ARTDOCS (Artists Receiving Treatment Doctors Offering Crucial Services) is a 501c3 charitable organization founded in New Orleans in 1999 to address the critical issue of artist healthcare.

For over ten years, ARTDOCS has provided medical care to artists in New Orleans and has treated over 2500 artist patients.

ARTDOCS offers much-needed medical care to visual artists, writers, musicians and other performing artists in need of routine and urgent health services. One of the first programs of its kind in the country, ARTDOCS gives members of the New Orleans creative community a place to turn to address their often-overlooked medical concerns.

Currently, artist patients in New Orleans are seen at the Daughters of Charity Health Center at St. Cecilia's in the Bywater (4201 North Rampart Street) by Drs. Coleman Pratt and Sarat Raman, medical director.

Patients seen by ARTDOCS New Orleans physicians are provided routine primary care, acute care treatment, chronic disease management and preventive services at no cost to them. Access to specialty services is also provided, usually through Louisiana's University/Charity system.
