Have you ever been out and about and thought, “Oh, maybe I’ll go get an acupuncture treatment,” but you didn’t want to have to log in to the website to book an appointment, and you weren’t sure if we were open or if there was space for you to be a walk-in, so you just skipped it? Now you can make appointments by text message!
As you know, our phone always goes to voicemail to avoid disrupting the treatment room. But if you text us (same phone number, 503.683.2738) your message will pop up on the reception ipad and we’ll know you’re coming.
If you’d like to use this method, get started by texting “hours” and your first and last name to 503.683.2738. We’ll reply with our business hours, and that way the next time you’re out and about and thinking of popping by, you can check to see if we’re open by visiting your text history.
If we’re open and you want to come in, just text us a note with what time you’d like to drop by and we’ll know to expect you. If we already have a few people coming in at the same time, we can text back let you know if it would be better to come in a little earlier or later to avoid having to wait. Sometimes our reply might be right away, or sometimes it might be a few minutes if we’re with a patient when it comes in, but you don’t have to wait for a reply to head over.
Hopefully this option will make it a little easier to squeeze acupuncture into your schedule!
