronic conditions, and while we want to encourage everyone to stay at home, we don’t want you to put your health at risk by putting off your medical care.”

Over the last few weeks, telehealth has taken off across health systems to help evaluate whether a patient needs to be tested for COVID-19. But if a patient has a chronic condition, like diabetes or hypertension, they may need to be seen face to face. It’s best to call first, and Dr. McCulloh and his team will evaluate each patient’s symptoms or conditions to determine the best course of action.

“My goal as a family medicine doctor is to meet my patients where they are, whether they want to see me face to face, talk through their online portal or have an appointment through a virtual telehealth visit,” said Dr. McCulloh.

At all of its clinics, Baton Rouge General has implemented best practices for patient safety, including giving each patient a mask upon arrival and signs directing patients to keep the appropriate 6-foot distance in the waiting rooms.

Dr. McCulloh is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma and earned his medical degree from American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine. He completed his residency in family medicine at Baton Rouge General and is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and the Louisiana Academy of Family Physicians.
