Clinic Updates

Great news… we are once again accepting new patients into the practice!

The practice has become very busy in the last few years and has achieved very good patient outcomes. To achieve even better results we have developed “The Essentials Program”. Our goal is superior outcomes for patients and therefore we will now exclusively be offering this comprehensive year-long health optimization program. We have expanded our clinic staff to include a nurse-health coach and a holistic nutritionist. Working alongside Dr. Racic, our team will be there to support you during your healing journey.

As spots are limited, we choose to work with only highly motivated patients. If you are interested in working with Dr. Racic and her team, please contact the admin team, Lisa or Shirley for further details.
