Progressive Medical Care on St. Claude
(Passed along from Lord David & HumdCity.com)
Progressive Medical Care, or PMC, has just opened in the Marigny. As one of those who helped build it, I must say it’s rather nice.
PMC was concieved and opened by Dr. Frederick Floyd, Bywater resident, and owner of the Rookery Recording Studio, also in the Bywater.
Like myself, many residents in the Art-Rich neighborhoods of the Marigny/Bywater/Lower Nine have little or no access to medical care without a trip to a hospital waiting room in the CBD or Metairie. Many certainly operate with limited or no health insurance.
The PMC works with Medicaid, Medicare, most forms of independent health care, and has a pay-as-you-go system for those without any form of insurance.
A fully equiped clinic, they perform echo-cardigrams and sonograms in house, have handicapped access, and take walk-ins as well as appointments. They’re also equipped to deal with many immune deficiency health issues that other clinics do not address.
Progressive Medical Care is located at 2909 St. Claude Ave, at Press Street.
Hours of operation are 8:30am until about 4pm, Monday through Friday For appointments call: 504 942-1167

And thanks, Dr. Fred Thanks very much.
P.S. I also highly recommend the St. Claude Pharmacy at 3916 Saint Claude Ave / Phone: (504) 942-5792. They are very friendly, give excellent service, and their prices and (lack of) wait time put Walgreen’s to shame… support our local businesses! - Andrea

“It’s that bracing spirit of art anarchy that makes the on-and-near St. Claude Avenue art scene the spot to watch in 2008.” - Doug MacCash, Times-Picayune, Dec. 28, 2007
