Due to the rapidly changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, office procedures for in-person visits are subject to change.

Video appointments are always available.

Due to the onset of cold and flu season in Santa Cruz, I have temporarily closed my office to in-person visits, and I am only seeing patients by video, phone, or email. This is out of consideration for the immune-suppressed people in my practice who have not developed antibodies. Herbs will be mailed out by Priority Mail, or they can be left in the lockbox outside my office door. 

People who don’t require hospitalization have responded very well to herbs, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if you do develop COVID. I have treated dozens of cases since the beginning of 2020. The sooner you start the herbs, the faster you will feel better. We can do a video appointment and determine the correct herbs for you. Most cases require herbs for a minimum of two weeks, with more serious cases requiring 4 weeks. If you are in the Bay Area, you will typically receive your herbs the next day

If you are experiencing severe symptoms, or if you have an underlying condition that puts you at a higher risk, don’t hesitate to call 911 to receive emergency medical treatment. Please get your medical information from reliable sources, and ignore the conspiracy theories that are being spread in social media.
