Lauren S. Pointer, MD

About Dr. Pointer

I specialize in Gastroenterology. I love this field because of the meaningful relationships and connections I have made and will continue to make with patients and their families. I was drawn to gastroenterology because of the technical and intellectual skills it requires to provide the best care for some of the most complicated patients. I specialize in the evaluation and treatment of digestive diseases, performing EGDs and high-quality colonoscopies, and have a particular interest in inflammatory bowel disease.

My little something extra

I was raised in New Orleans and excited to be back in the city that I love so much. When I'm not at work, I enjoy cooking, continuing to explore New Orleans through its food and restaurants, and spending time with my husband and two children.
