New Neurology Center Opens in Jefferson Parish
JEDCO helps finance project
METAIRIE, LA – The Jefferson Parish Economic Development Commission (JEDCO) announced the grand opening of Spectrum Neurology Center, a state-of-the-art medical facility, located at 4213 Teuton St., in Metairie, near East Jefferson General Hospital.
Pioneered by Dr. Troy Beaucoudray, this new neurology center provides patients with a high level of quality care in Jefferson Parish.
Spectrum Neurology Center employs five people, all focused on providing a multi-disciplinary approach to the treatment of neurological disorders. Specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of painful neurological conditions, Dr. Beaucoudray offers his patients a detailed neurological evaluation, high quality diagnostic testing and numerous treatment options for their symptoms. Very few specialists in the state of Louisiana have his combination of training, which is an asset to this region.
JEDCO played a vital role in establishing this new medical practice, providing all outside financing for the project, which included real estate acquisition, renovations, the purchase of equipment and working capital. Of the more than $707,600 investment, JEDCO financed more than $636,800 of it.
"Jefferson Parish is home to some of Louisiana's finest healthcare providers and Spectrum Neurology is yet another addition," Jerry Bologna, JEDCO's executive director, said. "This company was created out of a vision to do what's best for the patients in Jefferson Parish and we are proud to have played a role in bringing that dream to fruition. We look forward to watching Spectrum Neurology grow and provide high quality care to the people of our community for many years to come."
"The most frustrating part of the current field of medicine is the inability to be a doctor," Dr. Beaucoudray said. "Due to reimbursement cuts, reduced revenue and as a doctor previously working in a group practice, I became a production line and had to see more and more patients to compensate for this loss of revenue. As a result, this produced longer wait times and less quality time with the patient. Now as a business owner, with the help of JEDCO, I can control my overhead and revenue stream and actually generate the same revenue while seeing fewer patients. As a result, I am getting get back to the basics of being a doctor by offering the simplest aspect to my patients: quality time."
Dr. Beaucoudray was born and raised in the New Orleans area. He completed his Neurology residency training at Tulane University and served as chief resident in his final year. Following residency he completed a fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology/ Neuromuscular Disease at the University of Texas Medical School in Houston. He received specialized training in EMG/NCV and the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the muscle and nerve. Eager to expand treatment options for his patients, he then completed a second fellowship in Interventional and medical pain management at Louisiana State University (LSU) Health Science Center in New Orleans. With his advanced specialized training in Neurology, Neurophysiology, Interventional Pain Management and his previous post graduate training in chiropractic, Dr. Beaucoudray has the opportunity to offer his patients a multi-disciplinary approach to the treatment of painful neurological conditions.
