To Our Cherished Patients,

We opened Root Natural Health in March 2011 for the purpose of providing holistic primary care to the Flagstaff community.  Since that time our business has thrived and our success has exemplified the need for excellent primary care in Flagstaff.

As most of you know Dr. Norris grew up on a blueberry farm in Roseburg, Oregon.  That farm is also doing well and is in need of the next generation of farmers in the Norris family to begin working it year-round.

It is therefore with mixed emotions that we are announcing our departure from Root Natural Health and Flagstaff to move back to Roseburg in order to work on the farm and start another practice.

The good news is we have excellent options for you to continue receiving holistic health care here in Flagstaff.

We will be passing the practice over to Dr. Stephanie Beynon, a Naturopathic Physician who has just moved to Flagstaff from Toronto, Canada.  Dr. Beynon is an outstanding physician and an incredibly warm and kind person.

She will also be joined by our personal friend Dr. Michael Knapp, a naturopathic physician who was a colleague of ours during our studies and residency at the National College of Natural Medicine.

We have the utmost confidence in both of these doctors. We trust that your future experiences with them will be as rewarding as they were with us.  See their enclosed biographies for more details.

All contact information for the clinic will remain the same.  Phone numbers, online scheduling, Dakota, supplements, and the other details you have become familiar with will remain in place following the transition.

We will be entrusting your chart to the new physicians unless you indicate otherwise.  If you prefer for your chart not to remain with Root Natural Health following the transition please contact us within the next 30 days to discuss other arrangements. You can contact us at (928) 637-6795 or

The clinic will officially transfer over to Dr. Stephanie Beynon on October 14th, 2012.

The new doctors will be available to manage your current prescriptions and medical needs as established patients of Root Natural Health.

We will be hosting an open house at the clinic to welcome the new doctors on Friday October 5th from 4-7pm.  Say good-bye, say hello, eat snacks and enjoy.  More details to come.

We are grateful for the relationships we have developed with all of you over the last nineteen months.  We can only hope that our practice in Roseburg is as fulfilling as this one has been for us.

If you would like to contact us in the future you can reach Dr. Sweeney at or Dr. Norris at

In Love and Health,

Ryan and Carrie
