Summit ObGyn Holds Coushatta Grand Opening
Women’s health care is now available in Coushatta through Summit ObGyn of Natchitoches. Summit held their open house on Tuesday morning. It was their first day of seeing patients in Coushatta
The team from summit will be headed by Barbara McCoy, Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner. Also present were Jocelyn Parker, Office Manager for Summit, Christy Holden who is the Receptionist and nurse Shrea Mitchell, NRCMA. Backing them up will be Dr. Moshood Olatinwo, MD and the Summit ObGyn staff.
McCoy told The Journal, “We are excited to be in the area providing service to the women of Red River Parish. Obstetrical care, prenatal care as well as gynecological services will be offered.”
“Prenatal patients will be seen here (in Coushatta) and in the Natchitoches office beginning at 33 weeks until the child is born,” said McCoy. She added, “We see patients by appointment every other Tuesday, beginning August 14th.”
The Summit brochure states, “The major focus at Summit ObGyn is to provide comprehensive health care to women of all ages.” This includes the area of adolescent gynecology, uro-gynecology, infertility, contraceptive care, menopausal care, prenatal care, female sexual dysfunction and high-risk obstetrics services.
McCoy said a motivating factor in bringing services in Coushatta was patient convenience. She said, “We have many patients from this area. Seeing them here will make it more convenient and eliminate the need for the drive into Natchitoches for care.”
