12.30.1941 - 02.13.2020
With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our HHA family member, co-worker and dear friend Gwynn Palmer.
Many years ago, through her own journey with chronic illness and battle with cancer, Gwynn fell in love with holistic medicine. It was from that place that she poured her whole heart into her patients' care, sharing the knowledge and wisdom she acquired along the way.
Gwynn worked with Holistic Healing Arts from the start. In 2003, she helped lay the very foundation on which Holistic Healing Arts continues to stand. Gwynn continued seeing patients until 2019, when our clinic moved into its new space.
She was very loved and respected by so many of our long time patients and all of our staff.
Gwynn, we love you dearly. You're one of a kind, and we miss you already.
You, most certainly, will be missed...

Concerns about the Wuhan Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)?
Many of you have been expressing concern over the new Wuhan Coronavirus out of China, a big topic in both the local and national news. Our providers are reviewing the latest data and will be coming up with a game-plan for our patients and staff in case it is needed, but have reassured us that at this time, there in no reason for over concern.
Please continue safe practices, such as regular hand washing and limiting time around others who are ill or symptomatic.
As always, we request that patients who are acutely ill or presenting with cold or flu symptoms notify our office prior to in-office visits, allowing us time to take appropriate measures to protect our immune deficient patients and staff. If you are a local patient, at times, this may result in switching an office visit to a phone consult.
Face masks and hand sanitizer are always located throughout the clinic for patient and staff use as well.
Please check back for any future related updates.
