Caro Clinic: Affordable Care, Handled Urgently
Walk-ins Welcome

Caro Clinic is a family medical practice that has been independently owned and operated since it was established in 1975. We pride ourselves on our personal relationships to our patients and our strong attachment to the community that spans decades. With a newly renovated facility, as well as an electronic medical record system that is on the way, we plan on continuing to serve Ascension Parish for years to come.

We will continue to serve most of our patients with telemedicine visits: Especially people over 60, those with multiple medical problems or immune suppression

Beginning 5/18, after a telemedicine evaluation if it is determined by the physician and patient that an in-office visit is needed, that will be scheduled to limit the number of patients in the clinic to a minimum.

All patients coming in to clinic should wear masks.

At this time, we will NOT be operating the Walk in Clinic model we were using before the Covid 19 crisis

Our new address is:
2304 S. Burnside Ave STE. 2, Gonzales, LA.

  • 40-Year Anniversary

    The Caro Clinic celebrated Forty Years of Primary Care in Gonzales on July 1st, 2015. The occasion was marked by a party to celebrate Dr. Caro’s forty years of service to the community.
    While the practice of medicine has vastly changed over the last forty years, the personal level of care and treatment has remained the same here at the Caro Clinic.
    We continue to accept new patients and are eager to grow with the prospering parish of Ascension.

  • Caro Clinic Introduces NaPro Treatments

    NaPro Technology gives women the opportunity to see into the way their bodies function and to take part in it. NaPro also allows us as medical professionals to help women monitor their fertility and fix reproductive problems (such as irregular bleeding, PMS, infertility, endometriosis, polycystic disease) all with a natural, bioidentical, low-cost approach.
    Dr. Sarah Chavez is very excited to grow this part of the practice and address women’s health needs from abnormal menstrual cycles to infertility to natural contraceptive methods here at the Caro Clinic.
