Saying Goodbye to Dr. Jen Bentch

by | Jul 18, 2022 | Uncategorized

I have been honored to work with you and humbled by the opportunity to serve as your physician. It is therefore with mixed emotions that I announce I will be leaving Northwest Integrative Medicine at the end of July as my family relocates to the East Coast.

As I will no longer be able to provide you with healthcare services after relocating, your care will be transferred into the capable hands of one of the following practitioners at Northwest Integrative Medicine:

Jordan McLendon, ND
Naturopathic primary care physician specializing in mental health, sleep, women’s health, LGBTQ care and endocrine balance.

Tediana Torrens, ND
Naturopathic primary care physician with a strong focus on pediatric care, women’s health, LGBTQ care and neurodiversity.

Christopher Randolph, ND
Naturopathic primary care physician serving patients of all ages, genders, and needs.

All follow-up visits after July 22nd will be transferred to the compassionate, gracious hands of the providers above. I have full confidence in their ability to serve you and meet your needs as I transition out of the state.

Any future healthcare appointments will be scheduled with one of the above providers, rather than with me. If you have an outstanding lab order, image order, or any other investigations, please call to schedule a follow-up appointment so your new provider can address these with you.

My aim is to ensure you receive the best possible care in my absence and that this process is completed as smoothly as is possible. As such, you do not need to call Northwest Integrative Medicine to transfer your care to one of the above practitioners. The process will happen automatically, and we are individually determining the best fit for each of my patients.

All existing prescription refills will still be available at your established pharmacy. New refills may require an in-office visit with your new practitioner and will otherwise be filled without excess delay or new paperwork, and bridge prescriptions can often be offered to ensure no gaps in your care.

Contact the front staff for Northwest Integrative Medicine at 503-855-4341 with any questions or concerns. If you utilize CHARM’s EHR Messaging, please message Mary for questions regarding prescriptions and referrals, and Elia for scheduling. Everyone is happy to help you best navigate this transition and schedule any follow-up appointments. Please know that every practitioner at Northwest Integrative Medicine is committed to your health and wellness. I have the utmost confidence in their abilities to provide excellent care.

Thank you for allowing me to serve you and your families as a physician over the past year. I will carry many important lessons with me east and wish every person the best in the months and years to come.
