Baton Rouge, La. – Recently, Baton Rouge General Physicians (BRGP) presented several awards for excellence in patient care at their annual banquet. The clinics were selected based on medical excellence in patient satisfaction and quality measures.

The clinic is in the top 92nd percentile in the nation for satisfaction. The BRGP Family Medicine clinic in Livingston was also recognized for Overall Quality Care for receiving CGCAHPS’ overall highest score in Quality for Hypertension and Diabetes Management.
