We extend our deepest condolences to Dr. Gary Booker’s family. He was a valued faculty member who will be missed by all. He was especially beloved by students and residents who benefited from his outstanding teaching ability. His service in leading the emergency psychiatry team for the past seven years has touched countless lives due to his profound compassion for those suffering with mental illness. “Dr. Booker believed in giving 110% to every patient and student garnering the respect of all who knew him. He was a good friend, colleague and an excellent clinician,” shared Dr James Patterson, Chair of the LSUHS Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine.
