Our practice is fortunate to count on a team of skilled and caring physician assistants (PAs), who work closely with Drs. Turnipseed and McKay to provide care for our patients. PAs are highly-trained medical professionals who have completed a master’s degree that entails both rigorous medical education and more than 2,000 hours of clinical rotations before graduation. They are certified by the same medical board that licenses physicians, and are held to the same standard of care. Like psychiatrists, PAs have training in general medical practice as well as the field of psychiatry. In partnership with our physicians, PAs are able to provide the full spectrum of care that Roots offers, from skilled assessments to ordering and interpreting labs to prescribing medication. Equally important, they bring genuine compassion and a well-trained ear to every appointment, ensuring that our patients receive the highest possible quality of care. Employing this collaborative-care model, we are able to help more people, lowering wait-times for appointments and improving the quality of life for all of our patients.
