Parents in the Gonzales area seeking allergy or immunology services for their children now have an option for care that is closer to home. Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital has opened a pediatric specialty clinic in the St. Elizabeth Hospital Physician Medical Office offering diagnosis and treatment for such conditions as asthma, food and environmental allergies, sinusitis, skin rashes, ear infections and more.

The Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital Pediatric Specialty Clinic-Gonzales is the first clinic to offer these specialized pediatric services in the Gonzales area. As an extension of Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital, the new clinic offers the same exceptional quality and clinical expertise as the pediatric care offered at the main campus in Baton Rouge.

Theron McCormick, MD is the Board Certified specialist at the clinic offering allergy and immunology treatment for children ranging from newborns to teenagers. He also provides care at Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital in Baton Rouge.

“By opening this additional clinic, the Children’s Hospital is providing increased access to specialists outside of the Baton Rouge region,” said Vice President of Children’s Services Nicole Telhiard. “We hope to further meet the needs of our neighboring communities with additional services in the future.”

Treating more than 100,000 children annually from across Louisiana and the surrounding region, Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital is the only full-service provider of pediatric healthcare in the Baton Rouge region, including the area’s only 24/7 pediatric Emergency Room. The main campus also offers more than 60 pediatric specialists and a St. Jude Affiliate Clinic, one of only seven such clinics in the country to offer the same oncology and hematology expertise, treatment and protocols offered at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The Pediatric Specialty Clinic in Gonzales is located inside the St. Elizabeth Hospital Physician Medical Office building at 2647 South St. Elizabeth Boulevard, Suite 220. Appointments are available on Tuesdays beginning August 4. To schedule an appointment, call (225) 765-6834.
