"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us." - Gandalf
Hi! I'm Paul. I'm a Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) in Medford, Oregon. Since I was young, I've cherished transparency and deep relationships. This and my curiosity into how the mind works led me into the field of mental health. I spent most of my time as a psychiatric nurse and PMHNP seeing patients with mental health struggles on the acute psychiatric unit and emergency department at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center. During my time there, I worked with patients who had a variety of mental health issues including but not limited to disorders of depression, anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia, PTSD, borderline personality, and substance use. Time and again, the lack of accessibility and follow up for patients outside of the hospital became apparent to me. This led me to create Paradigm Mental Health and Wellness, a clinic where patients can have an appointment the same day they walk in, and they can also follow up with me as their primary psychiatric provider if they desire. This patient-centric approach will give patients flexibility and control in their care, unusual in the classic healthcare world. My vision for Paradigm is one of transparency, innovation, and growth, where we learn from each other and from our patients on how to best serve the community. I look forward to seeing you at our clinic!
