Rita Weiss, PA-C

Physician Assistant

Rita Weiss is a Physician Assistant specializing in child and adolescent psychiatry. She recently graduated from Emory University where she obtained a dual degree masters in Public Health and Physician Assistant. She is no stranger to the health care field having worked as a registered nurse for the past five years. Her passion has long been caring for children. She most enjoys serving children who are facing the challenges that come with living the experience of impaired mental health, abuse, or neglect. Rita has a special place in her heart for those children growing up in foster care.

Rita started her nursing career volunteering as a nurse with medically disabled and hospice orphans. She then went into inpatient oncology nursing, before she returned to her true passion, pediatric mental health. She worked at a pediatric psychiatric residential facility while continuing her education to better prepare herself to provide optimal care to some of the most vulnerable populations.

Dr. Reynolds’ practice of excellence in care, vast stores of expertise, and passion for non-traditional and holistic care, brought her back to Ohio to partner with the wonderful organization that is 4KidHelp.
