Dr. Schnurr Practice Update

Beginning in May, I will be available at Sage Clinic on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and at Little Bird Farm on Mondays and Tuesdays.

I am excited to welcome my colleague, Dr. Julia Christensen, ND who will be joining Sage Clinic as an associate who I will be mentoring, beginning in May. We have been working together since 2009 when Julia was completing a two-year clinical internship at the non-profit family clinic I supervise here in Victoria.   She is a wise, caring and intuitive practitioner who I am sure will bring valuable insight to your care.

Julia is currently accepting new patients and will be available for acute follow-up consultations as needed.   She will also be covering my practice during my upcoming maternity leave beginning at the end of August.
