Harapat said that in Tucumcari, he plans to consult patients in herbs; naturopathy; iridology, measuring health through the iris of the eye;  and massage.  His store in Tucumcari will also sell medicinal herbs and New Mexico gifts.

Harapat has received $10,000 in Local Economic Development Act funding to help expand his Las Vegas-based naturopathic medical practice to Tucumcari.

Harapat said he is establishing an office in Tucumcari because “I have quite a few patients from Tucumcari, Logan and Amarillo,” he said, “and I think Tucumcari will be a nice, pleasant place to work.”

To set an appointment or find out store hours, Harapat may be reached at (505) 454-9240, or after hours at (505) 429-3773.
