A New Chapter for Seattle Naturopathy & Acupuncture Center
It is with bittersweet feelings that we, Dr. Felice Barnow and Dr. Rick Posmantur, announce that we will be retiring after thirty-five years of practice. We will greatly miss all of you and our meaningful interactions, but we are looking forward to our next phase of life.
Dr. Barnow will be retiring at the end of 2021 and Dr. Posmantur will be retiring in the spring of 2022.
With that news, we’d like to announce our new team and any important changes coming to SNAC.
Our newest member of the team, Dr. Enrica Maffucci, began working at the clinic earlier this month. She and Dr. Tressa Pinkleton will be taking over Dr. Barnow’s practice. If you have upcoming appointments with Dr. Barnow, you will likely have an opportunity to meet Dr. Maffucci at that time.
Dr. Paris Preston will be joining the practice in January 2021. She has been in practice for 29 years and is very excited to join the SNAC team.
Profiles for both Dr. Maffucci and Dr. Preston will soon be up on our website for you to learn more about each of them. An email announcement will be made when that time comes.
Another doctor, who is dual licensed as a naturopathic physician and an acupuncturist, will be starting later this year to take over Dr. Posmantur’s practice. We will share more information after we have finalized this arrangement.
Lastly, Dr. Pinkleton is acquiring the clinic and will take over its day-to-day management as the new clinical director in the upcoming year. She joined the team five years ago with this intention, and has been receiving training for this role since the beginning of her tenure. She is both excited and honored to lead SNAC as it enters its new stage of service to the community.
We have chosen these doctors for you with great care so that you can continue to receive the quality healthcare you deserve. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and schedule a complimentary 15-minute consult with any of them if you’d like to get to know them better.
It has been a privilege serving you and we wish you a fond farewell,
Dr. Felice & Dr. Rick
