Ricky A. Paul, MD, has joined Pierremont OB/Gyn Specialists in Shreveport. He comes to Shreveport from a practice in East Texas where he has been since 2000.
The Oakdale native earned a Bachelor of Science degree in medical technology at Northeast Louisiana University (now the University of Louisiana – Monroe) and a medical degree at LSU School of Medicine in Shreveport, where he also completed an internship followed by a residency in obstetrics and gynecology.
While he has an interest in high-risk obstetrics, Dr. Paul offers a full range of obstetric and gynecologic services. He places a strong emphasis on minimally invasive procedures when his patients need surgery.
“I relate to my patients on a personal basis,” Dr. Paul says. “One of the most important things in my practice is to always take care of my own patients. I’ve always delivered all my own patients’ babies unless I was out of town. I think that’s one of the most important aspects of being an obstetrician, the relationship with the patient.”
WK Pierremont OB/Gyn Specialists is located in Suite 600 of the WK Pierremont Medical Office Building adjacent to the hospital. The practice includes Erin McCormick Gullatt, MD, Lauren McCalmont, MD, and Lise Huddleston, MD. Jeffery Hebert, MD, and Hollie McCart, MD, round out the medical group and expect to begin seeing patients in July.
Dr. Paul and his partners accept new patients and most insurance plans.
