About Me

A native of Oakdale, he moved several times because his father was in the U.S. Army. Dr. Paul completed his undergraduate education in medical technology, and worked as a medical technologist for several years before he entered medical school in Shreveport. While there, he became interested in obstetrics and gynecology, and especially passionate for high-risk obstetrics and minimally invasive surgery. He values his close relationships with his patients. In his free time he enjoys fishing, being outdoors and spending quality time with his children.
