About Us

Our mission and the story behind our amazing team.

Our Story

Many people want to change the healthcare patient experience for the better, but the how and when remains illusive. Our journey in launching Essential Clinic was a long and windy one. Our team was initially involved in creating clinical decision software to streamline clinics (SnapDx). From that experience we saw that most traditional clinics are not ready yet to to adopt technology in a transformative way.

So we decided to start our own clinic. Essential Clinic is built from the ground-up with our own vision of how evidence-based guidelines should be used to treat common healthcare issues. We hope the end result is happier patients. It’s working so far, and more is yet to come!
