PRMC Adds New Provider and New Service Line in 2019

A new psychologist is joining the team at Pratt Regional Medical Center adding Behavioral Health to the service lines available.  Licensed psychologist Dr. Mark Green will open his practice at Pratt Internal Medicine Group on January 2nd, 2019.  Susan Page, President and CEO shares, “as our Internal Medicine physicians have said numerous times, this will bring a much-needed service to the patients we serve.  We are thrilled Dr. Green is joining our team!”    

Dr. Green generally sees people for health issues including depression, anxiety and addiction among many more.  Mark and his wife Emily have eight children and enjoy the challenge of teaching them to seek and embrace truth, though they are willing to settle for just not hurting each other. In addition to work and family responsibilities, Mark finds balance by singing, playing the piano, and trying to avoid injuries while exercising.

“We are so excited to have Dr. Green join our medical staff.  He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to patients in south central Kansas,” said Kelly McDermeit, Vice President of Clinic Services.  Dr. Green received his undergraduate degree in Psychology from Brigham Young University and a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Indiana State University. He comes to Pratt Regional Medical Center from the Counseling & Testing Center over Prevention Services at Wichita State University where he was Assistant Director, in addition to running a small private practice in Wichita, KS.

First-time clients can expect Green to be full of questions. He will ask about symptoms, background, family history and the like.  As for people embarrassed about going to a psychologist, Dr. Green first suggests thinking of mental health like physical health. Getting treatment for depression should not be any more embarrassing than for asthma or diabetes.

To schedule an appointment to see Dr. Green, please call the Pratt Internal Medicine Group at (620) 672-7415. Patients may be able to self-refer, depending on insurance coverage.
