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
“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.
