Jaime Lee Durchin, PA-C, CAQ-Psychiatry
- Certified Physician Assistant with a Master’s degree in physician assistant studies from King’s College in Wilkes-barre, PA.
- Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) in Psychiatry through the NCCPA (National Commission on the Certification of Physician Assistants) with specialty board examination every 10 years.
Specialization: I have over 15 years of experience in private practice and inpatient settings, seeing adolescents, adults, geriatric, and special needs populations. I provide psychiatric evaluations and behavioral health medication management.
Style: I treat each patient with sensitivity, helping patients achieve and maintain the highest possible level of functioning, well-being, and autonomy. Mental health disorders may exacerbate symptoms and functional disabilities associated with aging. As a result, I have experience working with my patients to manage behaviors and medications they may take for their physical health.
Biography: I joined Dr. Noonan’s practice, Mental Health Management Group, and also work part-time at the Meadowbrook Psychiatric & Counseling Centre in Lakeland, FL. I am a past NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Scranton Chapter board member and currently a member of the Florida Academy of Physician Assistants (FAPA) and the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA).
