Dr. Paul will start seeing patients on January 4, 2021. Please call and schedule your appointment now.

I was born in Oakdale Louisiana, graduating from Plainview High School. My undergraduate degree was obtained at Northeast Louisiana University in Monroe, where I received a bachelor’s degree in Medical Technology. I worked as a medical technologist for 4 years, before entering medical school at Louisiana State University Medical Center in Shreveport. My internship and residency were also completed in Shreveport. I enjoyed my time in Shreveport, and have always had a special place in my heart for that area. After residency, I moved to Ville Platte Louisiana for private practice. I practiced there for 3 years and then had an opportunity to move to East Texas to practice with a friend from residency. I practiced in the Marshall/Longview Texas area for 17 years. When the opportunity came to work at WK Pierremont, I saw it as an excellent opportunity to give back to the community that had given me so much.

I have a special interest in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery. This includes vaginal and laparoscopic hysterectomies that allow same day discharge from the hospital. I also enjoy taking care of high risk obstetrical patients.

My philosophy of practice, is to give the patient the best experience possible. I have always taken care of my patients whether is was on call or not. They have built a relationship with you and so much appreciate when you do that for them. Child birth is such a special time in a family’s life, and I believe in making it special for each family. When care is needed for gynecologic problems, I always include the patient in the decision‐making process, to help determine the treatment that fits their needs best.

I feel privileged to be able to serve the Shreveport/Bossier community as well as surrounding areas. I look forward to serving an active role in the community.

Outside of work, I spend my free time with my children. Hunting and fishing have always been something that I have been able to enjoy with my family.
