Samaritan Healthcare’s Behavioral and Mental Health provides a holistic approach to behavioral and mental healthcare—bridging physical, mental, and behavioral health needs to care for the whole person. Behavioral Health is conveniently located in the Family Medicine Department, which helps to remove barriers or stigma for those needing outpatient treatment.
Behavioral Health providers include Dr. Fiza Khan, child and adolescent psychiatrist; Dr, George Hneich, adult psychiatrist; Teresa Hutsell, Nicole Avila-Parker, and Jonathan Ingram, who are all ARNP, PMHNP-BC; Robert Muehlberger and Fabian Gonzales, who are licensed mental health counselors.
Together they work closely with Family Medicine physicians and providers to offer integrated care and coordinate treatments and care plans for patients of all ages, that may include counseling or medication. They know how important it is to listen and care for patients with empathy and support, and the willingness to go the extra mile.
Providing the care right here, close to home in Moses Lake, makes it even more effective.
If you or a friend or loved one is struggling, you’re not alone. We’re here to help.
