Why Healthy Connections?

Too often, people think of “wellness” in temporary terms. They want to work with doctors and take short-term steps to improve their life… and “wellness”… but often fall back to their less healthy routines once they are left to fend for themselves.

After years of seeing this happen with his patients, Dr. Horacek wanted to open a clinic that not only helped patients improve their gastrointestinal health and improve their overall wellness, but also give them the tools to continue their progress “infinitely,” or long after they have left the clinic for good.

Meet Our Team
