Why did you choose mental health as a career path?
“I have chosen mental health as a career path because I believe that to provide optimal health care, we must consider the whole person—body, mind, and spirit. Our mental health directly affects our physical health, and it’s important to achieve a balance to feel well.”
“After going through a few psychiatrists over the years I am so blessed to have found Lorraine Waguespack. As a healthcare professional myself, I am overjoyed to have such a kind, professional and knowledgeable provider. I always feel comfortable and safe discussing my concerns, symptoms and options with Lorraine.” ~ M.G.
“I was extremely happy. All staff was friendly and helpful. We were seen on time. Lorraine, our Nurse Practitioner was amazing. My daughter was not happy at all about coming and she left feeling happy.” ~ P.A.
