Dr. Anne Price, MD, specializes in internal medicine and practices out of our SLMA Comprehensive Health Clinic in Houma. She is a graduate of the Louisiana State University School of Medicine at Shreveport. Dr. Price isn’t overwhelmed by medically complex patients, but rather takes a strategic approach to understand patients’ health concerns and address them in manageable ways.

I don’t find caring for medically complex patients overwhelming, rather it is an opportunity. I find it interesting and very manageable once patients’ concerns can be broken down into more manageable issues.
What is your least favorite part?
Managed healthcare and insurance companies can be time consuming; however, luckily, the SLMA team has wonderful people who do this for us.
