Our goal at Vitamins First is not only to offer exceptional knowledge and service in a retail setting but also to be a resource centre for your health.
With this in mind we have had a clinic space in the lower level of Vitamins First for over 10 years. We realize that in a retail setting there are limitations to the health concerns we are able to deal with. The Vitamins First Holistic Clinic addresses those limitations. The health practitioners in the Clinic are able to offer in-depth, individualized consultations in order to assess and address your health concerns.
