The Medical Psychology Center at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Plano provides services that address the complex biopsychosocial issues associated with diseases. Our team is composed of medical psychologists, neuropsychologists, and various other disciplines that work together to serve patients and their health care teams.
Medical psychology is a specialized field that treats physical problems by treating the whole person. At the center, we address biological, psychological, behavioral and social problems known to cause or worsen illness and impact quality of life. Neuropsychology specifically identifies brain-related strengths and weaknesses following neurological injury or disease, as a means of improving cognitive, behavioral, and/or emotional adaptation in day-to-day life.
The Medical Psychology Center provides science-based diagnostic and therapeutic services aimed at helping patients develop strategies for coping with illness and functional disability, improving health, enhancing quality of life, and overcoming emotional problems. We take an integrated approach, working with your health care team to guide treatment planning. This leads to better health outcomes.
