Baxter Behavioral Health is here for all of your psychiatric medication management needs!
We are a group of Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners who truly care about their patients. We understand that it can be difficult to reach out for help, but we're here for you. We provide a full hour for your first appointment so that we can get to know you and what you're going through. You and your provider will discuss if medication is warranted, or not. Just because you have an appointment, doesn't mean you must leave with a script; it's all about what you are comfortable with.
If you, or someone you know, is struggling with their mental health and would like to discuss medication treatment options, please call today.
