Willis-Knighton and Blue Cross Blue Shield
Willis-Knighton and Blue Cross are in active dialogue regarding renewal of the agreement to provide care for members in our market. Blue Cross and Blue Shield payments are well below market rates. These payments are not sufficient to cover the inflationary costs and technological advances required to provide the best care to patients in WK’s hospitals, physician offices, as well as ancillary and outpatient care sites throughout Northwest Louisiana. Our 450 multispecialty providers value their relationship with their patients, and we hope that Blue Cross will continue to allow its members to receive the highest quality of care from physicians they know and trust.
Healthcare is a very personal and sensitive subject. That's why, when dealing with the very sensitive issues involving the urinary tract and urogenital system, you'll want to choose a doctor who is not just experienced but sensitive to your needs.
Here you’ll find a comfortable setting and personal attention for issues like kidney stone and incontinence that affect both men and women, and a focus on men’s health concerns like prostate conditions, erectile dysfunction and infertility. You'll also have access to advanced technology like da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgery for prostate and kidney conditions and Greenlight Laser photovaporization for enlarged prostate. Plus, we offer less complex procedures, like vasectomy, in the office.
Urology at Pierremont and Urologist Dr. Loren Smith are dedicated to patients in Shreveport, Bossier City and the surrounding area.
