Meet Ricky Phillips, DNP, UCMD’s newest nurse practitioner!

An Air Force veteran with over 20 years of health care experience, Ricky Phillips is a board certified family nurse practitioner. He received his Associates of Science in registered nursing from Pensacola Community College. Both his Bachelors and Masters of Science in Nursing came from Loyola University New Orleans. His Doctor of Nursing Practice degree came from Chatham University in Pittsburgh.

Prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, he was an emergency/flight nurse, and clinical manager in a large emergency department located in the New Orleans metropolitan area.

Ricky is not just a great nurse practitioner, he’s a great person. As is the case with many of our team members, we’re especially excited that he is an armed forces veteran. Dedication to our country is something we take great pride in at Urgent Care MD.

Ricky will spend time between both our Lakeview and Mid-City locations.
