The Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine of New York Chiropractic College features its own full-service herb dispensary that fills orders for the various AOM clinical sites, including the Seneca Falls Health Center, the NYCC Campus Health Center, and Lifetime Care in Rochester, NY. It is the largest herb dispensary in upstate New York, carrying more than three hundred high-quality raw herbs from China, more than three hundred granulated formulas and single herbs, and a large selection of prepared medicines. The dispensary also serves as a clinical & didactic training facility for the School’s MSAOM student interns.
Herbs are dispensed by prescription only. Practitioners may place orders in person at the Seneca Falls Health Center clinic location, or by phone or fax.
The Dispensary’s raw herbs are of the finest pharmaceutical grade, having been harvested and processed using the highest possible standards. Processing involves cleaning, soaking, slicing, and drying, as well as testing for pesticide residues, bacterial content and heavy metals. No endangered species of any kind, plant or animal, are used. The Dispensary’s suppliers are carefully selected for their attention to product quality and correct species identification. The Finger Lakes School of AOM of NYCC is continuously working to improve its already exemplary dispensary standards in order to comply with all federal guidelines for quality assurance, product tracking, and patient safety.
