As Obesity Care Week kicks off, we'd like to share this special message from Dr. Chandrasekaran, who is an incredibly dedicated member of the CMWL provider network. 

In this short video, Dr. Chandra (as she is affectionately known), explains that it is genuinely up to the medical community to tackle the chronic disease of obesity. She also dispels some common myths about the use of weight loss medication in a comprehensive CMWL medical weight loss plan.

Thank you, Dr. Chandra, for your passion and dedication!

Primary Care Specialists Recognized in Nationwide

‘Heroes of Healthcare’ Contest, Sponsored by athenahealth, Inc. 


Alexandria, LA – Dec. 18, 2019 Primary Care Specialists, a practice that is well known to offer comprehensive, compassionate, and competent service to its community, was recognized as a winner in the ‘Heroes of Healthcare’ contest sponsored by athenahealth, Inc.The contest was focused on creating awareness of and support for the unique challenges that independent practices face across the country. In recognition of its ongoing dedication to its community, Primary Care Specialists was granted $1,000 based on the numerous heartfelt submissions, which featured the pride, dedication and support that employees and patients feel and demonstrate for their practice and community.


“Thank you for all the support given to Primary Care Providers! Being a small, independent office brings challenges some offices do not face. However, we love our patients, and our goal is to provide the best quality care from the time patients make their appointment, to follow up support,” commented Cheri Doucet at Primary Care Specialists. “The funds will be used towards materials for the implementation of programs to further educate our patients about the risk factors of obesity and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.”   


“At athenahealth, we understand what independent providers mean to the patients they serve, not just as stewards of essential and affordable medical care, but as drivers of the local economy,” said Chad Turner, vice president of small group at athenahealth. “We’re inspired by the responses to our ‘Heroes of Healthcare’ contest — and committed, as always, to support their mission of improving healthcare across the country.”
