South Louisiana Medical Associates is home to a team of driven physicians who combine unrivaled patient services with a passion for community involvement to deliver comprehensive, quality care that embodies the core values of our mission as a healthcare provider.
To help you get to know some of SLMA’s dedicated staff on a more personal level, we are kicking off a “Meet the Doctors” series. Dr. Danielle Angeron is a board-certified family medicine physician who puts her focus on addressing patients’ needs at every visit.
Why did you choose to go into the medical field?
I was drawn into the medical field by its ability to combine both science and people. I enjoy the intellectual challenge of medicine, mixed with the ability to take care of others.
What is your favorite part of practicing medicine?
I love getting to know entire families. That is the best part of family medicine, knowing your patient and all the people who matter to them.
What is your least favorite part of practicing medicine?
Insurance and government regulations
What do your ideal clients say about you?
I spend time with my patients really listening to their concerns. I want every patient to leave their visit feeling that I have given them my full attention and addressed their needs.
What interests you most about working at the SLMA Comprehensive Health Clinic?
I am excited about the opportunity to work with a large group of physicians from all specialties with the ability to coordinate care for my patients.
What is your role within the SLMA clinic?
As a family medicine physician, I provide comprehensive and preventative healthcare to patients of all ages.
Do you have a motto or personal mantra?
I like to go to sleep at night feeling that I have done my best that day for all the people who depend on me, both my patients and my family.
What are you most passionate about professionally?
I believe in treating the patient and not the illness. I think as medical professionals, we need to understand what is important to our patients and any barriers in their lives that may impact their health.
What most excites you about your work and the contribution you can make?
I want to know that I have made a positive difference in the lives of others.
What are you passionate about personally?
My husband and children are the most important parts of my life.
What is your favorite pastime outside of work?
I enjoy reading, walking and yoga.
Any volunteer activities you are involved in?
My volunteer efforts center on my children’s school and extra-curricular activities, such as Boy Scouts.
