Out with the old and in with the new!
2017 was a fantastically tumultuous year for us here at Avalon. Buying the business, but losing Dr. Haff, and adding to my therapeutic repertoire are just a few of the biggies that happened. This year will be more changes in store, I'm sure, but we'll keep you posted as they happen.
I'm still looking for some new doctors to add to the staff, and have recently had some great applicants. Interviewing, vetting, negotiating, etc all need to happen before I commit to bringing someone into our happy home, but it's all in the works.
If you've been in the office in the past few months, you know that Sandra from Mercy Diagnostics is here with us on Fridays. So if you need a blood draw from a fantastic, patient, and fun phlebotomist, schedule any blood draws with us for Friday. She's still at another location M-Th if you need a different day (ask for details).
We also rented one of the offices to a wonderfully kind therapist by the name of John Powell. He's technically a separate business, so you need to contact him directly to schedule an appointment. And yes, he is taking new clients.
I'm loving the results I get from the Walsh Research Institute protocols I've been using. The information I learned has revolutionized my practice and my success. I've also started to immerse myself in Body-positivity and the Health At Every Size Movement, which I feel is very in-line with all of the Naturopathic Principles.
See below for some highlighted changes!
Telemedicine is here!
Technically, it has been authorized for us to do telemedicine since October 1st, but since I was in the midst of purchasing the business, I kind of dropped the ball. And as I'm writing this, schools are closed due to frigid cold temperatures. Wouldn't it be great if you could meet with me via a virtual face-to-face HIPAA-compliant website?
You'll need internet access, and a device with a camera, but that's it. And, I'm only booking 15 or 30 minute slots, so if you feel like you need more time, then I'll need you to physically come to the office. I'm sure there will be a few bugs to work out along the way, so please be patient.
We have a bunch of really great, high quality supplements that I do not tend to prescribe and, I'd like to make room for some new options. So, I'm giving you 50% off the supplements on the shelf closest to the hallway. Additional discounts do not apply, but if you see something you want, come get it. These are supplements I won't be replacing on our shelves in the future.

I will be expanding the available hours in which you can schedule with me at the end of February. Our overall schedule of 9-5 isn't changing, just how many patient-hours I have in a day.
Spotted Jewelweed (Impatiens biflora) is an invaluable tool when out in the woods hiking. The saponins found in the stem or leaves can emulsify and diminish the damage caused by poison ivy. It's also great for bug bites, rashes from stinging nettles, burns, cuts, acne, eczema, fungal infections, or any other skin irritation.
