November 2023 Alert
Dr. Becky will not be seeing new patients From November 2023 through the end of the year.
Her in-person practice will be transitioning from Austin, TX to Lexington, KY.
The practice will be closed and Dr. Becky will be "radio-silent" from Thanksgiving to mid December.
Dr. Becky will be able to respond to questions from established patients on a limited basis from mid December through the end of the year.
Dr. Becky hopes to be available again for regular communication, and virtual appointments (including taking new patients) in the first weeks of 2024.
Please contact the scheduling coordinator to be put on the contact/ wait list during that time.

Scheduling coordinator / administrative assistant can be reached:
call or text: 512-766-4237
After you schedule your appointment, new clients will receive a series of emails for the onboarding process (patient portal, intake and consent forms, etc).
Visit Types: How to Choose
Dr. Becky offers free 15min "Meet and Greet" appointments for potential new clients. These visits are to determine if her services are a match for your needs, and if it make sense to become her client.
*Please note that no health advice will be given at these short interviews.*
Most new clients will default to the 90 minute, naturopathic, first visit.
If you need extra time you can choose the 2 hour option. If you feel you will need a longer time for your first visit, reach out to the scheduling coordinator to discuss a custom appointment time.
Follow up visits can be acupuncture only, naturopathic only or combined naturopathic and acupuncture visits.
Acupuncture requires a bare minimum of 35 min (when added onto a naturopathic visit), so please schedule enough time if you want to do both. The shortest possible ND/ Acupuncture combo visit time would be 1 hour, and that would leave only about 15-20 min to discuss naturopathic issues.
When estimating time needed, we generally recommend 15 min per question/ topic.
Lab review usually requires 30 min for straightforward labs (like screening bloodwork).
Review of the more complex functional tests AND going over a treatment plan to address issues found usually requires a full hour. Reviewing multiple, complex functional tests AND going over a treatment plan may require 90 min.
When in doubt - Reach out! The scheduling coordinator is available to help you get the right appointment type and time scheduled.
Practice Location Update
2023 has been a year of changes for Dr. Becky.
In April, 2023 Dr. Becky stopped seeing clients through Peoples Rx in Austin. All clients from Peoples Rx are considered clients of Dr. Becky's private practice. We have attempted to migrate all necessary records to the new private practice CHARM account. No new intake process or fees will be required to continue care.
July 2017 - Nov 2023:
Dr. Becky's private practice is based out of Si Shou Acupuncture Wellness Clinic (SSAW) in the Oak Hill neighborhood in south Austin. There she offers both naturopathic consultations and acupuncture services. Naturopathic consultations are also available remotely via phone or video conference. Please note that the front desk and office staff at SSAW are separate from Dr. Becky's practice. Please direct all questions or concerns to the contacts listed above (and below).
Dec 1, 2023 Dr. Becky will be leaving Si Shou Acupuncture Wellness and moving to Lexington, KY. After a brief pause to accomodate the move, she will be available for video and phone visits and is looking forward to continuing care for all of her Texas clients. She hopes to begin offering in-person and acupuncture care in Lexington, KY in the late winter/ early spring of 2024.
