Born and raised in St. Gabriel Louisiana, Dr. Drew has lived in the Baton Rouge and New Orleans areas his entire life. Dr. Drew Causey is married to Dr. Danielle Causey and together they have two young sons. His hobbies include inshore fishing, DIY landscaping, homebrew, photography, and planning unique vacations.
He graduated from Catholic High School in Baton Rouge in 1998. He then attended LSU, obtaining a Bachelors of Science in Biochemistry with honors in 2002. Dr. Drew’s medical education took place at LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans where he obtained his M.D. in 2006. He then trained at Ochsner New Orleans, completing his Internal Medicine residency. Dr. Causey maintains board certification in Internal Medicine and has been practicing as a hospitalist at Our Lady of the Lake since 2010.
“I have been interested in pathological aging and metabolic health starting well before my formal medical education.” As a hospitalist caring for serious acute illnesses and for chronic progressive diseases, Dr. Causey is a daily witness to many devastating but preventable metabolic diseases. He feels the evidence is now indisputable connecting diet and body weight to metabolic diseases and even cardiovascular health. Metabolic diseases include type 2 diabetes, premature hardening of the arteries, elevated blood pressure, low thyroid, and elevated blood lipids. In his role at Causey Med Aesthetic, he has the opportunity to intervene before these metabolic diseases and their downstream effects strike, providing motivated patients with the knowledge, noninvasive treatments and encouragement to improve their weight and overall health.
“I do not intend to replace your PCP, cardiologist, or endocrinologist. However, my complementary focus on your weight, lifestyle and metabolic health should make their job much easier and allow you to take far less medication.”
