Sage Neuroscience Center Primary Care featured on Good Day New Mexico
Most visits to a primary care physician are based on a behavioral health issue. Integrated care is the coordinated coordination of primary care and behavioral health management. It combines behavioral health needs, substance abuse issues, and physical health under one roof, with multiple clinicians in close contact with each other, all accessing the same set of medical information.
Being able to provide truly integrated care has been a dream for Sage since it’s founding. Our primary care office section of Sage opened June 3, 2016. Certified Physician’s Assistant Heather Drager, who formerly practiced behavioral health medication management at Sage and most recently worked in primary care services for ABQ Health Partners took the reigns of our new department.
As of August 1, 2016, Dr. Lynn Bryant, Internal Medicine Physician, consolidated her private practice and joined Sage full time. We welcomed not only Dr. Bryant but also her excellent office staff and many of her patients from Primary Care and Preventative Services. She brings with her decades of experience treating and managing a wide array of acute and chronic illness.
The working relationship between our primary care team and our behavioral health providers is second to none. The comprehensive care that we offer is unique for a mid-size private office setting. In doing so, our clients have a network at hand to assist in more successful and comprehensive health care to achieve a better life.
We are currently welcoming new clients to primary care, accepting:
- BCBS Senior
- BCBS Centennial
- All Presbyterian
- All Molina Health plans
- NM Health Connections
Our primary care clinic offers walk-in hours for established patients to test INR levels, UTIs, strep throat and blood pressure checks Monday through Thursday.
All other visits are by appointment. For more information on how to become a new patient to Sage Neuroscience or to begin care in our primary care clinic, please visit our registration form here.
