Bienville Family Clinic is a public Rural Health Clinic, and is operated by the Bienville Parish Hospital Service District No. 2. Our Clinic’s providers are Dr. Melinda Willis, M.D., Pediatrician and Nurse Practitioners William Johnson and Vonceil Cooper. Our Medical Director is Dr. Terry B. Gardner.
The Hospital Service District, as well, operates Bienville Wellness Center, a modern wellness center, with state of the art equipment that is well-maintained for our members’ use. Membership is month-to-month, with no contract.
Bienville Family Clinic appointments are available all people, throughout the lifespan. Our providers offer family-oriented care, including well-woman care, newborn and well-child care, pediatrics and adult/geriatric care.
Bienville Family Clinic can assume responsibility for the total primary health care needs of the individual and family. For any healthcare needs that may arise for our patients that may be outside our providers’ area of expertise, our staff provides referral services to ensure that our patients have access to needed evaluation and treatment.
Our providers can provide continuous, comprehensive care and medical advice during pregnancy planning; they are able to care for you during your pregnancy, refer you to the best of physicians who can deliver your baby, and provide medical care and health consultation for you and your infant following birth. This long-term relationship is centered on caring for the whole family — mother, father, and child.
Patients may have a “personal practitioner”, who provides the majority of their health care. All family members are encouraged to have one provider to coordinate all their health care. Should you wish to be seen sooner than your provider is available, you can schedule an appointment with another of Bienville Family Clinic’s Providers.
