Candace B. Warner, MD is the only board certified Physician
Acupuncturist in Louisiana
Dr. Warner has
been in Baton Rouge since 1991. She also practices in General Infectious Diseases. Acupuncture is not covered by insurance.
The only exception is the primary Bluecross Blueshield Federal PPO policy. The state OGB plan no longer covers acupuncture.
Medicare has never covered acupuncture, although they do cover physical therapy, chiropractic and massage treatments! Acupuncture
is a very safe and cost effective modality that can yield pain relief without invasive surgeries or injection procedures.
Steroid injections can increase blood sugar and also pose an infection risk. Dr. Warner also has a class IV laser
that is effective in treating peripheral neuropathy and wounds.
