Interview with Beth Dorsey, Owner of Points for Wellness
I had the pleasure and honor of interviewing the owner of Points for Wellness and my dear friend, Beth Dorsey. Who in my opinion, is one of the most magical medicine practitioners not only in Santa Cruz, but in California. And she will soon be known as Dr. Dorsey, which I am really excited to get to call her!
Beth Dorsey is an acupuncturist, herbalist, fertility specialist and all around health enthusiast. She works with patients one on one in her private practice creating individualized treatment plans, leading Fertile Ground workshops, and guiding groups online to balance their hormones, enhance their fertility and achieve optimal health. Beth Dorsey practices functional medicine, which is a style of medicine that gets after the root cause of disease instead of symptom based medicine that treats a symptom that is going on but not really why that symptom is there. Her practice, Points for Wellness has two locations, one in Soquel and the other in Santa Cruz.
During this pandemic, Points for Wellness has remained open because they are considered essential workers. But of course, the amount of patients coming in decreased, so Beth took the time to perfect her policies and procedures and change things for her in-clinic. For the in-clinic, Beth is currently having patients wait outside in their cars, to avoid an abundance of people in the waiting room. Everyone is required to wear masks, Beth is also cleaning the entire clinic when she first arrives, and deep clean between patients. And right now she is also offering tele-medicine, where she can consult her patients or future patients via Zoom Call and gives them an at-home plan, prior to their in person visit.
I hope that you enjoyed this interview with Beth. And I hope that you enjoyed learning a little bit more about her business, what she does, and how she has shifted during this pandemic.
