Your Partner in Natural
Green Mountain Medicine
Mika Bassett, ND, LAc, MSOM, DiplAc
We are here for you! Let’s pause, take a deep breath, and know that we are each empowered to take positive steps to treat and protect our health and wellness. Here are the current steps we are taking to provide you with the best service possible at this time:
1. We have resumed scheduling in-office visits for acupuncture as well as for naturopathic care that warrants an in-person visit. For those not needing in-office care, we will continue to offer phone consults and video appointments.
2. We have changed the flow and procedures in our office to increase distancing and safety for you and our staff. We are limiting the number of patients in the office, ask patients to wear a cloth face-covering when possible, and have implemented other safety measures and screening before and during visits. Our staff will wear a cloth face covering and your doctor will wear a surgical mask. We have always been meticulous with sanitation, and are now taking extra steps to sanitize office touch points before and after each patient visit.
3. We now offer touchless or low-touch supplement pickup in addition to in-office and online medicinary purchases. Simply call in your order, pay online (or at your car window), pick up your order outside our office or let us bring it to your car. You may also order from our online Product Store to have items sent to your door.
Now more than ever is the time to address acute and chronic health conditions, and improve overall wellness. We are excited to help you grow stronger in this season, both mentally and physically.
