Dr. Yates received his medical degree from the University of Arizona College of Medicine. There, he developed a deep interest in the intersection between the neuromuscular system, nutrition, medications, the brain, memory, and human perception of speech and emotion. He completed his psychiatric residency training at Banner-University Medical Center in Tucson, Arizona. Today, Dr. Yates combines his biological and medical backgrounds with in-depth psychotherapeutic, pharmacologic, and diagnostic expertise gained during his residency. He is currently scheduling 30, 60, and 90 minute visits via full time front office staff.
It is very difficult to accept that one has mental illness, let alone call out for help. I believe I can extend my hands to those who really need my care and attention. Tola, who is a Board Certified Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner with over 10 years of experience. With a Master’s in Nursing, she has vast and diverse experience in mental health; from working in drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities to inpatient and outpatient psychiatric settings. Alternatively, she has also worked in community behavioral and forensic health settings. I look forward to partnering with you all on your journey!!!
