Our Office and Staff Members

Lindsey G. McKay PA-C

Upon graduating from the University of Pennsylvania in 2010 with a Master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies, Ms. McKay returned to her hometown of Prineville to provide medical care to her community. After working in a small primary care office in town, she opened Cascade Direct Care in 2013.

Lindsey wanted the opportunity spend more time with her patients in order to offer them the care that she felt that they deserved. The direct primary care model offered the framework for this to become a reality. Lindsey feels that her work is a partnership with each patient, and she strives to find treatment options that make sense for the individual.

Ms. McKay completed her undergraduate training at the University of Colorado in Psychology. Outside of the office, Lindsey enjoys time with her two children and husband, gardening, traveling, and the plethora of outdoor activities that Central Oregon has to offer.

He greatly enjoys helping our patients, and finds his work to be very satisfying. Outside of the office, Chris enjoys skateboarding, snowboarding, modifying video games, hiking, travel, and spending time with his wife and two children.
