Seasonal Affective Disorder

Feeling more down, sad, “blah” during the colder months is an issue that many people face. Usually it’s because of the fewer hours of daylight. For many people, using a light box can be helpful. Light boxes should be 10,000 Lux, which refers to the quality of the light given off by the device. Amazon has these for safe for $100 or less. Here is a link to a quality box on Amazon.com if you are interested in trying one. To use it, place it on a table about 2 feet away from your eyes. You do not have to stare directly at it, so it can be used while reading the paper or doing homework, for example. Use it for about 30 minutes a day for good effect. Feel free to ask me if you have any questions about it.

Now scheduling!

Thanks for your patience while we have been busy getting the transition completed. We are now scheduling patients. Please see the “appointments” tab for more information. Patients who have seen Dr. Beasley previously, please still complete the new patient paperwork in order to update the new record. Once we get underway, we expect most communication to take place within the patient portal. You will be provided this information once you have established care at the new office.

Opening soon!

We are busy making this practice and website a reality!  Please forgive us while we finish up construction of this site.  Dr. Beasley looks forward to beginning her practice in her new location in North Chattanooga.  This site should be functional within the next two days.  Thanks for your patience!
