Harborside Healthcare is a multi-disciplinary group of independent clinicians, and while each practitioner schedules appointments and bills individually, the clinic adheres to a common Mission Statement: To provide quality healthcare for all patients. This provides the framework for Michele’s approach to acupuncture and is upheld by all the the clinicians at Harborside Healtchare. Patients are treated with respect and not discriminated against based on religion, gender, race and sexual orientation.
In her free time, MIchele enjoys spending time with friends, sewing projects, writing, cooking Indian food and discovering the hiking trails of Whatcom County with her Icelandic Sheepdog, Rokki. You will likely get to meet Rokki at the clinic, as he works part-time gently greeting patients and diligently herding practitioners.
