Dr. McKinney's practice offers high quality, timely care in a confidential and comfortable setting. The practitioners of Dr. McKinney's office have a wealth of experience in psychiatric care and work in a team approach.
Dr. McKinney's easy-going conversational style, educational and common sense approach, makes her especially popular with patients who have not received treatment before. Dr.O'Neal, and Karen Jones, NP, similarly have an approach that focuses on education and a holistic overview of a patient's emotional well-being.
About 30% of patients are self-referred; the rest are referrals from other physicians or counselors who have a question about a diagnosis or medications.
About 50% of patients are treated with a combination of medication and psychotherapy; the rest are treated with either medication or psychotherapy alone. Psychotherapy is referred to counselors with expertise in the areas identified as contributing to the current illness by our practitioners.
For most patients, the usual length of treatment is 6 months to one year. After that, they either return to their primary care provider or continue to be seen in our practice as needed for stabilization of their mental health.
