What should I expect at my follow up appointments?
Your follow up appointments with your psychiatric PA are 15-30 minutes. These medication management visits and are tailored to determining how we can best treat the physical and chemical imbalance in the brain with medication. You will still need to address many of the behaviors and life stressors that lead to your difficulties. We recommend working with a therapist in this regard.
How should I address my medical provider?
Amy Morrison is not a doctor. She is a psychiatric physician assistant. As such, the formal title of doctor should not be used to address her. Amy actually prefers that you call her Amy. It is her belief that the working relationship between client and medical provider is better forged when you are both on a first name basis.
