The Doctor Will Hear You Now Podcast Returns for a Second Season

Season Two Focuses on the Importance of a Primary Care Provider, Weight Loss and Management, And Breakthroughs in Healthcare

Baton Rouge, LA – Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady Health System (FMOLHS) is proud to announce the launch of the second season of our highly acclaimed podcast, The Doctor Will Hear You Now. Building on the success of the first season with over 25,000 listens, the podcast devoted to connecting providers with patients is back with more insightful discussions and expert opinions on pressing health issues.

This season, we delve into topics exploring weight loss and management, the latest healthcare breakthroughs, and the importance of establishing a relationship with your primary care provider.

“Don’t be scared of taking the first step to take care of your health,” said season two guest Lauren Barfield, MD. “Health is something that we can’t get back and it’s precious to us. If you’ve had a bad experience in the past, try again to find that right match.”

The podcast aims to provide listeners with valuable information that can guide them in making informed decisions about their health. As the healthcare system that listens, FMOLHS is committed to removing barriers to care and keeping the lines of communication open.

“As we saw from the success of our first season, The Doctor Will Hear You Now podcast bridges the gap between patients and healthcare providers, offering answers to the healthcare questions you have but may be afraid to ask,” said Lexi Verret, manager of content strategy at FMOLHS and co-host of The Doctor Will Hear You Now podcast. “The podcast is just one way for you to connect with providers in our healthcare system in a way that’s convenient for you.”
