Our Practice

Dr. Grant Born founded The Born Preventive Health Care Clinic in 1982 after receiving a poor prognosis for recovery from heart failure. He pioneered the principles of preventive medicine and developed the approach to medical care that continues to be our focus 36 years later. After his passing in 1998, his partner and wife, Dr. Tammy Born Huizenga, assumed leadership of the clinic.

The Born Clinic was created to be an institution of preventive medicine with a focus on centering patient care and providing access to medical science and information that has not yet been fully incorporated into conventional medicine. The Born Clinic has grown from a family practice to an internationally respected organization in preventive medicine. Our team of compassionate practitioners strive to stay on the leading edge of innovative thinking in medical care as we serve nearly 10,000 patients annually.
