Erin Gullatt, MD
I was born and raised in Bossier City, LA, and graduated from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge with a bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences. I then returned home to attend medical school at Louisiana State University in Shreveport before venturing south to New Orleans for my OB/GYN residency at Ochsner Baptist. New Orleans was a vibrant place for my husband and I to begin our marriage and have our son, but the small-town-girl in me couldn’t wait to get back to our roots and closer to family. Now, I feel very fortunate to be a part of The Woman’s Clinic.
Family actually has a lot to do with my decision to practice Obstetrics and Gynecology. Raised in a close-knit family with two sisters, communicating and relating to other women has become one of my strengths. I love delivering babies and performing surgery, but the relational part of the job is my absolute favorite. As an OB, I see a patient from start to finish, and I have the privilege to develop an authentic relationship with her.
I believe the doctor-patient relationship is best when it is two-sided and when patients feel that their needs are met. My approach is to be open, honest, and positive. First, I try to understand why the patient felt the need to come to the doctor and what she is hoping to get out of her visit. I then discuss all options thoroughly to ensure she understands what I think she could gain from particular treatments. I also try to give my patients a comfortable atmosphere in which they can get to know me and build trust.
I am proud to serve the women of Monroe, West Monroe, and surrounding areas as an OB/GYN, and when I’m not in the office, I enjoy all things outdoors and spending quality time with family.
