About Born Clinic

At Born Clinic, we are passionate about empowering our patients to have more control over their health, and challenge the idea of a “one-size-fits-all” model of medicine. Those under our care can expect their appointments to include detailed health intakes supported by up-to-date laboratory testing, and a focus on treatment and prevention through a prescribed combination of conventional medicine, pharmaceutical grade supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, and osteopathic manipulations.
