This has been a very difficult and challenging time for us all. It is a time of transition, adjustment, and most importantly, understanding. As a healthcare provider I see people everyday who are managing some very difficult challenges both physically and emotionally. I continuously feel grateful for the opportunity to provide care and support to those in need. As a business owner I am continually trying to adapt and meet the needs of the Bellingham community.
With that in mind, I wanted to share a few key happenings so that I can better serve my community.
Expanded Office Hours
As of September 1st, I have expanded my office office hours. My current weekly scheduling window is as follows:
Tuesday 8:00 am - 6:30 pm
Wednesday 8:00 am - 6:30 pm
Thursday 8:00 am - 6:30 pm
Friday 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
In an effort to maintain a safe office environment for my patients during the COVID pandemic, I continue to offer a LIMITED schedule. Unfortunately, I realize these limitations do occasionally create constrictions in the booking availability.
I am encouraging Patients to schedule 2-3 weeks in advance at a minimum to ensure more convenient appointment times.
Quickly and conveniently schedule your acupuncture treatments online Patient Portal.
We are all in this together. I truly appreciate and value your support. It fills my heart each day to serve my community. I am honored to assist in the health and well-being of my community.
I continue to encourage you to connect with friends, family, and neighbors to share in your love and support.
