2021 Update from Healthwise Integrative Medicine:
There are some major shifts happening at our clinic that we want you to be aware of. This time of transition will be significant, but we want to assure all of you that your needs will continue to be met. That is of the utmost importance for us all here at Healthwise.
Dr. Simon will no longer be seeing patients as of May 14th, 2021. She has come to this decision after a lot of reflection and realization that a scaled-down practice, as was previously envisioned, will not be in the best interests of her patients while also allowing full focus on her non-profit work dedicated to helping to advance the profession. If you need to contact Dr. Simon, you are still welcome to call the clinic directly at (206)524-0863.
Dr. Baker has opened her own private practice in the North Seattle area starting May 1, 2021. She is making this exciting change both for her family and for her professional future. She has thoroughly enjoyed her time working with the fantastic doctors and staff at Healthwise Integrative Medicine and we have loved having her on the team.
She would be honored for her patients to join her in this transition and to continue making progress on their health journeys. She will continue to bill insurance and see patients via both telemedicine and in-person appointments. For those who have appointments currently scheduled at Healthwise after April 27th, Lacee or Dr. Baker will call you to help transfer to the new clinic.

Dr. McKinstry is ramping up her practice with Starkel Nutrition! She is taking over for many of Dr. Simon’s patients both with telemedicine and in-person visits and she will continue to take insurance. Her schedule is filling up, but there will be room for new additions. To schedule with Dr. McKinstry, please click the following link: https://www.starkelnutrition.com/contact/
Healthwise was founded in 2004. Since then, we have been honored to be a part of so many patients’ journeys to wellness. With all things, change is inevitable. Two doctors are growing their practices and one will be taking a
leave. With all of this, please know that we are here to help you and to make sure you find the right doctor for you.
With kind regards,
Drs. Simon, Baker, and McKinstry
