I hope you are taking this precious time to savor and enjoy this very warm summer as much as you can! As 2020 continues to unfold, evolve and move forward (fortunately!), there have been many changes for most everyone.
Change can be good! It usually means that something better is waiting ahead. Though you may not be able to foresee that during the transition.
Before the pandemic and quarantine occurred, I was planning to move my physical office from the El Dorado Hills Business Park to a Granite Bay office overlooking a beautiful pond in a great easily accessible location. That was to begin May 1st, 2020.
Like so many others have experienced, plans have changed, were postponed or unfortunately canceled altogether in many cases. My plan to move that office closer to my home in Roseville was supposed to be postponed, but later realized the Granite Bay office was not quite the best fit for what I was looking for. Flexibility and Adaptability are important qualities to have!
Along with countless people across this world, I chose to work from home and quickly transitioned my practice to a telemedicine platform communicating with patients via videoconference and phone. I already had a home office set up so it seemed like the perfect solution. Not an easy transition, mind you, but one that involved a lot of uncertainty, surrendering, learning, growing and adjusting!
Now that it has been 5 months since that critical turning point in our world, country, state and local communities, I have come to realize the importance of having a physical office for local patients to see and communicate with me in person if they choose.
With today’s outstanding, advanced and efficient technology at being able to communicate by videoconference with people from all over the world (which is still pretty phenomenal!), nothing compares to that in person human to human interaction. And I do greatly miss talking with my patients in person.
With that said, starting August 19, 2020, I have chosen to establish a new main office location in Rocklin, California, about 25 miles north of Sacramento.
The new office address is:
6518 Lonetree Blvd Rocklin, CA 95765
Rather than reverting back to a full time “brick and mortar” office, this will be a virtual office. This means that I have access to office suites or small conference rooms to meet with New Patients who prefer to meet with me in person for their first appointment.
To schedule that in person New Patient Appointment, please reach out to me directly via email – firstname.lastname@example.org – to discuss possible dates and times.
As usual, for all existing patients, you can continue to schedule your Follow up Appointments via Zoom Videoconference or Phone from the website https://doctorkristi.com.
Please continue to eat healthy, move your body, get out of town (hit the reset button!) and connect with others.
