About this Location

New location: East Jefferson General Hospital Heart and Vascular Care - 4228 Houma Blvd. Suite 510 Metairie, LA 70006  

Tulane’s heart and vascular specialists are on the front lines of both treatment and discovery, engaged at the bedside and in the laboratory. This means we can provide our patients the latest, research-driven medical and surgical care — often before it’s available at other hospitals. And it means we can treat virtually any heart or vascular condition, including complex disorders once considered too difficult to treat with conventional methods.

Tulane offers a multidisciplinary education teaching resource for patients with diabetes and their families. Individual patients are assessed and educated as per the American Diabetes Association’s Standards for Recognized Quality Self-Management Education programs. Patients are seen by appointment with a physician referral. Individual, Group, and Telehealth appointments are also offered.
