BATON ROUGE, La. – Baton Rouge General (BRG) continues to expand its footprint around the metro area with the opening of a new family medicine clinic in Central, led by Shaun Spinks, MD, and Daniel Daire, FNP. The clinic features larger exam rooms and state-of-the-art technology that creates a better patient experience. With the Fast Pass registration option, patients can check in for appointments with the BRG app or at an onsite kiosk, and fill out their forms ahead of time, eliminating the clipboards and stacks of papers while sitting in a waiting room.

Dr. Spinks received his Bachelor of Science in Animal Biology and a minor in Chemistry from Louisiana Tech University. He graduated from Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans and completed his family medicine residency at Conroe Family Medical Education Foundation in Conroe, Texas. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, he volunteered as a medical student at the Baton Rouge River Center with the BRG Family Medicine Residency Program, inspiring him to become a family physician. During his residency in Texas, Dr. Spinks served as lead resident over the disaster management team for the residency, staying the entire week at the hospital during Hurricane Ike.

Daniel Daire, NP, earned his Bachelor of Science in nursing from Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans and a master’s in nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner degree from Southern University in Baton Rouge. He also holds a Bachelor of Science in biology from LSU.

The clinic staff and hospital leadership, along with the Central Chamber of Commerce, will hold a ribbon cutting as well as an open house to meet the providers and clinic team on August 12. From 12-2 p.m.
