Hello all. I hope this finds you safe, well and able to enjoy the warm weather. I know it’s been a little while since I’ve reached out. The last few months have been many things that I’m sure you all can relate to. I've kept busy with learning a lot of new things – technologies, marketing strategies, my normal medical continuing education etc. Lots of walking through quiet neighborhoods off the beaten path and some bike riding. It’s also been a time, more recently of sadness, reflection, action and hope that through the pain and the sound of raised voices all over the world, that we can finally look at ourselves and emerge from this time a better, more equal and just country. I have a lot of hope that we can.
Read on for information on the new space and very important safety procedures for coming into the office.
My New Space
The main thing I want to share today is that after 3 years on the upper east side, I am moving to the upper west side! I am very sad to leave my home tucked in the offices of Drs. Unger & Weisenseel and my friends on the staff, but this great opportunity for a private space presented itself, and I couldn’t say no. As you can see from the pictures, it’s light-filled and airy. The space is completely private which allows for less complicated procedures surrounding social distancing and safety. The new address is 133 W. 72nd St, Suite 704 which is between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues. Right above the AT&T store on the north side of the street.
At the same time, I’m pleased to let you all know that acupuncture has been deemed an essential service by New York State. You can see the confirmation from the NY State website by clicking the button below. I am opening up in the new location next week, starting Tuesday June 16th. My hours continue to be 10am-7pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. With the new safety procedures, I have to schedule cleaning time between each appointment which will amount to one fewer appointment slot every day. Please contact me as soon as possible to book a spot.
It is also important to understand the new safety procedures, but in the interest of brevity, I have posted them on my website for you to read. You can find them here. If you are planning on coming in, please read these procedures carefully. There are pre-screening questions in the confirmation email to reply to, a day of verbal screening at the door, hand sanitizing etc. You must wear a mask to the office and for the duration of your time here.
Please also note that I will be driving to the office every day and not getting on public transportation at all. Also, I was recently tested for COVID and was negative. I will continue to be tested every 2 to 3 weeks.
I am looking forward to seeing you again. I've enjoyed keeping in touch with many of you over these months and am happy I can finally say YES! to getting back to work on your pain and immune health.
Please give me a call to discuss scheduling an appointment. I know you'll love the new space as much as I do!! However, should you prefer, virtual visits are also an option for immune health and pain management.
