What's New eNewsletter

I cannot believe it is fall already! We spent a lot of the summer on the water as our whole family has gotten back into day sailing. It is hard to say good by to our late nights out on the Willamette.

I am excited to welcome Megan Golani ND to our clinic. Dr. Golani has always impressed me with her calm wisdom and strength. I have known her for a number of years and she is an excellent primary care doctor. She works full time at NUNM (formerly NCNM) we are fortunate to have her with us and in a place where she can practice her specialties in pre and post natal health and pediatrics. She loves doing pelvic care work and cranio-sacral. I know you will enjoy meeting her. If you have more questions or wonder if she is a good match for you or your friends and loved ones, please reach out to her or book a free 15 minute consult.
