Mind, Body & Spirit

We strive to support individuals and their families in their efforts to live well by providing diversified coordinated care, guidance and education that encompasses body, mind and spirit. We promote compassion, collaboration and communication because care is "better together."

Dr. Maria Patriquin MD CCFP Founder of Living Well
