Now enrolling students for Winter Session 2014

We are now seeing students in our new Northeast Clinic!
3260 Eagle Park Dr. NE Suite 117
Grand Rapids, MI 49525

We have moved out of the temporary space and into our new suite.  If you enter on the east side of the building, our clinic is just inside the doors.

For those of you who haven't been there yet, our new NE Grand Rapids clinic is in the Eaglecrest complex near the corner of the East Beltline and Leonard St.  Our Grandville office will not be changing, but this new location replaced our office in the BRAINS building.

You can access the Eaglecrest complex from the East Beltline or from Leonard St.
