With the opening of this new clinic, Dr. Carl M. Gauthier Jr. will see
patients in both Hammond and in Satsuma, at North Oaks Multispecialty
Group (located within the health system’s Livingston Parish Medical
Complex.) Dr. Gauthier has studied with some of the nation’s leading

to express their symptoms and concerns, I am more successful in obtaining
the proper diagnosis and treatment plan,” Dr. Gauthier comments.
