Accepting new patients

I graduated from The College of Medicine at the University of South Florida in 1996 and the Family Medicine Residency Program at the University of Tennessee in 1999. While I have enjoyed practicing the entire scope of Family Medicine including obstetrics (prenatal care and delivery), pediatrics and adult medicine, I am currently providing outpatient pediatric and adult care. I am in the office part time as I balance my time with my medical practice and my family.

in Covington, LA |
This physician's office confirmed my appointment and accepted my insurance I.D. The office also sent a letter of reminder for my appointment. When I arrived, I was asked to show I.D. and my Insurance Card. I was declined service as I was then advised "the doctor is no longer accepting Medicaid patients". This is a very poor way of profiling people and taking advantage of a system that was set up to help people with medical needs.

I would absolutely recommend Dr Schiro to everyone I know. She spent almost an hour with me going over every detail of my physical health status. I think she actually cares about her patients and I am no longer afraid to go to the doctor. I have always had an aversion to doctor offices. I think those days are over.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Schiro. She is caring and compassionate. She spends time with you and addresses every concern.

Dr Schiro actually takes the time to read your medical history and evaluates and diagnoses you based on her exam, test results and your medical history. She is a hands on medical professional and our family doctor.
