This is an honest answer. I (my child) was forced to see her for an evaluation bc of something that happened at school. I had a little problem with the chick in the lobby, but that was more bc of the school than anything. But since that happened I went in there with a narrow mind about Ms Estes. I must say she changed my mind pretty quick. She was firm with my child. She told them it was time to straighten up, etc etc, lets just say no one was pulling wool over her eyes. In all fairness, I've never been in a counselors office before, but I was impressed with her. The only down side, she was showing a lot and I mean a lot of cleavage. I was a little embarrassed. It wasn't very professional. I can only imagine her counseling a sex addict dressed that way. Just for the record, she is a nurse practitioner not a dr. But I would recommend her. Actually I would go myself......

I find it kinda funny that the school system required that you take your child specifically to her. I know that there was rules broken and something needed to be done. The funny thing to me is that her husband is the hancock county school superintendent. Sounds like they're trying to milk the residents of hancock county of as much money as they can. Especially since there are real behavioral health professionals in owensboro who are much more qualified than her.

I knew that going in. That's why I went too. I wanted to look out for my child's best interest, make sure it wasn't....something other than what they said it would be. But I was pleased with her professionalism. At least from the head up, ie the cleavage comment. The school footed the bill. That's why I didn't have a problem going to her. Had they wanted me to pay, yes I would of went a different route. I still think its not right that hey demand you go there, conflict of interest, but wrong was done on my child's part, hoping we can put this behind us.

They school footed the bill for you to visit a practitioner that is related to a school board member. Sounds scandalous to me.

That is correct. They footed the bill, and it's scandalous. Small town at its best.

This statement is just plain inaccurate. Nurse Practitioners in Kentucky can enter into a contractual agreement with a physician to have full prescribing authority for non-controlled substances. They can enter into a seperate prescribing agreement with a physician to have prescribing authority for controlled substances but are limited to a 72 hour supply.

Physician's assistants in Kentucky are limited to working under the supervision of a physician.

The two practice acts are not related and the large number of nurses in the state have influenced the Kentucky legislature over the years to continuously expand the NP scope of practice.

The practice act differs from state to state and Indiana NPs have more autonomy than Kentucky NPs.

I have worked closely with Jessica in the past. She is professional and does an excellent job. I agree that what appears to be a contractual agreement between her and the school system where her husband is superintendant looks scandolous. However, it is my understanding that one or both of the two of them are natives of Hancock County and if she is the only provider of psychiatric services in the county it only makes sense that she would have that contract. She is more than qualified to perform the kind of services the school would require, and her services would come at a much cheaper rate than any physician. We all know that school systems have no budget for text books let alone psych evaluations for their students. If you don't like the person chosen to do your child's psych evaluation, teach your kid to behave so that they won't need one.

I never said I didn't like her. Actually, other than the cleavage thing, I thought she did very well. I even said I would see her myself if I felt the need.
Rules were broken, but not in school or on school grounds.

I have been to different physicians throughout my life. I was referred to her from my PCP. She is very professional. She HAS prescribed me medication that DOES work. I've had previous experiences where the physicians just want to rush you out of their office and be done with you and not listening to what you have to say. Estes does the opposite, she is very thorough. Also, has anyone taken the time to seriously look to other reasons why Hancock County Schools send kids to her? Maybe because they have a contract with Estes? Maybe they want to save their families money because a drive to Owensboro, Henderson, Hanson, etc can be expensive? Or maybe Estes is so good they trust her judgement? I would refer her to anyone.

I don't think the only reason they send her is because of relation to the superintendent. Actually I don't know if anyone else is in the county. I am 100% certain she is qualified, I WAS impressed with her services. As far as the cost, the school mandated it and they foot the bill. Only for the first evaluation. I think this is behind us, but if they say more counseling is needed and I have to pay, I will be asking questions, I don't think they can tell me where to go on my dollar. Again I do not have a problem with her services.

Actually you are all wrong about a contract between Estes Behavioral Health and the school system. The Hancock County Partner's coalition (the group who helps educate parents and teens on Substance Abuse) pays for any referrals if they are in trouble for substance abuse on school property.

In fact, the school systems tells all the faculty and staff NOT to refer patients to Estes Behavioral Health because of the relationship. I actually had to call a friend to find out if they were any good at what they do.
