*Portland Office Closure*

A Letter from Dr. Ward-Selinger

Dear Patients, 

I am saddened to report that the building which hosts Wildflower Natural Medicine in Portland will be closing its doors for major renovations in Summer 2022. After much deliberation, I will be using this opportunity to close the physical doors of Wildflower Natural Medicine in Portland. I will continue to see patients virtually for the long term. If you are content with continuing to see me via Telemedicine, there is no action that you need to take. 

For In-Person care, the Wildflower-Bend office is currently up and running, if you want a great excuse to visit the lovely Bend area. I would love to see you there. For In-Person medical care in Portland, you can continue or transfer care to Dr. Signe Poquette. She is practicing at the Ren Clinic in NE Portland starting this month. She will have access to your notes at Wildflower and would only need you to sign new consent forms to see her at the new clinic space. We will do everything we can to make sure that is a swift transition for you. Their website is therenclinic.com

This timeline is shorter than I had envisioned when moving to Bend last year, but unfortunately finding a new space and all of the tasks involved are beyond my current capacities. If you are able to schedule an In-Person visit for my final trip to the office in May, it would be great to see you. There is potential that I could work out of another practitioners’ office in the future and still do occasional In-Person visits in Portland, but as of now there are no arrangements for this. I understand that for many people, having the quick accessibility to their doctor In-Person is important. I understand this may alter your plans for your long term health care needs.

Please accept my sincerest gratitude for the opportunity to be part of your healthcare team. I do hope to continue to be a part of your team in whatever capacity you prefer. It has been a wonderful 5 years at the Health on Hawthorne Building in Portland. I will miss the quirky old house and the bustling sounds of Hawthorne Boulevard. Most of all, I will miss seeing your smiling faces in person. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
