What is the difference between a nurse practitioner and a doctor?
Nurse practitioners are Masters-level nurses who are clinicians with the experience and education to provide healthcare to clients. In the State of Texas, a nurse practitioner receives some level of supervision from a doctor, including chart review and delegation of controlled substance prescribing.

What are your office hours?
My office is open Tuesday 9am-7pm, Thursday 9am-7pm, and Saturday 9am-5pm.
Can you order labs and prescribe medications?
Yes, I have prescriptive authority for psychiatry. I can order relevant labwork and prescribe psychiatric medications.
What kind of payments are accepted?
I require a credit card to be saved on file at or before the time of service. Accepted payments are credit card, debit card, check, cash and Health Savings Account (HSA). I am "in-network" with BlueCross BlueShield of Texas PPO plans. I can provide a superbill receipt for you to file with other insurance plans as "out-of-network".
Do you see children and adolescents?
No, I generally do not accept clients who are under the age of 18. My experience is working with adults.
