Oct 31, 2012 02:33PM
Bright-eyed students and faculty aren't the only ones filling Bastyr University California's new campus this fall. The new Sorrento Valley campus also sees the opening of a health clinic led by university faculty. "We see this as phase one," says Moira Fitzpatrick, PhD, ND, FICPP, CHT, vice president for Bastyr University California. "We're going to provide excellent comprehensive health care and teach our students at the same time. As the university grows, the clinic will expand."
Bastyr Clinic provides both naturopathic medicine, based on the body's natural ability to heal, and integrative medicine, which combines conventional and traditional medicine. The clinic's services include nutrition counseling, botanical medicine, mind-body medicine, intravenous (IV) protocols, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, craniosacral therapy and energy medicine. It also specializes in women’s health care, including hormonal support and annual exams.
Bastyr purchased the successful San Diego practice of Monique Mazza, ND, who joins the university as a clinical faculty member. The arrangement gives the clinic an existing base of patients and provides Dr. Mazza's patients with continuity of care.
"I'm excited to provide cutting-edge naturopathic health care to new and existing patients alike," Dr. Mazza says.
Bastyr Clinic is cash-based and offers 20 percent discounts to seniors and students. It also offers an income-based sliding fee scale to individuals and families.
Location: 4106 Sorrento Valley Blvd., San Diego. Hours: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, with an hour of closure for lunch. For appointments and other questions, call 858-246-9730 or visit Bastyr.edu/California.
