Darren Compas, APRN

Darren Compas graduated from Southeast Missouri State in 1996 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Bachelor of General Studies degree. He then moved to Arkansas to work at St. Vincent Hospital as a cardiovascular nurse, then working in psychiatry. He did hospital inpatient and consults for delirium, dementia and psychiatric issues for a group of doctors.

Darren then went to work for the Department of Geriatrics at UAMS on a consulting team managing medical issues with a special focus on delirium. While there, he earned his Masters’s degree and became board-certified in adult and geriatric primary care. He then worked outside of UAMS for a brief time seeing patients in nursing homes with dementia and mood issues. He then returned to consult on the Department of Psychiatry team at UAMS.

Darren says that joining Alleviant was a perfect fit. “I love the fusion of medicine and psychiatry and holistically treating patients – not just focusing on symptoms but finding the cause of their symptoms.”
