Prescription medications are often utilized in our care however no medication or treatment will ever be pushed or pressured for you to take. When medications are used we start low and go slow to assure the minimum effective dosage is found, without going overboard.

Some patients begin medication at the first visit, while others choose to explore non-medication based treatment options. Regardless of your personal wishes, you will finish each appointment knowing you are cared for and feeling respected.

Using the most up to date information, education, and clinical experience, Mike will complete a full psychosocial evaluation, and then present the best options available. From there we discuss your thoughts, feelings, and concerns before deciding together what treatments to utilize.

As a psychiatric medical practice we have full authority to prescribe all psychiatric medications, as well as a range of other non-medication based proven treatments.

Psychotherapy is therapy aimed at overcoming ineffective and inappropriate behavior and then replacing it with acceptable and effective behaviors. This is achieved through gaining a deeper understanding and control of mood, thought, and feeling.

Medication treats the symptom, therapy treats the behavior.

Medication and therapy together show consistently superior results when compared to either treatment alone. For a more in depth look at psychotherapy please refer to our psychotherapy page found under the services tab.

Our most up to date schedule, including current available appointments, can be found through our existing patient portal and new patient links.

Whether you are fresh out of high school or a professional looking to move up the ladder of success, the personal knowledge and extra push to reach your goals are unmatched.

Reviews

“Michael Boas is very knowledgeable and experienced psychiatric nurse practitioner. I never feel judged and find it extremely easy to broach even the most difficult and intimate topics with him. It is always a positive experience seeing him. ”

David B

“I found myself in a bind and in need of immediate psychiatric assistance. I was fortunate enough to be connected with Michael Boas. He listened first, asked relevant questions, expressed compassion, and explained to me my best option for medication. I felt relieved to have my mental health in such capable hands as my anxieties surrounding my circumstances were eased. Fast forward 2 months and I am doing well! Thanks, Mike! Can’t express enough my gratitude. Anyone out there who is struggling, I highly recommend you work with Mike. You will be impressed with his professionalism as well as his individualized approach!”

Eric P

“Michael saved my mental health! He is the most understanding, caring, and sweetest nurse practitioner you can have! He lets you vent without any interruptions! He doesn’t go through the motions like a lot of other doctors do. He stands apart from your average doctor. If you need help mentally I sure hope you chose Michael!”

Karen

“I have a professional affiliation with Michael Boas, and I am delighted to recommend him as he is highly skillful and knowledgeable in his field. He provides a holistic approach beyond prescribing medication. It is quite easy to like him as he is personable, pleasant, positive and a caring practitioner”

Maria M

“He is everything I could ask for in a psychiatric provider - professional, down-to-earth and extremely knowledgeable. I'd recommend him to everyone.”

Josh P

“5 stars ! Once you meet him you cannot help to love him. Simply the best.”

Christina

“Just moved to the area. Needed to see someone right away and Mike made the time. Kind, genuine and empathetic. I'd definitely recommend.”

Jim S

“I have never had a doctor or nurse practitioner who has made me feel so good. After fixing my meds on our first meeting I can’t be thankful enough . He looked me in the eyes when I spoke and then knew what to prescribe without hesitation. ”

Brenda

“First off, what a nice guy! I’m a young working professional with limited time; I’m sure many can relate. What a relief to get a tele-health visit with a provider who didn’t just phone it in. He included me in his thought process and made me part of my treatment plan. When sharing sensitive information I felt reassured and comfortable, which isn’t always the case when establishing a new relationship with a mental health provider. At the end of out appointment he went the extra step to provide me with additional resources. Friendly, courteous, and professional. I highly recommend anyone deciding who they are going to choose to just stop here and book! ”

Alexa

“I have known Michael Boas for several years in a professional capacity. He has always impressed me with his knowledge and compassion towards his patients. When dealing with mental health you want a provider that is well versed in medication management and psychotherapy in order to achieve the best outcomes. Michael has the ability to hone in on important factors that affect treatment and his caring attitude helps patients feel at ease.”
