Advantage Primary Care in Lowell is taking a team approach to traditional primary care by bringing in Behavioral Health Consultant Braden Duncan L.C.S.W. to consult with Dr. Rhonald Searcy on the mental well being of patients.
“A Behavioral Health Consultant is a mental health consultant that is integrated within a primary care team” Duncan says he is there to “offer brief consultations to patients on emotional health, on behaviors that affect chronic illness, on helping to support those who are going thru major life changes, losses, that sort of thing.”
“Advantage Primary Care is a family practice clinic, so we see children adults and the elderly.” Dr. Searcy says “We are also a patient center medical home meaning that we strive to provide total patient care in a manner that is team based. We also have goals of helping patients get to have access with their doctor quickly so that they don’t have wait times to get an appointment as well as improving patient satisfaction and their care and also improving overall health outcomes in our patients.”
“Advantage Primary Care started out as a pilot or experimental clinic and was a collaboration between Blue CrossBlue Shield and Washington Regional Medical Center. Over time that pilot has transformed more into at this point we’re accepting all major insurances and not just Blue Cross Blue Shield.”
Advantage Primary Care is accepting new patients. For more information call 479-463-8150 or check out their website.
