New doctor focuses on COVID when speaking to Lions

The Minden Lions Club welcomed Dr. Francis Oguntodu on Thursday, Oct. 9. His presentation focused on the COVID-19 pandemic, and he attempted to provide updated information about symptoms, treatments, vaccines and boosters. Dr. Oguntodu spent a great deal of time answering questions from those in attendance and dispelling myths surrounding the disease and treatment options.

Dr. Oguntodu is board certified in family medicine and is accepting new patients at his office, Elite Family Medicine, located at #2 Medical Plaza in Minden. When Dr. Oguntodu is not in his clinic, he is working in MMC’s emergency room or seeing hospital inpatients as a hospital medicine physician.
