Lafayette General Urgent Care Welcomes New Physicians
Lafayette General Health (LGH) welcomes Family Medicine physicians Ronald Menard, M.D., and Nichole Miller, M.D., to the staff of its Urgent Care Centers and to LGMD Physician Group. Lafayette General’s Urgent Care walk-in clinics treat non life-threatening conditions, including cuts, burns, sprains, fractures, aches and allergic reactions.
Dr. Menard, who practiced many years in Crowley, earned his Doctor of Medicine degree from Louisiana State University’s School of Medicine in New Orleans after earning a Bachelor of Science from LSU in Baton Rouge. He completed his Family Medicine residency at Earl K. Long Hospital in Baton Rouge. In addition to his years of practice in Crowley and in urgent care, Dr. Menard spent time teaching medical residents at University Hospital & Clinics (UHC). He is a fellow of the American Association of Family Physicians, in addition to being an education committee member with the Louisiana Academy of Family Physicians.
Dr. Miller earned her Doctor of Medicine from LSU’s School of Medicine in Shreveport. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where she graduated summa cum laude. She completed her residency in Family Medicine at UHC.
Both physicians belong to prominent professional organizations. Dr. Menard belongs to the American Academy of Family Physicians, Louisiana Academy of Family Physicians, Louisiana State Medical Society and Acadia Parish Medical Society. Professional organizations that Dr. Miller belongs to include the American Association of Family Physicians, Louisiana Association of Family Physicians and Louisiana State Medical Society.
LGH’s certified Urgent Care Centers are always staffed with a licensed physician, unlike many walk-in clinics that sometimes staff only a Nurse Practitioner.
Lafayette General Urgent Care Clinics are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. There are two locations, located at River Ranch (1216 Camellia Blvd.) in Lafayette, and at Sugar Mill Pond (2810 Bonin Rd.) in Youngsville. A third Urgent Care Center in Carencro is expected to open this winter. For more information about Lafayette General’s Urgent Care Centers, visit LafayetteGeneral.com/UrgentCare.
