Board Certified Psychiatrist

Degan J. Dansereau, M.D.

A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Dr. Dansereau attended UCLA and Tulane University, where he majored in psychology and graduated with honors. He completed medical school at LSU-New Orleans and continued his training with a Psychiatry Residency at Tulane University where he served as Chief Resident in Psychiatry. He has held various leadership and director positions in both inpatient and outpatient settings, and has been named a “Top Psychiatrist” in Louisiana Life and New Orleans magazines. He currently devotes his full time time to a private practice that focuses on providing personal, caring, and expert treatment of psychiatric illnesses.

Dr. Dansereau has been serving the psychiatric needs of his native city for over twenty years, including seeing patients immediately after Hurricane Katrina as well as using telemedicine to provide uninterrupted care during the COVID-19 pandemic. He sees adults and adolescents above the age of 17 and is currently accepting new patients both in person and via telemedicine. Dr. Dansereau is licensed in the state of Louisiana, so ongoing telemedicine cannot be performed for patients who permanently reside in other states.

In 2017 Dr. Dansereau updated his training by completing a visiting Fellowship at Duke University in TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation). TMS is a non-medication, non-invasive FDA cleared treatment for both depression and OCD that has not responded to medication.

Please note: This practice prefers not to prescribe the chronic use of alprazolam (Xanax). If obtaining a prescription for Xanax is your main reason for seeing a physician, please seek that care from another provider. Thank you for your understanding.

General Info

Quick Contact Form

We are committed to your privacy. Do not include confidential or private info regarding your condition in this form. This form is for general questions about the practice or scheduling.


Unfortunately, many people who could benefit from treatment do not seek help. Often the hardest part of the treatment is making the first appointment. If you or someone you love is suffering, please take the first step in getting the care that is needed. Whether it is with me or someone else, please make an appointment. The vast majority of psychiatric illnesses are very treatable.


Dr. Dansereau is currently accepting new patients. To schedule your first appointment, please call 504-897-0201 now. The next available appointment for a new patient is approximately one to two weeks. Please call the office for questions about the fee schedule, or visit the service page of the website.


We strive to make you health care as cost-effective as possible while delivering expert psychiatric care of the highest quality. If you are canceling or rescheduling an appointment, please do so at least 24 hours in advance. Existing patients can schedule follow-up appointments by phone or can click here to schedule online.


I do not accept any payments or meals from drug companies. This keeps me free of any conflicts of interests. The only things I accept from drug companies are things that I can pass directly on to my patients, for example, medication samples and coupons.


Genetic testing for medication selection has been a popular topic lately in the field of psychiatry. There are situations when it makes sense, but currently it is not recommended for most cases. I keep up to date on genetic testing and other new developments in psychiatry so that I can be sure that my patients receive evidence-based care.
